In Q3 2020, Genius Group has finalised its IPO plans on the New York Stock Exchange. The result of our acquisition activity and a new independent valuation on GeniusU has led to a revision on the forecast IPO price from $150 million to $300 million.
As a result of this significant increase in capital value, we are offering a final opportunity for our existing shareholders to either convert their convertible loans or top up their equity investment at the current $150 million valuation, which now represents a potential 50% discount on the IPO valuation of $300 million.
We are limiting this offer to our existing shareholders, and we are limiting the shares offered to $1,000,000 in shares.
Genius Group Ltd owns the GeniusU EdTech Platform, Genius Resorts and Genius Institute and has grown from $8 million in 2015 to $150 million valuation in 2020, with a projected IPO valuation of $300 million in 2021 when we complete on our planned acquisitions. It has grown to 1,4 million students and $40 million expected revenue in 2020. Genius Group is the World’s No.1 Entrepreneur Education Group.
Genius Group continues to expand as a Venture Builder, acquiring profitable training companies and then accelerating their growth through the tools, marketing and strategic vision provided by GeniusU and their individual expertise. In 2019, Genius Group acquired Genius Institute (rebranded from Entrepreneurs Institute), which owns all of the IP created by Roger James Hamilton.
In 2020 the group acquired Genius Resorts (rebranded from Entrepreneur Resorts), the world’s leading group of education based resorts and clubs running entrepreneur events and accelerators, with locations in Bali, Singapore, South Africa and Czech Republic. The company is a public listed company with a current market cap of $32 million.
Genius Group is also proceeding with five other acquisitions which add to our projected IPO valuation of $300 million.
Currently at a $150 million valuation after acquisitions, the group has recently completed an independent valuation on GeniusU as an Edtech company and its valuation has been raised to $202 million. As a result of these recent developments, Genius Group and our advisors have reset the target IPO valuation to $300 million (The final IPO price will depend on the IPO Road Show response immediately prior to the IPO). The plan is then to grow to $2 billion within 5 years.
Funds from the IPO will be used to continue our acquisition growth strategy and to build our marketing and management.
With the ongoing impact of the current coronavirus crisis, Genius Group continues to achieve its targets and is raising a final $1,000,000 to pursue its acquisition strategy on the path to the IPO. The funds are being raised as direct equity in the group that will benefit from all the capital growth of the share value.
The first $500,000 raised will attract exciting bonuses at both the Gold and Platinum investment levels.
