Provides VIN Members Early Liquidity Options
FAYETTEVILLE, AR. DECEMBER 14, 2020- The VIC Investor Network (“VIN”) makes investments into companies based on technologies that can have substantial impact on human health and well-being. A newly introduced feature of the VIC Investor Network is a Secondary Market that provides VIN Standard Members early liquidity options via sales of shares to other VIN members (learn more about VIN by registering for any of the upcoming webinars: VIN Webinar Registration.)
Every investment opportunity presented to VIN members is in a company based on an innovative technology with large commercial opportunity that has been thoroughly vetted by an experienced, successful team, following a proven business model. Each investment is offered to VIN members at an attractive investment valuation. VIN co-invests alongside VIC Technology Venture Development, which provides additional protection to VIN members compared to investing in a typical angel investor network.
The new Secondary Market provides a simple, low-overhead means for VIN Standard Members to offer their shares from VIN investments they have made for sale to other VIN members. Any VIN Standard Member may offer any portion or all of their investments for sale on the VIN Secondary Market. The VIN member sets the sale price. Other VIN members may then either select to purchase the offered shares or may make a counter-offer via the website. VIC Technology Venture Development provides regular guidance on the current valuations for portfolio companies, allowing investors to tailor their offers properly.
VIN places all individual member investments into separate holding companies for each new investment round in each VIC portfolio company being invested in. The holding companies are set up to facilitate the exchange of shares from one VIN member to another. Thus, the exchange of shares from a VIN Secondary Market transaction occurs solely within the VIN holding company and not within the given VIC portfolio company. This greatly simplifies the overall process and keeps transaction costs extremely low.
The VIC Investor Network provides important advantages for investors interested in placing investments in high-impact, high-upside companies. The addition of the VIN Secondary Market is another compelling feature of VIN membership.
