John & I invested in BrewDog back in their very first crowd funding round in 2009, and are very pleased that it has become one of the fastest growing companies in the UK.
… They also make great beer!
We are Shareholders #89, and there are now over 106,000 investors.
BrewDog closed their 5th Equity raise in the UK in October 2018, and raised over £26M, selling shares at £23.75 each.
They have recently launched their 6th share issue at £25.00 with a minimum purchase of only one share.

in early 2018 we sold a small number of our own shares to realise cash from growth, and also sold shares on behalf of other early investors.
We have now sold over 34,000 shares.
BrewDog held a Trading Day event on 31/01/2019, through Asset Match and The Share Centre.
The price settled at £15.00 per share and 138,364 were traded.
After charges, sellers received a maximum of £14.55 per share.
Buyers paid 0.5% SDRT (the electronic equivalent of Stamp Duty), 3% commission, and an additional £25.00 to transfer shares.
So if you bought 10 shares the buying price worked out at £19.58 per share.
For 100 shares, it would have cost £15.78
For 1,000 shares £15.55
This was an excellent outcome, giving a healthy profit for all investors who bought in before 2016. Private Equity is a long term investment, and any gains in less than 5 years are highly unusual. BrewDog continues to buck this trend in a good way!
