HYLETE, Inc. today announced that it has postponed its previously announced initial public offering. HYLETE will continue to evaluate the timing for the proposed offering as market conditions develop.
“We have decided to postpone the IPO for now,” said Ron Wilson, HYLETE Co-Founder and CEO. “This is mainly due to current unfavorable market conditions and the lack of institutional support for IPOs at this time. We want to do what is ultimately best for our investors, our community, and our company. This means waiting for the right time to go public.
With that said, we have opened up a crowdfunding opportunity utilizing Regulation CF through the StartEngine platform. We are excited to be going back to what we do best – which is crowdfunding. This will allow the entire HYLETE community, especially those interested in participating in the IPO, to be part of our growth and success, and also invest at a lower share price. Most importantly, this will allow us to communicate with full transparency again, without the limitations that were put on us during the IPO process. The ultimate goal is to still take HYLETE public in the future and offer liquidity to all of our investors.”

Forward-Looking Statements. This website and other written or oral statements made from time to time by representatives of HYLETE, Inc. (the "Company") contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements relate to future events or our future operational or financial performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about our business, business strategy, expansion, growth, products and services we may offer in the future and the timing of their development, sales and marketing strategy and capital outlook, and the consummation of the contemplated financing.
In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond our control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, inability to obtain adequate capital funding or improve our financial performance, the effectiveness of our marketing, our product quality, and our customer experience, our strategic plan and growth initiatives, an economic downturn or uncertainty in the United States, ability to compete successfully against our competitors, ability to protect our intellectual property rights, and those listed under the section entitled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in the registration statement that we have filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). If one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual events or results may vary significantly from those implied or projected by the forward-looking statements. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance. You should read the prospectus and the documents that we reference in the prospectus and have filed with the SEC as exhibits to the registration statement, of which the prospectus is a part, completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.
The forward-looking statements in this presentation represent our views as of the date of this presentation. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should therefore not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this presentation.
Risk. An investment in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should consult with your own financial and legal advisors as to the risks involved in subscribing for the securities and to determine whether the securities are a suitable investment for you. Before making a decision to purchase the securities, you should carefully read our preliminary prospectus, and carefully consider, among other matters, the information set forth under the headings “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our preliminary prospectus, as may be amended from time to time by our filings with the SEC. Additional risks and uncertainties that are not yet identified may also materially harm our business, operating results and financial condition and could result in a complete loss of your investment.
