Penalties for Using a Non Registered Broker to Raise Money

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by raisecapital on 2009-07-14

Tags: Funding Sources Broker Dealer Legal

PUBLIC:

In California, 25501.5 of the Corporations Code gives any person who purchases a security from, or sells a security to, a broker-dealer that is required to be licensed, but is not, the right to bring an action for rescission of the purchase or sale, or if already sold, for damages. Five year statute of limitations, or two after discovery, which ever is first.

1029.8 of the Code of Civil Procedure was amended to cover people who should be licensed as a broker-dealer, but who are not and take a commission for selling securities.

The purchaser can sue the "finder" for damages, and may recover treble damages (limited to $10,000 above the purchase price) and may be awarded attorneys fees and costs.

Most important, the law give the investor the right to rescind their investment (get their capital back) for two years, which puts the capital at risk for that period of time. That may make additional rounds more difficult to raise.

So the finder is, in fact, guaranteeing the investment.

Has anyone run into this in fund raising? Have they asked the finder about it? Has anyone recouped their investment or known of someone who did using this law?

By the way, it is my understanding that this doesn't apply to officers of the corporation.

Fees to a Middleman

TheFunded.com Advice

Posted by observer on 2009-01-19

Tags: Funding Sources Introductions Fees

PUBLIC:

Just saw a link to the document about a middleman sues a company for not paying all the fees for help in getting funded. I will leave to other parties make a conclusions about ethics of this. However the important part was disclosing the details of the agreement that company had signed with Warren Lieberfarb.
Young companies, especially a first time entrepreneur should be careful with paying such a fee in first place. But even if there is no choice to avoid, in any circumstances such a fees can be infinite
