This guide was designed to help you, a prospective investor in Nous Global Market's current fund-raising round on Syndicate Room, better understand the opportunity. It shows what we consider to be a likely value of your investment over time, assuming that we hit our business targets. In particular it shows how quickly the value of the company is expected to increase, as we get our operating licence and go live.
Your capital is at risk. The below values are projections based on various assumptions that may not come to pass. You should not rely on these numbers to plan your financial future. Any investment should form part of a balanced portfolio.
Please tell us about yourself. We can provide a better estimate of your returns if we know more about the tax treatment you will get.
Your risk is the most you can lose in the worst case where the company fails to hit its targets and winds down. Although we use that worst-case scenario for this planning exercise, it is more likely that Nous would find a buyer than simply wind down - because Nous already has a valuable customer base, valuable technology and proven ability to find new customers at a low cost.
If you claim EIS benefits, you cannot sell your shares for at least 3 years from the date of purchase, or you are liable to pay back any benefits claimed.
The following table shows the estimated value of your investment over time, if we hit the planned milestones.
We have assumed you will pay Capital Gains Tax of 20% on all profits.
We have not shown the typical Return On Investment but instead shown the "Return on Risk" - your expected returns divided by the most you can lose. This gives a more accurate idea of the value you are getting for the risk you are taking.
We have assumed two rounds of additional financing. A Series A round would be timed post monthly-break-even and a Series B post white-labelling or expansion. Each round is assumed to dilute shareholders by 20%. As you can see, the increase in share values from successfully accessing this very large addressable market completely outweighs the dilutive effect of the financing (and the additional financing allows us to grow even quicker, increasing share value more quickly).
