We are actively raising our Pre-A financing round. The plan is to use Pre-A funds to start construction and install our first two malting drums in Walla Walla, while adding team members, working capital, and additional professional support. We will further our development of strategic partnerships in both Northwest and Alaska markets, advance customer relationships, and improve our operating systems. Investments will be made in the long-term design and construction plan for our Walla Walla facility. A phased action plan will support development of the Mainstem Alaska Hub, with capital-lite Alaska legwork to be bolstered substantially by subsequent Series A funding.
Mainstem's Pre-A is be an opportunity for investors to get behind us early, in exchange for the ability to influence Mainstem at a pivotal time and for a higher potential return on their investment. These investors should believe that their financing is the missing link between Mainstem's current market positioning and being ready to build a multi-million dollar malting facility in Walla Walla. They should see strong Alaskan market potential very close on the horizon. They should take confidence that financing will be focused on immediate growth opportunities, not prior baggage.
Series A Round
Deal to Follow
(2020 Target Close)
The current plan is to use Series A funds to bolster our build-out of the Mainstem Northwest Hub in Walla Walla, and associated internal capacity required to make this facility a regional success. Additional resources will be allocated toward more advanced development of the Mainstem Alaska Hub. Additional hub concepts, including the Mainstem Southwest Hub, will be put through formal feasibility and strategic assessment.
Mainstem's Series A will be an opportunity to invest in the company once more benchmarks have been reached and market potential becomes more readily recognizable. Both new-to-Mainstem and Pre-A investors will be invited to support the company through an exciting new chapter, where substantial capital is put to work towards substantial growth into target markets.
