NORTH AMERICA–Level brands, a brand marketing and licensing company supported by Kathy Ireland Worldwide, is planning to go public.

Level Brands is the first company with a nationally recognized female chairman emeritus (Kathy Ireland) to launch a Regulation A+ IPO with an intent to list on a national securities exchange. Level brands is currently responsible for brands including I’M1, EE1 and Beauty & Pin-Ups.

“Level Brands’ offering will enable investors the opportunity to invest in the licensed branding team that propels the Kathy Ireland Worldwide enterprise. This same creative team is the branding force behind Level Brands,” says Martin Sumichrast, chief executive officer, Level Brands. “We believe that our Regulation A+ IPO will open up the opportunity to invest in an initial public offering–previously typically the exclusive terrain of large institutional investors and the investment bank’s clients–to a wider array of investors, at the start."
