AVIN Frequently Asked Questions

What is the typical investment size for an investor?

While each transaction may vary, each investor may typically invest $25,000 to $500,000 per transaction. The amount of investment for each offering will typically depend on the number of investors participating, and the aggregate amount being raised in the offering.

On which industries will potential investments primarily focus?

Ackrell Capital sees potential transactions in a broad range of industries and takes an opportunistic approach to providing investment opportunities. The investment opportunities offered to AVIN investors are likely to be initially from the following industries: clean technology, digital media, consumer and ecommerce.

What types of securities will be available for investment?

Ackrell Capital assists companies in raising equity and debt capital at every stage in a company's life – from seed financing to leveraged buyouts.

Do venture or other private equity firms participate in the transactions?

Ackrell Capital attempts to identify and offer to our investors those transactions in which there is or will be participation from leading venture or other private equity firms. For later stage transactions, venture or other private equity firms typically will be existing investors in the company raising capital, and/or will be leading or investing in the new round of financing. For seed financings, it is more likely for the investors to be individual, and not institutional, investors.

What information about an investment opportunity will be made available to AVIN members?

Ackrell Capital will typically provide an investment memorandum which describes the investment opportunity and the transaction terms.

How will AVIN members learn about new investment opportunities?

Ackrell Capital will notify eligible AVIN members of new investment opportunities via an email communication.

What exit strategies do you anticipate for private investments?

For equity securities, potential exits may include a sale or an IPO. For debt securities, investors will typically be entitled to receive a current coupon plus the repayment of principal. Ackrell Capital attempts to structure transactions to anticipate exit events. Despite these efforts, private investments are inherently risky and may offer limited liquidity.

Who is eligible to invest?

Private investments are inherently risky and are not subject to SEC registration and reporting requirements. Consequently, the investments are limited to investors who qualify as an Accredited Investor or a Qualified Purchaser.

How does the investment allocation process work?

If the demand for an offering is greater than the proposed offering amount, Ackrell Capital will allocate the offering among investors by considering whether an investor is a Qualified Purchaser and the historical relationship of the investor with the firm. It is not the policy of Ackrell Capital to allocate investment opportunities on a first-come, first-served basis. No person will be accepted as a purchaser prior to the closing of an offering. Ackrell Capital reserves the right to reject any Offer to Buy, in whole or in part, or to allot any prospective purchaser a smaller allocation than that requested by such prospective purchaser. Any representation to the contrary is unauthorized and may not be relied upon.
