Q & A
Americas Next Investment is paid from each company featured on the site. Companies pay ANI a fee to be on the site & an ongoing cost per lead from the leads generated as a result of the ANI feature.
Americas Next Investment also has a subscription fee for members who want exclusive content and programming.
Almost anyone can invest – subject to certain rules and considerations, including but not limited to:
Investment minimums on certain offerings can be as low as $100 (although each issuer may determine a larger investment minimum)
There may be some SEC-imposed limits as to how much a non-accredited investor can invest in a year. Most offerings will require US investors to be “accredited investors.” (According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, an accredited investor is a person who earned income that exceeded $200,000, or $300,000 together with a spouse, in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, OR has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse, excluding the value of the person’s primary residence).
Companies have the ability to accept or reject any subscription.
Potential investors are strongly advised to consult a financial professional when determining whether to make an investment in a company on the show.
Offerings will be made public to viewers in advance of the release of the related episode so that they can start their due diligence to consider all the risks associated with the company and any investment. In addition, offerings will stay open for a specified period (30 days, 60 days, 12 months, each is different) for potential investors to continue their research after the show.
In addition to the show and further background videos being published on the Americas Next Investment website, information will be made available to all investors in multiple formats. All investment documents will be provided by the issuers on their websites, funding platforms or by any broker/dealer which may be utilized by the issuers. The issuers or their broker/dealer partners (if any) will publish the offering documents, including the risk factors, that investors need to review to begin to evaluate a company on its merits. Viewers can review the company’s pitch, team, risks, financial statements, offering statement, and other disclosures. Potential investors can ask questions of the founders. They can discuss the deal with other potential investors on approved websites, subject to limitations. Investors are not on their own, even if it is up to them individually to ultimately decide if a particular investment is right for them.
The ANI Host consists of individuals who are asking questions designed to learn more about the companies. The questions asked are pre-selected, pre-screened, however not designed to replace the viewers’ own due diligence that they must complete before making an investment.
ANI Host does not make investment recommendations and nothing we say or post on our website, social media accounts, or elsewhere should be construed as such. We encourage you to read thoroughly our section on the risks involved in purchasing securities in private companies and to do your own due diligence on each company before making an investment decision.
A company featured on ANI, or not, should not be considered an endorsement, a recommendation, or a review of the suitability of any investment for any investor. Each potential investor needs to do their own due diligence and consider their own risk tolerance, as each investment opportunity carries risks, including the risk of losing all your money, the risk of not being able to sell your securities, either presently or in the future. For more information on risk disclosures, please contact the individual issuers.
- all purchasers in the offering are accredited investors
- the issuer takes reasonable steps to verify purchasers’ accredited investor status and
- certain other conditions in Regulation D are satisfied
The producers of Americas Next Investment, the host on the show and the issuers are not making investment recommendations and nothing that any of us say or post on our website, social media accounts, or elsewhere should be construed as such. We encourage you to read thoroughly the sections on all our websites regarding the risks involved in purchasing securities in private companies and to do your own due diligence on each company before making an investment decision.
The goal of Americas Next Investment and all participants in the show, including our producers, and issuers, is to connect issuers with investors only as an intermediary, and to educate, inform and entertain viewers interested in these topics. Individual investment decisions must be made based on the ability of the investor to accept the risk inherent in making investments in private securities.
None of the participants of the show can or will give any advice that would be considered investment advisory or investment banking services.
Nobody on the show will recommend a share price. All offerings are done at a fixed price, and investors can either invest or not. There is no negotiation of terms available for these offerings. The offering price for Securities is not a determination of their fair market value. The offering price for Securities was determined based on several assumptions and the application of subjective factors inherent in any valuation of a business, particularly one that has limited prior operating history and financial results, and is not based on perceived market value, book value, or any other established criteria. In most instances, no appraisals, pricing analyses or other traditional valuation analyses have been or will be prepared by any outside accounting or independent services firm in connection with establishing the price at which Securities will be sold or valued. Accordingly, the offering price for Securities may not represent the value an investor may be able to receive in the event of a sale of such Securities nor does it represent a determination of the fair market value of the Securities. There is no guarantee that any Securities have or will ever obtain a value equal to or greater than the offering price. Investors may lose their entire investment and should therefore only invest funds that they can afford to lose.
A market for the Securities may never develop. There currently is no public trading market for the securities, and issuers make no assurances that holders of Securities will be able to sell their Securities at all or at any price. There are no assurances that an issuer will pursue or complete any action that will result in the creation of a public trading market.
The securities offered by each company will not be filed or registered with or approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), nor has the Commission passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the offering materials. No state securities law administrator has passed on or endorsed the merits of this offering or the accuracy or the adequacy of the offering materials. Any representation to the contrary is unlawful.
The securities being offered and sold are restricted securities and may not be resold or otherwise disposed of by an investor unless, in the opinion of counsel satisfactory to the issuing company, registration under the applicable federal or state securities laws is not required, or compliance is made with such registration requirements.
Investors may be required to hold their securities for an indefinite period of time. There is no public trading market whatsoever for the securities.
If an investor purchases securities, they may not be able to resell. An active or liquid market in the securities may not develop and, if it does develop, it may not be sustainable. Investors may not be able to liquidate their securities quickly or at the market price if trading in the securities is not active.
Transfer of the securities is subject to restrictions on transfer. The securities are being offered and sold in reliance upon exemptions from the registration requirements of federal and state securities laws. Those exemptions require that the securities be purchased for investment purposes only, and not with a current view toward their distribution or resale.
