Risk Warning for an investment in Natural Ecology Mitigation Ltd (NEM)

Investing in early stage businesses can be very rewarding, but it involves a number of risks. To invest in NEM you need to understand five important risks. These are:

Loss of investment

A large proportion of early-stage businesses fail and therefore investing in these businesses may involve significant risk and it is likely that you may lose all, or part, of your investment. You should only invest an amount that you are willing to lose and should build a diversified portfolio to spread risk. If a business you invest in fails, the company will not pay you back your investment.

Lack of liquidity

Liquidity is the ease with which you can sell your shares after you have purchased them. Shares bought in NEM cannot be sold easily as they are unlikely to be listed on a secondary trading market, such as AIM, Plus or the London Stock Exchange. Even successful companies rarely list shares on such an exchange. Without a public market to find a buyer for shares it may be more difficult to sell them for a cash return. Investment in NEM should be viewed as a long term and illiquid investment.

Rarity of dividends

Dividends are payments made by a business to its shareholders from the company’s profits. NEM is an early stage company, and these companies will rarely pay dividends to their investors. This means that you are unlikely to see a return on your investment until you are able to sell your shares. Profits are typically re-invested into the business to fuel growth and build shareholder value. Businesses have no obligation to pay shareholder dividends – however a dividend is currently planned for payment in 2018 although this depends entirely on the performance of the business to ensure its ability to pay.

Possibility of dilution

Any investment may be subject to dilution in the future. Dilution occurs when a company issues more shares. Dilution affects every existing shareholder who does not buy any of the new shares being issued. As a result an existing shareholder’s proportionate shareholding of the company is reduced, or ‘diluted’-this has an effect on a number of things, including voting, dividends and value.

NEM offer A-Ordinary Shares, which include pre-emption rights that protect an investor from dilution if exercised. The business must give shareholders with A-Ordinary Shares the opportunity to buy additional shares during a subsequent fundraising round so that they can maintain or preserve their shareholding.

The need for diversification

Diversification involves spreading your money across multiple investments to reduce risk. However, it will not lessen all types of risk. Diversification is an essential part of investing. Investors should only invest a proportion of their available investment funds in a single enterprise and should balance this with safer, more liquid investments.
