U.S.-based

international exchange Coinbase

announced plans for a new round of private financing with which it expects to raise about USD $1.5 billion, capital that it will use to fund its expansion plans.

Coinbase will raise more funds

This was revealed by the Coinbase

team in a press release published today, where it revealed that the funding will be done through the sale of notes that will mature between 2028 and 2031, all this in a round that will only be directed to a select group of investors.

In this regard, the statement reads

:

“The notes and related collateral will only be offered and sold by private offering memorandum to persons listed as qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”); and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. Neither the notes nor the related collateral have been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.”

‘As such, Coinbase

is committed to fully and unconditionally guarantee the notes traded. Buyers will be able to negotiate interest rates, trading provisions, and other terms as appropriate.

Bolstering its expansion plans

Regarding

the destination of the funds, Coinbase

indicated that the capital raised will be used to fund various initiatives, all of which are focused on promoting the company’s growth and expanding its operations:

“This capital raise represents an opportunity to strengthen our already strong balance sheet with low-cost capital. Coinbase intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include continued investments in product development, as well as possible investments in or acquisitions of other companies, products or technologies that Coinbase may identify in the future. The closing of the offer is subject to market and other conditions”.

On Coinbase’ s expansion plans , let’s keep in mind that the company continues to add support for trading various cryptocurrencies on both its main platform and Coinbase Pro. It recently announced the same for the Shiba Inu token (SHIB), which is now available for buy/sell orders on its trading service.

For its marketing strategy, Coinbase recently brought on board Kate Rouch, who already had years of experience supporting Facebook’s rollout in various international markets.
