Similar to a Business Development Company ("Public BDC"), iCapVentures is a "Private" Business Development Enterprise ("BDE"). Created to help small & medium enterprises (SME's). Our BDE provides permanent capital to management, allows investments by the general public uses mezzanine financing opportunities and in alliance with Maverix Ventures, takes companies public on foreign stock exchanges.

iCapVentures Business Development Enterprise Process
iCapVentures, Inc. forms a new California domiciled HoldCo in which three SubCo’s Vend-in to be incubated – after substancial Seed Capital is raised, HoldCo is acquired by a publically traded Frankfurt company. HoldCo conducts a CA 25102(n) exempt Private Placement Offering of Participating Preferred Shares, 8% Annual Cumulative Dividend, a 120% Call on the Preferred and 1X Par on the Participating. The Private Placement focuses on California Qualified Purchasers and Self-Directed 401K Investors using our patent pending SEC compliant self-funding capitalization system. Private Placement capital of +/- $1MM drops down into each SubCo and additionally pays the costs for each to go public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, through our strategic alliance partner Maverix Ventures.Maverix Ventures The associated cost for each SubCo is minimal, as the HoldCo has the benefit of spreading the cost across all three companies and investors have the benefit of a diversified risk into all three SubCo’s, via the HoldCo.
iCapVentures Business Development Enterprise Process HoldCo with all SubCo’s is acquired by one of Maverix Ventures Publically traded companies on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Maverix Ventures PubCo manages the Frankfurt capitalization process with their Germain Market Makers. See Going Public Frankfurt Strategies & TimelineGoing Public Frankfurt Strategies & Timeline SubCo is capitalized up to +/- $25MM and then Maverix will assist them in Spinning-off to be independently traded on the Frankfurt, and dually listing them on other foreign stock exchanges for additional capitalization. iCapVentures arranges a going public relationship with affiliate Maverix Ventures for the next Phase of capitalization. See Maverix Frankfurt Listing White Paper and Vend-In Spin-Off for additional details Maverix VenturesMaverix Frankfurt ListingVend-In Spin-Off Maverix additionally assists in PIPE, Mezz and institutional capitalization. Once SubCo Spins-off and is an independent Frankfurt Exchange company, it can issue additional rounds of capitalization as an independently trading company, further capitalizing SubCo.
iCapVentures Business Development Enterprise Process Once SubCo Spins-off and is an independent Frankfurt Exchange company, iCapVentures can assist SubCo in conducting a 144A and Reg S Placement to Qualified Institutional Buyers/Investors which will produce higher amounts of capitalization. Maverix will assist SubCo in establishing and compliance for Dual listings on other foreign stock exchanges to increase the exposure of the SubCo to additional markets and investor bases.
iCapVentures Business Development Enterprise Process For substancial capitalization thereafter, iCapVentures can assist SubCo in their Compensating Balance Structured Collateral Loan. An "Interest Only Structured Collateral Loan Program” - this established system of structured financing uses traditional banking mechanisms as its fundamental components. The result is a stable structure that produces a 100% monetary instrument collateral for international and domestic project financing. The primary function of the structure is to procure an institutional compensating balance depositor and a major international bank to make a loan in a like amount as the deposit, charging interest only, because a portion of the loan funds acquire insured collateral instruments which guarantee the re-payment of the principal in a fixed term certain. The result of the structure is that the borrower receives a net amount of capital that it needs to implement its project at a cost much lower than a traditional loan.Compensating Balance Structured Collateral Loan

There are strategies that can help investment professionals invest in new ventures and get results that are more predictable and less volatile. If you were investing in a new venture and had the option of buying one share of stock for ten dollars with principal protection or two shares with no protection of principal, what would you do? Take the protection or the risk? iCapVentures, using their proprietary PrincipalProtector™ principal protection strategy, makes that option possible because they provide financial insurance that can guarantee to return an amount equal to 100% of the principal invested in an equity or debt funding. PrincipalProtector™ utilizes guaranteed insurance products as collateral to enhance debt and equity funding transactions for investment professionals and entrepreneurs. The strategies provide a hedge or principal protection allocation model which afford the investment professionals and lenders with asset allocation tools that return an amount equal to their principal loan or investment in speculative funding arrangements, real estate transactions or business transactions.

Unlike zero-coupon bonds and other financial instruments, Guaranteed Contracts of Insurance ("GIC") offer tax-deferred accumulation and higher yields thereby accelerating the trust's growth. The investor’s beneficial interest in the trust is not subject to bankruptcy or creditor claims of other investors. The beneficial interest in the trust can be transferred to accommodate a number of investor benefits without liquidating the GIC and precipitating unfavorable tax consequences. The trust flexibility provides for the assignment of beneficial interest, assignment of trustee, change in custodian and early exit strategies. Virtually no risk to Principal and high yield IRR potential Guaranteed by the Insurance Contracts. Eliminates the worst-case investment scenario... full loss of principal with no return or income. Enables investors to have the best of both worlds...safety & potentially significant returns from investment, or if used as a side-fund to protect an investment in spectulative new venture investment.

(Variable-Risk Variable-Return) In the Adjustable Life Insurance concept, one can adjust from Whole to Term or Term to Whole Life in whatever incremental percentage desired, and it also allows for an increase or decrease in the amount of coverage. In a similar way, the Adjustable Private Placement Offering™ provides investors the flexibility of adjusting from Debt (Notes) to Equity (Common or Preferred Stock) and offers full principal protection. The Principal guarantee is also convertible to an increased percentage of Equity, which then would provide partial principal protection, or fully convertible to Equity which forfeits the protection - all in whatever incremental adjustments are desired by the investor - you control the amount of risk in your investments - you control the amount and type of return!

Extended Private Investment in a Public EntityExtended Private Investment in a Public Entity – A Pass-Through Investment Structure for Private Companies. The iCapVentures Pass-Through Investment Structure is an ideal mechanism to fund certain private companies. The Pass-Through Structure suits a company that has noteworthy management or proprietary assets, seeks to raise growth capital without selling a controlling interest, yet is not ready for a public stock market. The Pass-Through Structure simply places a publicly traded company (“Pubco”) in the middle between our investment and the private company and enables us to invest in and to use our global resources to support the private company.
VFA/GEM Public Company Beneficiary Private Co. Cash Securities Warrants The Beneficiary private company receives growth capital while staying private and maintaining ownership control. The Beneficiary also benefits by having the Pubco as a strategic partner/investor and by having a multi-billion dollar, multinational fund backing them. The transaction can close very quickly once all parties agree to terms. The Public Company benefits by (i) making a profit on its investment in the Beneficiary, and (ii) advancing a strategic interest relating to the Beneficiary which is important to the Pubco. iCapVentures and their affiliates benefit by putting their capital to work in promising investment opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to investors restricted to public market transactions.
IN CONCLUSION Most of the investment banking and business development we conduct, as a company, is for our own acquisitions and internal business deals – we do however work with select issuers and provide them Investment Banking Solutions or Vend them into our BDE to assist the capitalization and success of their company/venture. If we select your company, we will engineer an organizational and financial plan that will give your company the highest probability of capital attainment and business success possible. Our process is simply a logical progression of steps that must be taken to ensure that you always maintain a relative position of strength, maintain the vast majority of equity ownership, as well as, voting control. These are the precious elements that most business owners give up too early in the capital raising process or beginning stages of business development.
Our existing relationships with the investment banking industry provide you with comprehensive capitalization formulas to increase your leverage, achieve your funding goals quicker, and save you a great deal of money in the process. Simply put, we provide you the most comprehensive solution available anywhere, for the capitalization of your company or new venture. IN CONCLUSION Our fee schedule is designed so that we are equally committed to a successful capital raising effort. Our SubCo companies typically make a small investment in the initial Phase I process. The success of iCap Ventures is dependent upon our successful capitalization of our SubCo companies.
If you agree with our approach as presented herein, and you have further questions about this process, please communicate with us through the contact information provided on our website, or us below. IN CONCLUSION To initiate our services, a SubCo company must be able to commit a pre- determined amount of capital to the process. Certain costs must be paid as deliverables are provided and hard costs incurred for the Phase I capital raising process. If you are unable or unwilling to cover these costs, we respectifully request that you search for another firm who is willing to work with you on another basis. Notwithstanding, all costs after this initial participation in the Phase I process, are self-funding from the capitalization procured. In highly selective cases, we may be able to participate in a portion of the costs, or completely underwrite all of these initial costs, through our third-party investor relationships.
