This statement is to inform the investor registered on our platform “www.fundnel.com” operated by Funnel Technologies Sdn Bhd ("Platform"), that there are risks involved in placing an investment in a company (“Issuer”) that has provided information about such investment on this Platform operated by the Platform.. Should you choose to place such investment through the Platform, you will have done this of your own volition and without relying on any information on this Platform, other than the information provided by the Issuer. If you are unsure about any aspect of the information provided by the Issuer, you should seek advice from an independent financial advisor, legal counsel or similar professional before using this Platform and investing in the Issuer.
You should carefully consider whether this investment is suitable for you in light of your knowledge and experience in financial and business matters, investment objectives, financial means and the risks that you are prepared to take.
The following list of risk factors is not intended to be exhaustive, nor a comprehensive explanation of the risks involved.
There is a high risk that you may lose all your money on such investments. Investments available through this platform/facility may include the shares or debt securities of early-stage companies or companies without a proven track record. The risk of business failure is high. There is therefore a high risk that you may lose 100% of your investment. If an Issuer you invest in fails, neither the Issuer nor the Platform will pay back your investment.
You should note that an investment in an Issuer is subject to market conditions and there can be no assurance that any appreciation in value will occur. The value of investments and the income from them can fluctuate and may fall and there is no certainty that an investor will get back any part of his investment. Any investment made in an Issuer should be viewed as a long term and illiquid investment.
Your interests are unsecured and ranked subordinate to the interests of all creditors. In the event that an Issuer becomes unable to meet its debts as they fall due, you may realize less than your original investment.
The price which you may realize for your investments and the timing of any such realization may be influenced by a large number of factors, some of which are specific to the investment and others of which are extraneous. Your ability to sell shares may be limited based on the terms of your investment with other Investors, and will depend on there being a willing buyer for such shares at an acceptable price. Furthermore, shares in Issuers are not and will not be listed on a recognised market in the short to medium term and a secondary market in such shares is not expected to develop in the short term. Consequently, it may be difficult or even impossible for you to cash in on or exit such investments.
In addition, you may not receive a dividend. In addition, if the shares are unpaid or partly paid, you will still be liable to pay the remaining amount to the Issuer.
You may not have sufficient information to make fully informed investment decisions. There is no statutory obligation for issuers to provide you with information that you would require to make informed assessments of offers being made to you.
Generally, the audited financial statements of the Issuer is required to be disclosed by an Issuer on our Platform if the issuer is raising over RM 500,000. However, such requirement may not be applicable to an issuer which is newly incorporated less than twelve (12) months. As such, the financial information presented to you may not have been ascertained by a qualified professional auditor. In other words, an unaudited financial statement may not accurately reflect the financial health of an Issuer and without a proper statutory audit.
Any (direct or indirect) investment you make in an Issuer on the Platform is likely to be subject to dilution. This means that if the Issuer raises additional capital at a later date, it will issue new shares in the Issuer to the new or existing investors, and the percentage of the shares of the Issuer that you (directly or indirectly) own may decline even if your (direct or indirect) absolute number of shares in the Issuer remains the same.
The new shares may also have certain preferential rights to dividends, sale proceeds and other matters, and the exercise of these rights may work to your disadvantage. Your investment may also be subject to dilution as a result of the grant of options (or similar rights to acquire shares) to employees of, service providers to, or certain other parties connected with, the Issuer.
Some Issuers are recently formed entities and have no substantive operating history upon which prospective investors can evaluate likely performance.
The success of many Issuers will depend in part upon the ability of their directors/promoters to develop and maintain a strategy that achieves the Issuer's investment objectives.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. You should not rely on any past performance as a guarantee of future investment performance. Forecasts may also not be a reliable indicator of future performance.
None of the information presented by the Issuer and/or the Platform is intended to form the basis for any offer or recommendation, or have any regard to the investment objectives, financial situation or needs of any specific person. No reliance may be placed for any purpose on the information provided or the accuracy or completeness thereof and no responsibility can be accepted by the Platform to anyone for any action taken on the basis of such information. Such information should not be assumed to be specifically suitable for reliance by you without you first verifying the same with your independent advisers on your specific suitability for your specific financial needs and objectives.
