Investing in an early-stage and growth-focused business like Strictly Money can be very rewarding, but it involves a number of risks and challenges. This executive summary and financial reports are unaudited and may be inaccurate. You should not rely entirely upon the information provided below to make any further investment in Strictly Money. If you choose to invest further in the business we’d like you to be aware of and accept the following important considerations:
Many early-stage businesses and growth-focused businesses fail, and if you invest in such a business you could lose all of your invested capital and you may not see any return or profit. You should not invest more money in these types of businesses than you can afford to lose without altering your standard of living. Almost all of these types of investments will be highly illiquid and it is very unlikely that there will be a liquid secondary market for the shares of the business. This means you should assume that you will be unlikely to be able to sell your shares until and unless the business floats on a stock exchange or
is bought by another company.
Even for a successful business, a flotation or purchase is unlikely to occur for a number of years from the time you make your investment. For businesses for which secondary market opportunities are available it can be difficult to find a buyer or seller, and investors should not assume that an early exit will be available just because a secondary market exists.
Businesses of this type rarely pay dividends. This means that you are unlikely to see any return of capital or profit until you are able to sell your shares. Even for a successful business, this is unlikely to occur for a number of years from the time you make your investment.
Any investment you make in this type of business is likely to be subject to dilution. This means that if the business raises additional capital at a later date, it will issue new shares to the new investors, and the percentage of the business that you own will decline.
These new shares may also have certain preferential rights to dividends, sale proceeds and other matters, and the exercise of these rights may work to your disadvantage. Shares that offer preemption rights give you the right to purchase new shares alongside future investors.
Investments of this nature carry risks to your capital. Please Invest Aware.
