Inferring that EB-5 due diligence firms are not independent and their findings can be procured is a red-herring, designed to maintain the status quo.

CMB recently published a blog titled EB-5 Due Diligence - Third Party Websites: Considering one of the many independent EB-5 due diligence services? in which they dismiss the notion that investors are served by retaining a due diligence firm before selecting an EB-5 investment.

 

 

Concurrent Reg S and Reg D Offerings

Posted by Kurt Reuss on June 17, 2016

EB5 Business plan

Kurt: Let's talk about what I find to be the most complicated part of 506(c) and squaring it with Reg S, and that is the issue of concurrent offerings. It seems to me that if you're trying to do a Reg D offering at the same time you're doing a Reg S offering, those two objectives compete with each other.

Let’s say you're doing a general solicitation under 506(c) and simultaniously under Reg S you can't have any contact with people in the US. How can you do a concurrent offering of both Reg S and Reg D?

EB-5 Business Plan Process, from Start to Offering

Posted by Kurt Reuss on March 22, 2016

Kurt: How long does it take from the time someone wants to start putting an EB5 investment projects together, to completing it and being ready to take the offering to market?

Lets say from the time they meet with an immigration attorney to the time they should expect to have completed putting together the offering package?

Martin, could you walk us through the process? My sense is that the immigration attorney typically acts as the quarterback on EB-5 offering package . How do you see your firm's role?

Martin: As precisely that; we're the quarterback. We pull together a team which we think will be suitable for the project. That team might include a business plan writer, an economist and a securities lawyer. We also work with the client, their accountant and their business lawyer.

We usually have a kickoff call with everybody to assign tasks so everyone gets to know each other. Everybody will send out a questionnaire to the developer and we try to go through them so that there's not a lot of overlap. Then, we make sure that people are meeting their schedules to produce what they need.
