There are a number of risks you should be aware of before investing.
Your capital is at risk if you invest in the Company. Young, growth businesses have a high failure rate. You must assume that many of young, growth businesses in which you invest are likely to experience difficulties and in some cases will become insolvent. As a result you may lose all of your capital.
Although the Company does not provide any advice or recommendations in relation to investments it is typically considered prudent for investors to consider balancing their risk with safer, more liquid investments.
Shares in the Company are extremely illiquid – meaning that there are very few opportunities to buy and sell them. Once you’ve bought shares in the Company, it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to sell them through a secondary marketplace. In other words, it is likely that you would have to hold on to them until there is a strategic exit – like a share buy-back, management buy-out or a complete sale of the Company.
Rarity of dividends
The Company does not pay any dividends to shareholders. That means you are unlikely to receive any income from your shares. You will need to wait until a successful exit before receiving any gains.
Shares in the Company are subject to dilution. If the Company wants to raise more capital at a later date, it will probably issue new shares to new investors, thereby reducing the percentage that you own. Your investment could also be diluted as a result of options being granted to employees of, service providers to or certain other parties connected with, the Company.
Tax treatment of shares
Tax reliefs are not guaranteed. They depend on the Company maintaining their qualifying status, and may be withdrawn at any time by HM Revenue & Customs. In addition, the tax treatment of EIS and SEIS schemes in the future depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in future.
Past and forecast performance
If you’re investing in the Company you should not assume that past performance is a reliable indicator of future performance. By the same token you should not assume that the Company’s forecasts for future sales are reliable or likely to happen.
