  2. 2. The Colonial Capital Group Secured Fixed Rate Bond (SHB) launched in February 2014 with the express objective of re-housing up to 2,000 families in the Chicago area. Over the 3 year period an investor will receive returns equal to 12% per annum, paid every 6 months. The SHB is a Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) as our main objective is to help provide safe, clean and decent housing to either the very low or low-income families in the Chicago area. On each sale made we also donate $50 to Kiva which helps to fight worldwide poverty. More information can be found about this at The US housing market has been on a downward path since it reached an all-time high in late 2006 early 2007. However, after plummeting over 50% in some areas the consensus is we may have finally found a bottom to the market. The graph below (Figure 1) shows that the vast majority of the drop in prices occurred between mid-2006 and early 2009.

  3. 3. Whilst the property prices have dropped, foreclosures have sky rocketed forcing many thousands out of their homes. This in turn has increased the demand for good rental properties and this has been further compounded by the banks in the US keeping a very tight rein on mortgage finance. This restriction of credit is forcing not just those that have lost their homes into the rented sector but also first time buyers. This “perfect storm” has created an excellent opportunity for the astute property investor in the US housing market. The Colonial Capital Group plc 3 year US Social Housing Bond has been designed to allow both private and institutional investors an opportunity to benefit from these circumstances with returns of 12% per annum. This is asset backed and secured upon the shares of Colonial Capital LLC. The bonds benefit from a first ranking charge over the shares in Colonial Capital Property LLC, the company in the US that holds all of the properties funded by the bonds. In the event of non- payment, the bondholders would have the ability to enforce their security, take control of Colonial Capital Property LLC and realise the value of its property portfolio subject to the prior claims of any trade creditors of Colonial Capital Property LLC. More details can be found in the Information Memorandum (IM).

  4. 4. 3 Year Social Housing Bond Started in Chicago in 2012 Colonial Capital LLC acquires distressed property, typically 2-4 unit multi dwelling houses in both West and South Chicago. After a comprehensive refurbishment process we let these properties to US families under the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, formerly known as Section 8. This allows the company to achieve high rental yields that are paid and underwritten by the US Government. In some cases the company may sell a proportion of its portfolio to help accelerate growth and use leverage where appropriate. There is a minimum initial investment of £10,000 and subsequent purchases at £1,000. The annual returns are 12% of the sum invested which is paid bi-annually. The start date for the annual returns is exactly 6 months after the final date of subscription. This allows for administration, property acquisition, refurbishment and rental. The final redemption payment is paid after 3 years. Social Housing Program Overview 8 9
  5. 5. The table below shows the Housing & Urban Development* (HUD) department’s agreed rent payable in Chicago for 2014. One-Bedroom Two-Bedroom Three-Bedroom Four-Bedroom $826 $979 $1,248 $1,455 We can acquire a 2 unit property for as little as $30,000 - $35,000 and refurbish it for approximately another $30,000. A 2 unit property with one 2 bed and one 3 bed apartment will produce a rental income of $26,364 per annum. If we take an acquisition and refurbishment cost of $65,000 we will achieve an un-leveraged yield of 40.5%. Another option is to acquire, refurbish and sell. The above example could possibly be sold for $100,000 and still produce an un-leveraged yield of 26.4% per annum for a buy to let investor.** The figures achieved are even better on a 3 unit dwelling. In this example the property has one 2 bed and two 3 bed apartments. A typical acquisition and refurbish cost would be approximately $80,000. The rental income generated by this property would be $41,700. This would provide an un-leveraged yield of 52.1% or an un-leveraged profit of $86,800 if we sold at a cap rate of 25%. The sale of just one of these 3 apartment properties generates enough cash to cover all the Bond interest payments and the final redemption payment (based on an investment of $80,000, see below.) Rental Income as per FMR $41,700 Redemption Payment @ 100% $80,000 Sale Proceeds $166,800 Total Repaid to Bondholder $108,800 Bond Investment $80,000 Bond Interest @ 12% per annum $9,600 Property Type: 3 Apartments 8 Beds Total Bond Interest Payable $28,800 Cap Rate 25% All of the returns shown above are un-leveraged. The Fair Market Rent (FMR) is set by the Housing & Urban Development department and is paid direct to either the investor or the investor’s agent, thus guaranteeing a certain level of rental income. All funds invested are secured against the shares of Colonial Capital LLC, which in turn owns the entire property portfolio. * The HUD is a US Governmental Department ** Investors who wish to buy property outright should contact us direct We focus on multi-unit dwellings which contain between 2 – 4 apartments. All properties are bought direct from US banks or via Foreclosure sales and are refurbished to a high standard, which includes new kitchens, bathrooms, windows and wooden floors. Yields achieved are sufficient to deliver the necessary dividend returns to the Bond investors whilst allowing the company to continue to grow. Throughout the three year term, we will actively manage each property to maximise the returns. This will include a mixed strategy of buy & hold, buy & sell at the most appropriate times. We expect to undertake more property dealing in the first 18 months whilst prices are particularly low, which will help to accelerate growth before switching to a longer holding strategy as the redemption dates approach.

  6. 6. As more people are forced to become renters, the demand for rental property increases and this creates upward pressure on rental prices as can be seen in the graph below. 1 People who have suffered from a foreclosure still need somewhere to live and therefore their only option is to rent. 2 First time buyers cannot get a mortgage to buy a property so they are forced to rent instead. 3 Voluntary Default, whereby a regular borrower hands back their keys because they are in a negative equity position and they decide they would be better off renting. There has been a steady and inexorable rise in the price of rental income across the US since way back in 1983. The home ownership level has fallen by approximately 6 million homes since 2007 Strong Rental Cashflow 1970 62 64 66 68 70 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 2000 2005 2010 Home Ownership Rate: United States Source: Cesus Bureau/Haver Analytics 1970 1972 1974 1976 1978 1980 1982 1986 1984 1988 1990 1992 1994 1996 1998 2000 2002 2004 2006 2008 2010 2012 2014 $0 $25,000 $50,000 $75,000 $100,000 $125,000 $150,000 $175,000 $200,000 $225,000 $250,000 $275,000 $300,000 $325,000 United States - House Prices Inflation-adjusted houses prices Nominal house prices Inflation-adjusted pre-bubble trend Nominal pre-bubble trend 12 13
  7. 7. The Housing Choice Voucher program is the US Federal Government’s major program for assisting very low and low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments. The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidised housing projects. Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs). The PHAs receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program. A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety, as determined by the PHA. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidised by the program. Under certain circumstances if authorised by the PHA, a family may use its voucher to purchase a modest home. The Rent Subsidy The PHA calculates the maximum amount of housing assistance allowable. The maximum housing assistance is generally the lesser of the payment standard minus 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income or the gross rent for the unit minus 30% of monthly adjusted income. All rental payments are paid direct from the US Government department HUD into our managing agent’s bank account before being passed directly to Colonial Capital LLC.

  8. 8. The Fair Market Rent is the 40th percentile of gross rents for typical, non-substandard rental units occupied by recent movers in a local housing market. 40th percentile: The 40th percentile is that point in a distribution of numbers at which 40% of the numbers are less than or equal to it and 60% of the numbers are greater than or equal to it. In the set of numbers {$395, $458, $486, $517, $675}, $458 would be the 40th percentile. The 40th percentile is similar in concept to a median; the median is the 50th percentile. Gross rents: Gross rent is the sum of the rent paid to the owner plus any utility costs incurred by the tenant. Utilities include electricity, gas, water and sewer and trash removal services but not telephone services. If the owner pays for all utilities then gross rent equals the rent paid to the owner. One Strike Policy Unlike the UK, where unruly tenants seem to repeatedly get re-housed, this does not happen in the US under the HCV program thus protecting our investment. If the tenants do not pass any of the routine inspections or fail to pay just one monthly rent, they are given 30 days to rectify the problem and if this isn’t done they can be evicted. Any tenant evicted from the HCV Section 8 home cannot get back into the scheme anywhere in the US. Under the scheme the HCV Section 8 payments can cover from 70% up to 100% of the tenant’s rent. Obviously tenants try hard to not lose this support thus ensuring the property remains in good condition and in most cases treating it as if it were their own.
