Although the Site may provide data, information or content provided by third-parties or us relating to investment strategies and/or opportunities to buy and/or sell securities, you should not interpret any such content as tax, legal, financial, or investment advice by us or a recommendation by us to invest in any offering posted on the Site. Any decision to invest shall be based solely on your own consideration and analysis of the risks involving a particular offering and is made at your own risk. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for determining the suitability of an investment or strategy and accept the risks associated with such decisions, which include the risk of losing the entire amount of your principal. You agree and acknowledge that you are responsible for conducting your own legal, accounting and other due diligence review of the investment opportunities posted on the Site. You are strongly advised to consult a licensed legal professional and investment advisor for any legal, tax, insurance, or investment advice as the Site does not provide any of the foregoing advice or recommendations.
Prometheum hosts two types of offerings, made under Regulation A and Regulation D.
Regulation A – These securities offerings are available to U.S. investors who are “accredited investors” as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) as well as non-accredited investors subject to certain investment limitations as set forth in Regulation A, as amended, under the Securities Act (popularly known as “Reg A+”).
Regulation D – These securities offerings are only available to U.S. investors who are “accredited investors” as defined by Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act and are made under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D.
Before you can invest in any of the securities offerings on the Site, you must register with the Site and (for Regulation A or Regulation D offerings) qualify either as an Accredited Investor or represent that you will meet the investment thresholds under Tier 2 of Reg A+ for Qualified Purchasers. Prior to investing, you may be asked to fill out a certification and provide necessary documentation as proof of your income and/or net worth, in addition to Know-Your-Customer and Anti Money Laundering checks, to verify that you are qualified to invest in offerings posted on this Site. You acknowledge and agree that all information you provide for the registration is complete and accurate. By registering with the Site for purposes of subscribing to securities offerings as an Accredited Investor, you represent and warrant that you come within at least one of the following categories:
- a natural person who has individual net worth, or joint net worth with the person’s spouse, that exceeds $1 million at the time of the purchase, excluding the value of your primary residence;
- Explanation: In calculating net worth, you include all of your assets (other than your primary residence) whether liquid or illiquid, such as cash, stock, securities, personal property and real estate based on the fair market value of such property MINUS all debts and liabilities (other than a mortgage or other debt secured by your primary residence unless the liability exceed the fair market value of your primary residence).
- a natural person with income exceeding $200,000 in each of the two most recent years or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000 for those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income level in the current year;
- a bank, insurance company, registered investment company, business development company, or small business investment company;
- an employee benefit plan, within the meaning of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, if a bank, insurance company, or registered investment adviser makes the investment decisions, or if the plan has total assets in excess of $5 million;
- a charitable organization, corporation, or partnership with assets exceeding $5 million;
- a business in which all the equity owners are Accredited Investors; or
- a trust with assets in excess of $5 million, not formed to acquire the securities offered, whose purchases a sophisticated person makes.
By registering with the Site for purposes of subscribing to Regulation A securities offerings as a non-accredited investor, you represent and warrant that your investment in any Reg A+ offering posted on this site will not exceed the greater of 10% of your annual income or 10% of your net worth (excluding the value of your primary residence). YOU MUST MEET ONE OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA. WE ARE ENTITLED TO AND WILL RELY UPON YOUR REPRESENTATIONS. You agree that, should any material changes occur that might affect your status as an Accredited Investor, you shall immediately provide Prometheum with notice in writing.
The securities offered on the Site are only suitable for prospective investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risks associated with those investments, including the risk of complete loss of your investment. Securities sold pursuant to Regulation D through Prometheum are not publicly traded and, therefore, are illiquid unless registered with the SEC. Securities will be subject to restrictions on resale or transfer including holding period requirements. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity need, and long-term commitments. Users must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.
The securities being offered have not been registered under the Securities Act, in reliance, among other exemptions, on the exemptive provisions of Reg A+ under Title IV of the JOBS Act and Regulation D. Similar reliance has been placed on apparently available exemptions from securities registration or qualification requirements under applicable state securities laws. Users must read each Issuer’s offering memorandum and transaction documents for more information and discuss any questions with each Issuer directly prior to investing. No assurance can be given that any offering currently qualifies or will continue to qualify under one or more of such exemptive provisions due to, among other things, the adequacy of disclosure and the manner of distribution, the existence of similar offerings in the past or in the future, or a change of any securities law or regulation that has retroactive effect. No governmental agency has rated the offerings posted on this Site and no state or federal agency has passed upon either the adequacy of the disclosure contained herein or the fairness of the terms of any offering. The exemptions relied upon for such offerings are significantly dependent upon the accuracy of the representations of the Users to be made to the Site and Issuers on the Site in connection with an offering. In the event that any such representations prove to be untrue, the registration exemptions relied upon by an Issuer in selling the securities might not be available and substantial liability to such Issuer would result under applicable securities laws for rescission or damages. These risks are non-exhaustive and are intended to highlight certain risks associated with investing in securities that are not registered with the SEC. WE STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO CONSULT A LEGAL, TAX AND FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE INVESTING, AND CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL THE SPECIFIC RISK DISCLOSURES PROVIDED AS PART OF ANY OFFERING MATERIALS AND ASK THE ISSUER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Prometheum’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Prometheum Ember ATS (“PEATS”) receives compensation calculated by reference to the purchase or sale of securities through the Site, receives fixed fees in cash and/or securities of an issuer for services provided for live offerings and through other revenue generating events. Prometheum does not currently charge fees for companies that are “testing the waters” but may apply fees in the future. PEATS is a registered broker-dealer and does not offer investment advice or advise on the raising of capital through securities offerings. Prometheum does not recommend or otherwise suggest that any investor make an investment in a particular offering.

By written notice to Prometheum, you may revoke your consent to electronic delivery of communications and receive a hard copy/paper version at your election. Upon receipt of such written notice, Prometheum shall have a reasonable period to effect such a change and Prometheum may charge you a fee for sending such hard copies. If you elect to use electronic delivery, you agree and represent that you have a suitable computer with internet access, an email address and the availability to download, save and print communications so as to retain a record of such communications.
