Impact Investor FAQ's - Simcoe Green Investments

  1. 1. Investor FAQ’s October 2013
  2. 2. What is the minimum investment? Currently, the minimum investment is $50,000.
  3. 3. How is my investment secured? Once you’ve invested you are a partial owner (officially called a ‘Member’) of the Simcoe Green Investments, LLC. This LLC owns all of the properties we own so you have both an ownership stake in our owned properties as well as an equity stake in any and all current projects.
  4. 4. How will my capital be used? Your investment is used for development project costs (land acquisition, construction) as well as general business expenses of the company.
  5. 5. How are profits earned? As the company earns profits from current projects, those profits are retained in the business in order to grow the fund and give more opportunity to reinvest the proceeds in subsequent projects thus magnifying profits over the life of the fund. When profits are plowed back into the company, the company can be grown and profit from a greater base.
  6. 6. How are profits split between investors? Profits are split on a pro-rate basis based on your share of the total capital pool. For example: • Investor A has invested $200k • Investor B has invested $150k • Investor C has invested $400k • Investor D has invested $50k • You have invested $200k. • Total Money invested = $1,000,000 Your share of invested capital = 20% ($200k/$1M) thus you receive 20% of all profit payouts.
  7. 7. Does my capital go into only one project at a time? No, your capital is used on several projects at once. This both mitigates your risk among all of our projects as well as keeping it fair and equitable for all investors.
  8. 8. When do I get my principle back? You principal will be returned within six months of the close of the fund (5/18).The six month timeframe is given to allow the company time to wind up any current projects in place.
  9. 9. Do I receive dividends? Accredited investors who invest a minimum of $200,000 receive a 6.5% annual dividend that is accrued on a quarterly basis.
  10. 10. Can I get my money out earlier? There is a two year lock up period which is necessary to maximize the growth of the business.
