Company Attempts to Raise $15 Million to Find Bigfoot
Bigfoot Project Investments is attempting to raise $15 million. The company, which focuses on finding and documenting proof of Bigfoot, filed for a public stock offering Tuesday, Aug. 30. The company is offering 20 million shares at $0.75 per share, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
“Bigfoot Project Investments Inc., plans to establish itself as the most reliable and dependable source for materials including documentaries, physical evidence, and eye witness accounts for the purpose of documenting the evidence of the existence of Bigfoot,” the filing explains. “Our major source of revenue will be the sale of documentaries and specials that follow our progress.”
The company, based in Henderson, Nev., previously offered 30 million shares to raise $3 million. Bigfoot Project Investments has revenue of $5,440 per year and lost just over $25,000 last year. According to the filing, the company is going through cash at an annual rate of $50,000 to $500,000.
Investing to find Bigfoot is obviously a risky business. The company is cautioning potential investors that its auditors have issued a warning that the company could fold at any time, and investors may not be able to re-sell the stock they buy because there is not a current market for it. Although Bigfoot Project Investments has not been authorized to trade on any stock exchange, the filing indicates the company has been authorized to trade over the counter under the ticker BGFT.
I don't see where raising $15 million is going to help them find Bigfoot. When there is evidence found, it will probably be by someone who wasn't even looking. It's just like with ghost hunters. When people see ghosts, they're usually not looking for them.
Yes, they say things happen when you least expect them to, so I agree with you, Sam. I doubt a creature that usually hides from people would want to come out exactly when there are large teams with recording equipment and other gadgets out there looking for it anyway.
