WARNING: THE INVESTOR RISKS LOSING ALL OR PART OF HIS INVESTMENT AND/OR NOT ACHIEVING THE EXPECTED RETURN.
THE INVESTMENT INSTRUMENTS ARE NOT LISTED: THE INVESTOR RUNS THE RISK OF HAVING GREAT DIFFICULTY IN SELLING HIS POSITION TO A THIRD PARTY IF HE SO WISHES.
Immotokens Real Estate A (hereinafter the "Issuer") is a limited liability company under Belgian law whose main objective is the securitisation of real estate in order to allow investors to invest indirectly in real estate.
The Issuer realises this objective by raising capital from the public in order to acquire real estate with a view to leasing and transferring it. The capital is raised through the issue of "tokenised" debt instruments (the "Immo Debt Tokens").
Via these Immo Debt Tokens, potential investors (the "Token holders") offered an opportunity to invest indirectly in real estate. Although various opportunities to invest indirectly in real estate have been offered in Belgium for several decades, the Immo Debt Tokens offered in the context of this issue (the "Offered Immo Debt Tokens") the first debt instruments issued in the form of tokens created through DDistributed Ledger Technology (hereinafter "DLT"). DLT is a type of technology that allows the capture of encrypted data in a distributed ledger supports.
The structure of this offering is as follows: the Issuer will purchase a real estate property (hereinafter the "Real estate") purchases. For this Property, one series of Immo Debt Tokens will be issued, i.e. the Offered Immo Debt Tokens. The Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens relate exclusively to the Real Estate. Any subsequent issue of Immo Debt Tokens by the Issuer will always relate to another property, and will be strictly separated from this issue/the Offered Immo Debt Tokens. The different cash flows will be managed and reported by the Issuer through the platform.
Part I. - Principal risks inherent in the issuer and in the investment instruments offered and specific to the offer in question
- Risk factors relating to the Issuer
- Risks related to the Issuer's business
- Risks associated with the concentration of the investment
- Risks related to the Issuer's business
The profits connected with the Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens depend exclusively on the annual rental income and/or realised capital gains resulting from the sale of the Real Estate (together the "Revenue"), which entails a concentration risk. Any (temporary) reduction or absence of rental income or a realised capital loss will also be borne exclusively by the investors who have subscribed to the Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens. Consequently, the income and risks of different properties are not pooled.
The aforementioned concentration risk means, inter alia, that if the rental income is disappointing, this may have an adverse effect on the return of the Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens. If the sale of the Property is accompanied by a loss in value, for example as a result of a general decline in property prices, each Token Holder can only claim a pro rata part of the sales proceeds.
The Token holder runs the risk of losing all or part of their investment if the underlying property does not perform.
The Issuer can under no circumstances be held liable for disappointing Revenues. The risk of missing/reduced Revenues and loss of value are fully borne by the Token Holder.
- Risks related to a possible insolvency of the Issuer
There is a risk that as a result of the bankruptcy of the Issuer, the Token Holders would not be able to recover the amounts to which they are entitled, being the invested amount, any capital gains and the future rental income. In principle, it cannot be excluded that the Issuer is unable to fulfil its obligations. There is currently no objective information about the quality of the Issuer as a debtor and no historical financial information available.
In the event of insolvency, there is a risk of concurrence of creditors and Token holders of other series which may cause the Token holder to lose all or part of its deposit.
The token holder runs the risk of losing all or part of its deposit in the event of the Issuer's insolvency.
220.127.116.11 Risks related to the start-up phase of the Issuer
There is no proof of concept of the proposed activity, no track record and no historical financial information that could provide information on the progress of the investment.
The token holder runs the risk of losing all or part of his investment and/or investing in securities that do not perform as initially expected.
18.104.22.168 Risks associated with insufficient working capital of the Issuer
There is a risk that the working capital of the Issuer is insufficient to meet the needs of the next twelve months. This may lead to the insolvency of the Issuer as a result of which the token holder runs the risk of losing all or part of its deposit.
- Risks associated with real estate
- Risks relating to the Property
Due to its nature, the Property may age functionally and/or physically, which may cause it to lose its attractiveness. In this case, additional investments may be necessary, which may weigh on the Revenues.
Small, day-to-day investments (<10% of the acquisition value) are approved and executed by the external manager without the participation of the Token holders. The payment of these investments is deducted from the revenues. The Token Holders have no say in these decisions.
Large investments (>10% of the acquisition value) that are necessary to maintain the value of the Property are pre-financed by the Issuer through bank financing and deducted from the rental income. As a result, there is a risk that the Token Holder will not receive any income for long periods. The Token Holders can, according to the provision of the BAV, give their say in such decisions.
Other risks may include, but are not limited to, the destruction (whether complete or not) of the Property, soil contamination, expropriation, asbestos, natural disasters, war, terror, other calamities and non-covered damages or costs by fire or other insurers.
However, prior to the purchase of the Property, an appraisal report shall be carried out to avoid hidden defects. The valuation report shall be carried out by a recognised surveyor in accordance with these Form requirements. However, the appraisal report does not constitute an indemnification against a possible impairment. The valuation report can be consulted on the Platform at the start of the offering.
As a Token holder, a decline in value of the underlying property may result in a total or partial loss of capital and income.
- Risks associated with the cyclical nature of the real estate market
The real estate market has a cyclical character that is particularly linked to the general economic situation, interest rates and the expectations of the main players with regard to economic growth and inflation. An economic slowdown, a recession or a crisis of regional, national or international scope may have a negative impact on the Revenues.
The Token Holder runs the risk of losing capital if the sales value of the property decreases. The Token Holder runs the risk of receiving less revenue than expected due to the reduction in rental income.
- Risks associated with supply
- Risks associated with the limited liquidity and value of Immo Debt Tokens
The Offered Immo Debt Tokens are not listed and will not be listed on any regulated market or MTF (Multilateral Trading Facility). The Issuer does not organise a secondary market. In addition, the Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens offer no protection against inflation or monetary erosion. Monetary erosion means that the real value of the amount invested in tokens at the time of repayment is lower, due to inflation, than the value at the time of issuance of the tokens.
The Token holder runs the risk that it would be difficult or even impossible to recover the invested amount during the long term. Due to inflation or monetary erosion, the Token holder runs the risk of getting back less capital than initially invested.
22.214.171.124 Risks related to loss of capital
There are significant risks associated with the purchase of these securities. The Token holder runs the risk of losing his entire deposit.
126.96.36.199 Risks associated with the lack of income and added value
The income paid out depends, inter alia, on the extent to which the Property is let and on the indexation of rents. The capital gain is uncertain and will only be known upon the sale of the Property.
The Token holder runs the risk of receiving less return than expected or displayed. The Token holder runs the risk of receiving back less than the original deposit when the property is sold.
188.8.131.52 Risks related to the cancellation of the offer
If the minimum amount of the offer is not reached, the Issuer may choose not to tokenise the Property and cancel the offer. The Token holders will receive a refund of deposit increased by an interest of 3% per annum.
184.108.40.206 Risks associated with cost increases
Costs that are specific to the property are deducted from the property income and therefore the return. An increase in these costs puts the Token holder at risk of a loss of return.
220.127.116.11 Risks related to the limited participation of Token holders
As an individual Token Holder, you have a limited say in the Real Estate as opposed to classic ownership of a property. The Token Holder only has a say to the extent that the BAV of the Token Holders is authorised. Furthermore, the Token Holder only has a limited say in his/her share and is therefore bound by the decisions of the majority.
- Risks related to the use of the website
Technical malfunctions may occur in the use of the website where the Offered Real Estate Debt Tokens are offered such as, but not limited to, login, purchase or registration problems, server overload, cyber attacks (e.g. hacking, phishing).
This runs the risk of the Token holder being temporarily unable to use the website.
