Prospective Investors should be aware that the value of the Shares, which will be unquoted, can fluctuate. In addition,
there is no certainty that Investors will get back the full amount which they invest. Having regard to the Company's
investment strategy and the tax reliefs available, the Ordinary Shares should be considered as a medium to long term
investment.
The value of Shares may go up or down. An Investor in any Company may not get back the full amount invested;
consequently, they may lose some or all of the funds invested. There is no market, nor is there intended to be a market for
the Shares at the present time for the foreseeable future. There is no guarantee that the Company's investment strategy
will be successful.
Investors are strongly advised to seek professional advice in relation to the taxation implications of an investment in an EIS
qualifying company. There are circumstances in which an Investor could cease to qualify for the taxation reliefs offered by
the EIS. In addition, an Investor could cease to qualify for the EIS reliefs if they received value from the Company during
the period beginning one year before the Shares are issued and ending three years after the date of issue or from when
the Company commences trading, if later.
There is no guarantee that either provisional or formal EIS clearance will be agreed or that such agreement will not be
subsequently withdrawn. In those circumstances, subscription monies will not be returned to Investors. Returns to
Investors will be lower in the event that the Company fails to obtain EIS tax relief or if it is subsequently withdrawn, in which
case the EIS Income Tax Relief and CGT Deferral Relief referred to above would not be granted..
It is possible for Investors to lose their EIS tax reliefs by taking or not taking certain steps; Investors are advised to take
appropriate independent professional advice on the tax aspects of their investment.
The information in this document is based upon current taxation and other legislation and any changes in the legislation or
in the levels and basis of, and reliefs from, taxation may affect the value of an investment in the Company.
The subscription for Shares and the performance of Shares will not be covered by the Financial Services Compensation
Scheme or by any other compensation scheme.
The investment described in this document may not be suitable for all investors. Investors are accordingly advised to
consult an investment adviser authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and an appropriately
qualified taxation adviser, prior to investing.
