EB5 Private Placement Memorandum
Find Foreign Investors
PPM.net creates private placement memorandums for what is known as EB-5 private placement memorandum programs. Foreign investors, which represent nearly 30% of Private Placement’s investor network, have shown great interest in both the EB-5 program and general investing in U.S. companies. However, the EB-5 private placement memorandum program is in many ways ideal for foreign investors and sometimes preferred. The PPM.net also works with companies that promote EB-5 private placement memorandum programs and therefore have access to foreign investors as well.
EB-5 Program - the most direct path to a U.S. Green Card
Arguably, a United States Green card is one of the most sought after cards in the world. Through the EB-5 program, a foreign investor would receive an American visa, which allows for residency and employment eligibility, not only for the applicant/investor, but for their spouse and children as well (with restrictions).
Three Options for EB-5 Investors
- The active investment of $1 Million, also known as the million dollar green card;
- An active investment of $500,000 into a designated Targeted Employment Area (TEA);
- The passive Regional Center investment of $500,000.
- The active investments require participation in the enterprise by the principal applicant, the passive investment does not.
- All will lead to permanent residency and the right to live and work in the United States.
Unlike many of the other visa categories offered, which allow applicants to apply for a green card after a period of residency in the United States, the EB-5 program provides a conditional green card to the successful applicant and their family immediately upon approval by the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services). An applicant/investor and their family can arrive in the United States knowing that they have Permanent Residency. Subsequently they can apply for citizenship after five years.
If you are seeking capital from foreign investors, a private placement memorandum (PPM) is typically recommended. The document itself adds credibility and professionalism to your company, and acts as a ‘protectionary’ element to your venture.
