SharesPost Private Company Share Prices Now on Bloomberg

New level of transparency comes to the private capital markets

SAN BRUNO, Calif.--()--SharesPost announced today that its real-time pricing for US-based privately-held companies is now available on the Bloomberg Professional service. For the first time, Bloomberg subscribers will be able to access historical data on privately-held companies, including prices paid and trending graphs.

The market for investing in privately-owned companies is growing rapidly, but access to price information on the underlying assets is restricted. As an online market-place for investments in privately-held companies, SharesPost serves a network of 81,000 investors and existing shareholders of privately-owned companies.

“SharesPost is dedicated to delivering access to information on the best private companies to investors, and to helping private companies get access to growth capital they need," said David Weir, Chief Executive Officer at SharesPost. "Transparency is a critical component to opening up the private capital market, so there is no better way to make the secondary market more visible, accessible and transparent than to be on the Bloomberg Professional service, which reaches more than 310,000 investors globally."

“Investors have a keen interest in private companies, especially when consumer-technology companies, like Facebook, receive multi-billion dollar valuations," said Michael Bradley, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager at Bradley & Company. “One part of the natural evolution of this market is being able to see this data on the Bloomberg Professional service."

Bloomberg Professional service subscribers can visit {EIS SHPO<GO>} for more information or {SECF SHARESPOST<GO>} for the list of companies on SharesPost. More information about this service is also available online at www.sharespost.com/bloomberg.
