FUNDERSMART SPECIFIC TERMSFundersMart (herein “FundersMart,” the “Fundersmart Platform,” or the “Fundersmart Service”) is an Capital Marketplace through which business owners connect with investors online to raise capital for their businesses.
FundersMart is designed for, and restricted to use by, companies (herein “Issuers”) and investors (specifically, accredited investors in the US, sophisticated investors from the UK, and other investors who are permitted through their respective legal systems to buy securities from privately held companies; herein “Investors”; together with Issuers, “Users” or “You”). Society3 is neither an exchange nor a dealer broker. It does not purchase, negotiate, value or trade securities in behalf of any third party. However Society3 is facilitating the process of making connections with other investors. A simple list with offerings from investors is provided where any authorized investor can offer a position or express interest in buying a specific security. Negotiation and payments are made directly between the parties outside the FundersMart platform.
Orders are processed directly between the Users. Society3 does not gain any commission from such order. Issuer only pay a nominal subscription fee to use the Platform for conducting such business.
During initial issuance, the issuer determines the price and justifies this in the prospectus, or form D. An investor may request to buy shares from the issuer. The issuer can accept or reject the request. If the issuer accepts a request, the investor must electronically sign an investor agreement and make payment within 48 hours. In the event that the deadline to complete the transaction passes, the system automatically voids the transaction and there are no further obligations owed by the Users.
From time to time, Society3 may state that users can “Exit Anytime” in FundersMart. “Exit Anytime,” as used by Society3 in FundersMart, shall mean that users may sell the restricted stock they have purchased through the FundersMart platform. However, Society3 requires that such sales be made in strict adherence to the regulations on restricted stock sales, as set forth by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the State in which the sale occurs. By using the FundersMart platform, User acknowledges the existence of all applicable regulations that apply to the sale of restricted stock, and agrees to adhere to those regulations strictly. For example, SEC Rule 144 applies the following limitations, among others, to the sale of restricted stock to the public: if the Company is a “Reporting Company” with the Securities & Exchange Commission, holders of stock in that Company can sell their shares, or “Exit Anytime,” no earlier than six months from the date the stock was bought and fully paid for; if the Company is not a “Reporting Company” with the Securities & Exchange Commission, holders of stock in the Company can sell their shares, or “Exit Anytime,” no earlier than twelve (12) months from the date the stock was bought and fully paid for. This representation is not intended in any way to provide complete analysis of SEC Rule 144, but is intended to illustrate the existence of regulations that apply to the sale of restricted securities. For further information on SEC Rule 144, and other existing applicable regulations, Society3 encourages Users to consult www.sec.gov.
User acknowledges that he may not qualify to participate on the FundersMart Service. User eligibility varies by jurisdiction.
Offerings in the US are available to both “Accredited Investors” as well as unaccredited investors, though participation is substantially limited for unaccredited investors. Proof of accreditation must be presented during the registration process. Accredited Investors are natural persons who have a net worth of over $1 million (exclusive of residence) or an annual income above $200,000.00 individually ($300,000.00, if married). Unaccredited investors can only participate in purchases up to an amount equal to the greater of either 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth.
Investor Registrants must provide a complete profile of personally identifying information, as well as submit a self-assessment of financial sophistication. Following registration and positive verification by Society3, Society3 grants Investor access to certain content provided by issuers. Investors have the opportunity to be not listed within the platform.
Issuer Registrants must also provide all information required to qualify for listing on the Platform. Following registration and positive verification by Society3, Society3 grants the Issuer the right to publish its private placement on the Society3 platform. Society3 informs all registered investors and displays the contents of the private placement on the platform in accordance with applicable law. The scope and duration of the publication shall be limited by all laws, regulations and court orders applicable. Active promotion of the Private Placement within the Society3 FundersMart platform is possible as the platform is able to restrict solicitations to authorized investors only.
Issuer has access to FundersMart to enter company data, Prospectus, number of shares, prices and other necessary listing information. The Issuer agrees and confirms to provide all necessary information required under applicable law. To unlock an issuer the legal representative of the company must be registered with their personal data and will be approved by a qualified Society3 representative. Issuers confirm that they are authorized to offer the respective number of shares.
Issuer agrees to engage only with Investors who are enabled for the respective geography they are targeting. The marketplace allows issuer to select those geographies but also requires the corresponding information in order to be enabled. Targeting US Investors require the completion and filing of FORM D, which is mandatory to be enabled for the US market on FundersMart. All data obtained during listing is owned by the Issuer. Companies issuing stock through FundersMart will elect a 506 exemption (either 506b or 506c) from Regulation D, which requires that all sales of securities be registered with the Securities & Exchange Commission. Nevertheless, each Company must file a FORM D filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, at which time they will elect a 506 exemption. Though the Company will be exempted under 506 from registration of the stock offering and sale with the SEC, the Company will nevertheless be subject to various obligations and limitations on its sales and offering rights under each 506 exemption. Society3 requires that the Company adhere strictly to the applicable obligations and limitations in the 506 exemption that applies to it.
POTENTIAL FOR LOSSIn connection with the purchase of equity through the FundersMart Platform, Investors represent to Society3 as follows:
- I can protect my own interests. I can properly evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the shares and can protect my own interests in this regard, whether by reason of my own business and financial expertise, the business and financial expertise of certain professional advisers unaffiliated with the Issuer or Society3 with whom I have consulted, or my preexisting business or personal relationship with the Issuer or any of its officers, directors or controlling persons.
- I recognize my economic risk. I realize that the purchase of shares involves a high degree of risk, and that the Issuer’s future prospects are uncertain. I am able to hold the shares indefinitely if required, and am able to bear the loss of my entire investment in the shares.
- I am informed about the Issuer. I am sufficiently aware of the Issuer’s business affairs and financial condition to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the shares. I have had an opportunity to discuss the plans, operations and financial condition of the Issuer with its officers, directors or controlling persons, and have received all information I deem appropriate for assessing the risk of an investment in the shares.
- I am familiar with Rule 144. I am familiar with Rule 144 adopted under the Securities Act, which in some circumstances permits limited public resales of “restricted securities” like the shares acquired from an issuer in a non-public offering. I understand that my ability to sell the shares under Rule 144 in the future is uncertain, and may depend upon, among other things: (i) the availability of certain current public information about the Company; (ii) the resale occurring more than a specified period after my purchase and full payment (within the meaning of Rule 144) for the shares; and (iii) if I am an affiliate of the Company (A) the sale being made in an unsolicited “broker’s transaction”, transactions directly with a market maker or riskless principal transactions, as those terms are defined under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (B) the amount of shares being sold during any three-month period not exceeding the specified limitations stated in Rule 144, and (C) timely filing of a notice of proposed sale on Form 144, if applicable.
- I know that Rule 144 may never be available. I understand that the requirements of Rule 144 may never be met, and that the shares may never be saleable under the rule. I further understand that at the time I wish to sell the shares, there may be no public market for the Company’s stock upon which to make such a sale, or the current public information requirements of Rule 144 may not be satisfied, either of which may preclude me from selling the shares under Rule 144 even if the relevant holding period had been satisfied.
- I know that I am subject to further restrictions on resale. I understand that in the event Rule 144 is not available to me, any future proposed sale of any of the shares by me will not be possible without prior registration under the Securities Act, compliance with some other registration exemption (which may or may not be available), or each of the following: (i) my written notice to the Company containing detailed information regarding the proposed sale, (ii) my providing an opinion of my counsel to the effect that such sale will not require registration, and (iii) the Company notifying me in writing that its counsel concurs in such opinion. I understand that neither the Company nor its counsel is obligated to provide me with any such opinion. I understand that although Rule 144 is not exclusive, the Staff of the SEC has stated that persons proposing to sell private placement securities other than in a registered offering or pursuant to Rule 144 will have a substantial burden of proof in establishing that an exemption from registration is available for such offers or sales, and that such persons and their respective brokers who participate in such transactions do so at their own risk.
- I know that I may have tax liability due to the uncertain value of the shares. I understand that the board of directors believes its valuation of the shares represents a fair appraisal of their worth, but that it remains possible that, with the benefit of hindsight, the Internal Revenue Service may successfully assert that the value of the shares on the date of my purchase is substantially greater than the board of directors’ appraisal. I understand that any additional value ascribed to the shares by such an IRS determination will constitute ordinary income to me as of the purchase date, and that any additional taxes and interest due as a result will be my sole responsibility payable only by me, and that the Company need not and will not reimburse me for that tax liability.
- No “bad actor” disqualification events. Neither I nor any person that would be deemed a beneficial owner of the shares (in accordance with Rule 506(d) of the Securities Act) is subject to any of the “bad actor” disqualifications described in Rule 506(d)(1)(i) through (viii) under the Securities Act, except as set forth in Rule 506(d)(2)(ii) or (iii) or (d)(3) under the Securities Act and disclosed, reasonably in advance of the purchase or acquisition of the shares, in writing in reasonable detail to the Company.
