West Coast Equity Partners’ Investment Risk Disclosure
There is no assurance that any of the companies we invest in will go public soon, if ever, nor are there any assurances that the securities of those companies will become publicly traded or unrestricted. Private investments are not appropriate for all investors. This asset class involves a high degree of risk, volatility, and illiquidity, beyond that associated with traditional asset classes. Investors should have the financial ability and willingness to accept the risks (including, among other things, the risk of loss of their entire investment and the lack of liquidity) that are characteristic of these types of investments. Investors should consider private investments a supplement, comprising a modest portion of an overall investment strategy. Investors are solely responsible and are advised, before making an investment decision with respect any WCEP investment or opinion, to review carefully the respective offering documents (including any relevant underlying agreements), and the related subscription documents regarding any investment they decide to make, and are responsible for performing such due diligence as deemed appropriate, including consulting their own legal, tax, ERISA, and financial advisers. Any information provided by WCEP and its affiliates should not form the primary basis of the investment decision. This material is based upon information WCEP believes is reliable. However, WCEP does not represent or warrant that it is accurate, complete, and/or up to date. WCEP does not accept any responsibility to update any opinion, analyses or other information contained in the material. This material is for your general information only and solely to assist you in deciding whether to proceed with a further investigation of any investment opportunity. It is not an offer or solicitation to buy or sell any security, which can be made only through the delivery of formal offering document(s) which include, among others, a confidential offering memorandum, limited liability company operating agreement, subscription agreement, and related subscription documents. Such formal offering documents contain additional information not set forth herein, including information regarding certain risks of investing, which such additional information is material to any decision to invest in any of the investment opportunity chosen by you and at your sole responsibility.
The information contained herein is based on certain assumptions, hypotheses, estimates, and anticipated outcomes which may or may not be true. This Website contains forward-looking statements, including observations about markets and industry and regulatory trends as of the publication date of this Website. Forward-looking statements may be identified by, among other things, the use of words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” or “estimates,” or the negatives of these terms, and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements reflect the Funds’ views as of such date with respect to possible future events. Actual results could differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of factors beyond the Funds’ control. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. No party has an obligation to update any of the forward-looking statements on this Website. Charts, tables, and graphs contained in this Website are not intended to be used to assist the reader in determining which securities to buy or sell or when to buy or sell securities.
Performance may fluctuate, especially over short periods. In this Website, performance results are shown the net of all fees and expenses (such as transaction costs, management, performance, administrative and any other fees and expenses applicable to any investment) and may reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings.
Statements made herein that are not attributed to a third-party source reflect the views and opinions of WCEP. No representation is made that any investor will or is likely to achieve results comparable to those shown or will make any profit or will be able to avoid incurring substantial losses. The past performance of WCEP, its principals, partners, or employees, or any of the securities referred to herein is not indicative of future returns. Performance results are generally net of applicable fees and reflect reinvestment of profits. Investment returns will fluctuate and may be volatile, especially over short time horizons.
WCEP’s investment strategy involves investments for which no public market exists. Little public information exists about many of these investments, and the investors are required to rely on their diligence efforts to obtain adequate information to evaluate the potential risks and returns involved in these investments. Therefore, the greater risk that the investors may invest on the basis of incomplete or inaccurate information may adversely affect the investment performance, which could impact both initial and ultimate valuations. This could subject the investors to greater risk than investments in established publicly traded companies or businesses and negatively affect the investment returns.
WCEP and GT Securities may not be able to secure shares in some or all of the securities that have been targeted for purchase. If the shares are not accessible, WCEP and GT Securities will not be able to proceed with the investment.
There is no assurance that the diligence efforts will result in an investment being successful. There is no guarantee that WCEP will be successful in achieving the investment objectives. An investment in any of the opportunities contains risks, including the risk of complete loss. Any performance reflected herein is estimated, is based on incomplete information and is subject to change. Actual results, when available, may differ. Given the nature and number of companies underlying these securities, this type of investments should be considered a more volatile and risky investment.
Any trademarks or business names in this Website are included solely for informational purposes and, in certain cases, as examples of companies in the asset class in which WCEP and GT Securities and/or its affiliates, representatives, managers, members or principals may invest, and any such trademarks and business names are owned by their respective trademark owners.
