OFFERING CIRCULAR

Groundfloor Finance Inc.

 

Five Series of Limited Recourse Obligations

Totaling $614,770

 

Dated: March 15, 2017

 

This Post-Qualification Offering Circular Amendment No. 42 (this “Offering Circular Amendment No. 42”) amends the offering circular of Groundfloor Finance Inc, dated December 8, 2015, as qualified on December 15, 2015, and as may be amended and supplemented from time to time (the “Offering Circular”), to add additional securities to be offered pursuant to the Offering Circular. Unless otherwise defined below, capitalized terms used herein shall have the same meanings as set forth in the Offering Circular. See “Incorporation by Reference of Offering Circular” below.

 

This Offering Circular Amendment No. 42 relates to the offer and sale (the “Offering”) of up to an additional $614,770 in aggregate amount of Limited Recourse Obligations (the “LROs”) consisting of five separate series of LROs to be issued by Groundfloor Finance Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). We own and operate a web-based investment platform (the “Platform”) on which we conduct our business. Our principal offices are located at 75 Fifth Street, NW, Suite 2170, Atlanta, GA 30308. The phone number for these offices is (404) 850-9225.  Our mailing address is PO Box 79346, Atlanta, Georgia 30357. Our Platform is accessible at www.groundfloor.us.

 

We will issue the LROs in distinct series, each corresponding to a real estate development project (each, a “Project”) to be financed by a commercial loan from us (each, a “Loan”). The borrower for each Project is a legal entity (the “Developer”) that owns the underlying property and has been organized by one or more individuals (each, a “Principal”) that own and operate the Developer.

 

The LROs will be unsecured special, limited obligations of the Company. The LROs are not listed on any national securities exchange or on the over-the-counter inter-dealer quotation system. There is no market for the LROs. Our obligation to make payments on a LRO is limited to an amount equal to each holder’s pro rata share of amounts we actually receive as payments on the corresponding Loan, net of certain fees and expenses retained by us. See the sections titled “General Terms of the LROs,” beginning on page 4 and page 91 of the Offering Circular, “The LROS Covered by this Offering Circular,” and “Project Summaries” below for the specific terms of the five series of LROs covered by this Offering Circular Amendment No. 42.

 

We do not guarantee payment of the LROs in the amount or on the time frame expected. The LROs are not obligations of the Developers or their Principals, and we do not guarantee payment on the corresponding Loans. We have the authority to modify the terms of the corresponding Loans which could, in certain circumstances, reduce (or eliminate) the expected return on your investment. See “General Terms of the LROs—Administration, Service, Collection and Enforcement of Loan Documents”.

 

The LROs are speculative securities. Investment in the LROs involves significant risk, and you may be required to hold your investment for an indefinite period of time. You should purchase these securities only if you can afford a complete loss of your investment. See the “Risk Factors” section on page 16 of the Offering Circular.

 

We will commence offering each series of LROs promptly after the date this Offering Circular Amendment No. 42 is qualified by posting a separate landing page on our Platform corresponding to each particular Loan and Project (each, a “Project Summary”). The offering of each series of LROs covered by this Offering Circular Amendment No. 42 will remain open until the earlier of (1) 30 days, unless extended, or (2) the date the offering of a particular series of LROs is fully subscribed with irrevocable funding commitments (the “Offering Period”); however, we may extend the Offering Period for a particular series of LROs in our sole discretion (with notice to potential investors), up to a maximum of 45 days. We will notify investors who have previously committed funds to purchase such series of LROs of any such extension by email and will post a notice of the extension on the corresponding Project Summary on our Platform.

 

This Offering is being conducted on a “best-efforts” basis, which means our officers will use their commercially reasonable best efforts in an attempt to sell the LROs. Such officers will not receive any commission or any other remuneration for these sales. In offering the LROs on our behalf, the officers will rely on the safe harbor from broker-dealer registration set out in Rule 3a4-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

 

The LROs offered hereby may only be purchased by investors residing in California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia. This Offering Circular Amendment No. 42 shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sales of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be, unlawful, prior to registration or qualification under the laws of any such state. In addition, the LROs are offered only to investors who meet certain financial suitability requirements. See “Investor Suitability Requirements.”

 

NO FEDERAL OR STATE SECURITIES COMMISSION HAS APPROVED, DISAPPROVED, ENDORSED, OR RECOMMENDED THIS OFFERING. YOU SHOULD MAKE AN INDEPENDENT DECISION WHETHER THIS OFFERING MEETS YOUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES AND FINANCIAL RISK TOLERANCE LEVEL. NO INDEPENDENT PERSON HAS CONFIRMED THE ACCURACY OR TRUTHFULNESS OF THIS DISCLOSURE, NOR WHETHER IT IS COMPLETE. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS ILLEGAL.

 

THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION DOES NOT PASS UPON THE MERITS OF OR GIVE ITS APPROVAL TO ANY SECURITIES OFFERED OR THE TERMS OF THE OFFERING, NOR DOES IT PASS UPON THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY OFFERING CIRCULAR OR OTHER SOLICITATION MATERIALS. THESE SECURITIES ARE OFFERED PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION WITH THE COMMISSION; HOWEVER, THE COMMISSION HAS NOT MADE AN INDEPENDENT DETERMINATION THAT THE SECURITIES OFFERED HEREUNDER ARE EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION.

The Borrower has now begun renovation. If this offering is fully subscribed, the property will be assigned to us from the subsidiary, and we will continue to administer and service the loan per the terms of our Offering Circular. The renovation of the property may be extensive, and therefore subject to delays and other unexpected issues.

CLOSING CONDITIONS Loan is conditioned upon a clean title search and valid title insurance at the time of close. DEVELOPER FEES GROUNDFLOOR generally charges borrowers between 2% and 6% of the principal amount of the loan for our services.

These closing costs typically range from $500 to $1500. Unless otherwise limited by applicable law, GROUNDFLOOR will charge a penalty of 2% for any extension made to the borrower. See GROUNDFLOOR ‘Fees and Expenses’ in the Offering Circular.

Upon completion, the Borrower intends to sell the property to repay the Groundfloor loan. Click here to view the LRO Agreement PROPERTY PHOTOS MISCELLANEOUS PROJECT SPECIFIC RISK FACTORS We advanced the Borrower the money it needed to purchase this property on December 30, 2016 through a wholly owned subsidiary. The Borrower is now in possession of the property. If this offering is fully subscribed, the property will be assigned to us from the subsidiary, and we will continue to administer and service the loan per the terms of our Offering Circular. The renovation of the property may be extensive, and therefore subject to delays and other unexpected issues. The renovation will require permitting, and permits may not be obtained on time or may be denied. The Borrower has only undertaken one project in the past, and has not sold yet. As such, the Borrower’s average revenue, costs, and margins cannot be calculated. Please consult the Offering Circular for further discussion of general risk factors. CLOSING CONDITIONS Loan is conditioned upon a clean title search and valid title insurance at the time of close. DEVELOPER FEES GROUNDFLOOR generally charges borrowers between 2% and 6% of the principal amount of the loan for our services. GROUNDFLOOR does not take a ‘spread’ on any part of the interest payments. Developers may capitalize the cost of closing into the principal amount of their request. These closing costs typically range from $500 to $1500. Unless otherwise limited by applicable law, GROUNDFLOOR will charge a penalty of 2% for any extension made to the borrower. See GROUNDFLOOR ‘Fees and Expenses’ in the Offering Circular. SEC FILING INFORMATION The series of LROs corresponding to this Project are offered pursuant to Post-Qualification Amendment No. 42 to the Offering Circular dated December 8, 2015 (each, as amended and supplemented from time to time), including the documents incorporated by reference therein. You may access and review these documents on the Internal Filings Directory located on our Platform.
