Below are certain risks associated with this investment that should be carefully reviewed prior to any investment in this opportunity:
Forward-Looking Statements: Investors should not rely on any forward-looking statements made regarding this opportunity, because such statements are inherently uncertain and involve risks. We use words such as “anticipated,” “projected,” “forecasted,” “estimated,” “prospective,” “believes,” “expects,” "plans,” “future,” “intends,” “should,” “can,” “could,” “might,” “potential,” “continue,” “may,” “will,” and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements. Similarly, the financial forecasts contained herein and in any other offering materials are based on numerous assumptions. Although these assumptions are believed to be reasonable, they are all subject to uncertainty. Non-Transferability of Notes: The transferability of the Company's Notes is restricted both by the subscription agreement for that entity and by U.S. federal and state securities laws. In general, investors will not be able to sell or transfer the Notes. There is also no public market for the Notes and none is expected to be available in the future. Moreover, although there is a defined redemption date for the preferred equity investment in the Fund, an extension option may be exercised and in any event, there can be no assurance that the investment will be liquidated at or promptly after such maturity date (as it may be extended). Persons should not invest if they require any of their investment to be liquid. This is particularly important for persons of retirement age, who should plan carefully to assure that their assets last throughout retirement.
Real Estate Market Risk: Investments related to real estate are subject to market valuation risks that may be caused by changing economic and local market conditions such as local real estate market conditions, prevailing interest rates, the rate of unemployment, the level of consumer confidence, the value of the U.S. dollar, energy prices, changes in consumer spending, the number of personal bankruptcies, disruptions in the credit markets and other factors. Such conditions are beyond the control of the Company and of the Fund. Real estate markets are affected by many factors, such as general economic conditions, supply and demand for real estate investments, interest rates, the availability of financing, and other factors, all of which are beyond the control of both the Company and the Fund.
Borrower Credit Risk: The Company’s obligation to make payments on a Note will not be guaranteed for the length of the term corresponding to the borrower’s loan. The Company (and thus investors) will be relying on the borrower for the execution of its business plan in a way that enables the sponsor to repay the principal of the corresponding borrower loan. The borrower may not have a significant record of performance and may be unable to sell or refinance the underlying property in a way that enables the borrower to fulfill its obligations under the corresponding borrower loan. The borrower loan is being made with respect to a property that does not generally meet the financing criteria for conventional mortgages from institutional sources. Credit risk is inherent in the mortgage lending industry, and there can be no assurance that the creditworthiness of the borrower will be sufficient to assure the full repayment of the underlying borrower loan. The Company does not guarantee payment of the Notes or the corresponding borrower loan, and the Notes are not obligations of our borrower.
