Prospective investors should note that the Fund is an ‘alternative investment fund’ (or “AIF”) for the purposes of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (2011/61/EU) (“AIFMD”). The Manager is an alternative investment fund manager (“AIFM”) for the purposes of AIFMD. Prospective investors are advised that the Manager is authorised by the FCA as a small authorised UK Alternative Investment Fund Manager. Prospective investors’ attention is drawn to the fact that the Manager is exempted from the AIFMD pursuant to article 3 (2) (a) of the AIFMD (the so-called “de minimis exemption”). Therefore, the prospective investors shall not benefit from any rights from the AIFMD, nor will the Fund Manager comply with any obligation thereunder, except to the extent provided under article 3 (2) of the AIFMD. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Manager may in the future be required (or elect) to comply with AIFMD, in which case the information regarding the Manager’s (as applicable) compliance with AIFMD will be made available to investors. Nothing herein should be construed as an offer or solicitation or as marketing of any AIF in the EEA save in circumstances where such an AIF is permitted to be marketed in accordance with AIFMD (and the laws and regulations implementing AIFMD in any EEA member state). LN has taken all reasonable care to ensure that all the facts stated are true and accurate in all material respects and that there are no other material facts, or opinions, which have been omitted, which would make any part of this promotion misleading.
However, where information has been obtained from third party sources, LN cannot accept responsibility for the completeness or accuracy of that information and potential investors must form their own opinion as to the reliance they place on that information. You will need and be expected to make your own independent assessment of an investment in the Fund and to rely on your own judgment (or that of your independent financial adviser) in respect of any investments you may make through the Fund and the legal, regulatory, tax and investment consequences and risks of so doing.
Investing through the Fund may expose an investor to a significant risk of losing all of the property or other assets invested. There are significant other risks associated with an investment in early-stage companies through the Fund which are set out below.
It is important to note that amounts invested in Portfolio Companies through the Fund will be committed to investments which may be of a long term and illiquid nature. Further, neither the Fund, nor the Portfolio Companies in which the Investor invests through the Fund, may at any time be quoted on any recognised or designated investment exchange and, accordingly, there may not be an established or ready market in participations in the Fund nor the underlying investments made through it. Investments made through the Fund will therefore not be easily realisable.
Any individual who is in any doubt about investing in or through the Fund should consult an FCA authorised person specialising in advising on participation in EIS funds and/or an appropriately qualified tax adviser.
The information refers to the current laws concerning Tax Relief, IHT relief and CGT deferral relief. These levels and bases of relief may be subject to change. The tax reliefs referred to in this document are those currently available to certain persons and their value depends on individual circumstances.
Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and may not necessarily be repeated. You should be aware that share values and income from them may go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you originally invested.
Neither the Fund nor its interests have been registered under the US Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or political sub-division of the United States and, because the interests will be offered only to a limited number of accredited investors, it is anticipated that they will be exempt from the registration provisions of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("US Securities Act") pursuant to (i) section 4(a)(2) of the US Securities Act and Regulation 506 of US Regulation D under the US Securities Act or (ii) US Regulation S under the US Securities Act. Pontaq is not currently registered as an investment adviser under the United States Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended ("US Advisers Act") in reliance of an exemption from registration thereof . Pontaq may register under the US Investment Advisers Act in the future as required by law or if otherwise deemed advisable by such parties in their sole and absolute discretion. The Fund will not be registered as an investment company under the United States Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended ("US Investment Company Act") in reliance upon the exclusion provided under Section 3(c)(1)of the US Investment Company Act. Accordingly, investors in the Fund will not have the benefit of any protections afforded to registered investment companies under the US Investment Company Act. Accordingly and importantly, investors should have the financial ability and willingness to accept the risks that are characteristic of an investment in the Fund (including, amongst other things, the risk of loss of their entire investment and lack of liquidity in the interests) and should consult their financial advisers regarding the appropriateness of making an investment in the Fund.
