There is even a possibility that investors “could lose all or part of their investment.


  • Our shares are not listed on an exchange or quoted through a quotation system, and will not be for the foreseeable future, if ever. Therefore, if stockholders purchase shares in this offering, it is unlikely that they will be able to sell them and, if they are able to do so, it is unlikely that they will receive a full return of their invested capital.
  • We are not obligated to complete a liquidity event by a specified date; therefore, it will be difficult for an investor to sell his or her shares.
  • Investors will not know the purchase price per share at the time they submit their subscription agreements and could receive fewer shares of common stock than anticipated if our board of directors determines to increase the offering price to comply with the requirement that we avoid selling shares at an offering price below our net asset value per share.”
