Private Placements conducted under Reg A/A+, Reg CF and or Reg D may not be suitable for all types of investors. The purchase of privately placed securities of a non-public company is, in general, a highly speculative investment and should be undertaken only by persons who are financially able to bear the loss of their entire investment and who have no need for liquidity of their investment in the issuer of such securities. Such investments involve various risks relating to the nature of the financing and potentially the state and federal legalities surrounding the issuer, the nature and stage of development of the issuer’s business, and the business sector in which it operates.
