Risk of Investment

Our process helps provide you with organized, vetted information on which to make informed investment decisions, however investing in small businesses involves significant risk.

Investments offered under private placements. When considering private placement investments, you need to be informed of the various risks, including, but not limited to:

  • You are investing in speculative securities and your investment may lose value.

The private placements you are investing in on Global Domination are usually small businesses and may be early-stage businesses that are looking to launch a product or service. Many times, they do not have a proven track record. You need to be prepared to bear the economic risk of any investment that you make in private placements.

  • Your investment may be illiquid.

By investing in private placements you are often required to hold on to the security for at least one year before you can sell it. At that time, there might not be an investor that is interested in your security so you might not be able to sell. There is no secondary market for these securities. For equity or other securities with no termination date, there is increased illiquidity risk.

  • Private businesses are not required to report on their financial status quarterly like public companies.

The businesses that we place on the website have agreed by contract with Global Domination to update their investors with how the company is performing on a quarterly basis, but there is no guarantee that they will. Global Domination will NOT be policing these businesses to ensure they are providing updates. The financial information presented by businesses has likely not been reviewed or audited by any accounting firm.

  • Private businesses are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as a public company.

When a company goes public they are required to disclose specific information as required by law. Private businesses are not required to meet these restrictions. The financial information presented by businesses has likely not been reviewed or audited by any accounting firm.

  • Private placements may involve complex tax structures.

Private placements can involve complex tax structures in different types of corporate entities.

  • Private placements often charge high fees.

It is important to review the transaction fees outlined in the offering materials before investing.

The offering materials describe the various risks and conflicts of interest relating to an investment in the specific offering and to its operations. You should read the offering materials carefully to determine whether an investment is suitable for you in light of, among other things, your financial situation, need for liquidity, tax situation, risk tolerance and your other investments.

The past performance of any investment is not necessarily indicative of future results. You should only commit risk capital to an investment which means money that you can lose. Private placement investments are not for everyone and entail risks that are different from more traditional investments. We do not (and can’t) make any guarantees of a return or any guarantees that a return will be achieved. You should obtain investment and tax advice from your advisors before deciding to invest.

Please also be aware of the risks associated with investing in equity securities and revenue share securities

An investment in early stage businesses involves a high degree of risk, and should be regarded as speculative. Prospective purchasers should consider carefully the risk factors outlined here, among others, in addition to the other information presented in the Offering Materials for each offering, in evaluating the Company and its business. This does not purport to be an exhaustive list of risks associated with investing in small and early stage businesses, or any specific security type. The fact that a risk is listed under a certain security type, does not mean that risk would not exist under a separate security type.

You need to be informed of the various risks, including, but not limited to:

  • You are investing in speculative securities and your investment may lose value.

The businesses you are investing in are usually small businesses and may be early-stage businesses that are looking to launch a product or service. Many times, they do not have a proven track record. You need to be prepared to bear the economic risk of any investment, including the possibility of losing your entire investment.

  • Your investment may be illiquid.

By investing in a Crowd-funding offering, you are prohibited from selling or otherwise transferring the security you invest in for a minimum of 12 months following the closing of the offering, except in limited circumstances. At that time, there might not be an investor that is interested in your security so you might not be able to sell. There is no secondary market for these securities. For equity or other securities with no termination date, there is increased illiquidity risk.

  • Private businesses are not required to report on their financial status quarterly like public companies.

The businesses that we place on the website have agreed by contract with Global Domination to update their investors with how the company is performing on a quarterly basis, but there is no guarantee that they will.

There is no guarantee that the business will maintain its relationship with Global Domination after the offering has been conducted.

  • Private businesses are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as a public company.

When a company goes public they are required to disclose specific information by law. Private businesses are not required to meet these restrictions. The financial information presented by businesses may or may not have been reviewed or audited by any accounting firm.

  • The amount you are allowed to invest will be limited.

The aggregate amount an investor may invest in Regulation Crowd-funding offerings during any 12-month period, including the securities sold in any currently proposed transaction, shall not exceed USD5,000

.

  • There will be limited opportunity to cancel an investment and the business may not accept your investment.

Investors may cancel their investment commitment in an investment, using the methods provided to them via the Global Domination Crowd-funding Platform, or via written request to the business, and have their funds returned for any reason up to forty-eight (48) hours prior to the closing, as applicable to the investor’s investment commitment. If the investor has not cancelled his, her or its investment commitment prior to such deadline, the commitment shall be irrevocable.

The business reserves the right to reject investment commitments based upon the business’s review for any reason or for no reason. Should the business receive investment commitments for greater than the Maximum Offering Amount, the business will determine, in its sole discretion, which investments to accept.

  • You will need to determine whether this type of investing is appropriate for your personal situation.

The offering materials describe the various risks and conflicts of interest relating to an investment in the specific offering and to its operations. You should read the offering materials carefully to determine whether an investment is suitable for you in light of, among other things, your financial situation, need for liquidity, tax situation, risk tolerance and your other investments.

An investment in early stage businesses involves a high degree of risk, and should be regarded as speculative.

This does not purport to be an exhaustive list of risks associated with investing in small and early stage businesses, or any specific security type. The fact that a risk is listed under a certain security type, does not mean that risk would not exist under a separate security type.

When considering revenue share investments, you need to be informed of the various risks, including, but not limited to:

  • No secondary market available.

There is no market for the revenue share securities and it is not expected that any market will be developed in the foreseeable future.

  • The company may not generate sufficient revenue.

In the event that the company issuing the revenue share securities does not generate sufficient revenues from operations, investors may not receive any return at all and/or may lose a substantial portion (or possibly all) of their investment amounts.

  • Required payments are not guaranteed.

By investing in private placements relating to loans or revenue sharing securities, companies are required to make payments on a recurring basis. These payments may not be received due to financial or other difficulties experienced by the company. Investors must be prepared to bear the risk of not receiving their expected payments. Equity securities often do not come with required payments.

  • Investors will have no say in the operations of the business.

When investing in a debt security, investors will not become members or shareholders of the business and therefore will have no right to vote with respect to management or to participate in any decision regarding management of business operations. The business’s management will have sole management authority over the operations of the business.

  • Revenue share securities are unsecured.

Revenue share securities are unsecured obligations of the company issuing them and in the event of a default under the revenue share securities, investors will have no recourse against the assets of the company and rights that the investor may have under the revenue share agreement will be subordinate to the company’s lenders, if any.

  • Investors may receive no return on investment.

There can be no assurance that a prospective investor will receive any return on an investment or realize any profit on such prospective investor’s investment. The early-stage companies raising capital on Localstakve likely have never made any distributions to investors and likely operate under a policy to retain earnings, if any, to provide funds for the operation and expansion of the business. Review the specific offering materials for more information.

  • Revenue share securities may be required to report phantom income.

Because of the nature of the amount and timing of payments to be made under revenue share securities, investors will be required to recognize interest income from the revenue share securities each year, even if no payments are made with respect to the revenue share securities.

Please also be aware of the risks associated with investing in private placements under Regulation D and Crowdfunding offerings

An investment in early stage businesses involves a high degree of risk, and should be regarded as speculative. Prospective purchasers should consider carefully the risk factors outlined here, among others, in addition to the other information presented in the Offering Materials for each offering, in evaluating the Company and its business. This does not purport to be an exhaustive list of risks associated with investing in small and early stage businesses, or any specific security type. The fact that a risk is listed under a certain security type, does not mean that risk would not exist under a separate security type.

When considering equity investments, you need to be informed of the various risks, including, but not limited to:

  • No secondary market available.

There is no market for the equity securities issued on Global Domination and it is not expected that any market will be developed in the foreseeable future.

  • The company may not be profitable or generate revenue.

In the event that the company issuing the securities does not generate sufficient revenues and/or profits from operations, investors may not receive any return at all and/or may lose a substantial portion (or possibly all) of their investment amounts.

  • Required distributions are not guaranteed.

By investing in private placements, companies may be required to make distributions on a recurring basis. These distributions may not be received due to financial or other difficulties experienced by the company. Investors must be prepared to bear the risk of not receiving their expected distributions. Some businesses may not have any required distributions at all. Refer to the specific Offering Materials for each business for more information.

  • Investors should review the entity type of the business and its effect on taxes.

Depending on whether the business is a Corporation, Limited Liability Company, Partnership, or some other form of entity, the tax obligations of the business and investor will vary. Investors should carefully review the associated risks related to the form of entity outlined in the Offering Materials prior to investing.

  • Investors may suffer dilution from future offerings, acquisitions, and incentive grants.

The issuance or sale of equity securities in connection with acquisitions or additional rounds of equity financing or the issuance of incentive units to employees or others will have a dilutive effect on equity investors in a company. As a result, the percentage ownership of an investor and/or such investor’s economic interest in the company may be reduced in the future. In addition, subsequent investors may demand and receive terms more favourable than the terms of the offering made available through Global Domination.

  • The purchase price of securities in an offering may not reflect the value of those securities.

The offering price of the securities will have been established by the company and is not necessarily indicative of the value of the securities or the Company’s asset value, net worth, or other criteria of value. There can be no assurance that this price accurately reflects the current value of the securities.

  • Investors will have limited or no say in the operations of the business.

In general, the business’s management will have sole management authority over the operations of the business. Investors will have limited, or in some cases, no right to vote with respect to the management or to participate in any decision regarding management of business operations. Investor participation in voting may be further limited by the effects of dilution due to future offerings.
