The Pyramid Project: Investment
The Pyramid Project: Investment Features
Athens West Productions is pleased to announce an opportunity to invest in Phase I of The Pyramid Project. This phase requires a total of $1.44M for R&D in exchange for a 12% profit and a 3% ownership position in each of 5 new related companies. The primary company is of course "Pyramid Project" presented here as the core facility. The other four companies will supply the Pyramid Project with content as well as develop stand alone products for the market. In this way we offer the investor a built in "Mutual Fund" approach to a related yet diversified investment. This section outlines the basic opportunities offered to those who choose to participate in phase I. The chart below is intended to assist you in navigating the the relationship between each company and phase of investment.
The Pyramid Project: Investment Organization Chart
At this time, an LLC will serve as the financial instrument for business and tax purposes. With that in mind, the number of “members/shares” is intended not to exceed 24 with each representing a minimum investment of 60K. Each share therefore equals .5% (1/2 of 1%) of the project profits. Any given member can choose to invest in up to a total of 12 shares equaling 720K. All investments have a passive ownership status and do not support a voting position. Upon completion of an investment transaction, the investor will be entered on the “Order of Investment list (OIL)” and will enjoy the following options:
Safeguards: No funding will be accessed until phase I funding reaches 50% (720K) and all current investors will be exposed to developmental costs on an equal basis.
This phase will reflect executing the design’s pre-site engineering and basic marketing study required to support the creation of a business plan.
Phase 1 will create the following deliverables:
Phase II represents the creation of four additional LLCs that will serve to create content for The Pyramid Project’s facility in addition to developing stand alone product lines.
The number of “members/shares” is TBD and represents a projected total investment of 14M in exchange for a 7% ownership and a 21% profit position. This ownership and profit potion is applied to all 5 LLCs to further diversify investment risk and response to market trends. As previously noted, Phase I investors have the “First Right of Refusal” via the “OIL” order to invest in this phase as a passive owner with no voting position.
At this juncture the project investment ownership and profit position is as follows:
With the completion of phase I & II, the project will formally revisit the financial model that will best serve funding the construction and pilot production of products and programs required to fully engage The Pyramid Project’s potential.
Phase II will create a fully engineered and site specific “Manufacturing Bid Package” and “Franchise Investor Package”. These packages will also serve, as a presentation tool to solicit the funding required to complete phase III of the project.
Phase II will create the following deliverables:
At this juncture, a 22% ownership and a 44% profit position is held in reserve for funding phase III without the intention of diluting the phase I & II investment positions. As before, phase I and II investors will again have”First Right of Refusal” regarding Phase III funding in part or in whole.
Please note with all investments of this nature, it is the sole responsibility of the investor to research and understand the risks and feasibility's of the project’s ability to return the investment and support opportunities for continuing profit.
