An investment is a financial contribution in securities (stocks, promissory notes, bonds), money, and equivalents to gain profit.
MIRAS does not raise funds for companies but provides liquidity to private companies’ shareholders.
All new MIRAS investors, as well as investors participating in five or more trades, have a reduced minimum entry threshold of $ 1,500. Investors participating in more than one but fewer than five trades have a $ 2000 entry threshold. It should be noted that the minimum investment of $ 1500 is not available for all offers. Details are indicated in the corresponding offer.
Usually, the one-time commission fee is charged for the sale of securities using MIRAS, which depends on the size of the investment.
When investing up to $ 500,000 dollars, a 5% commission is charged; from $500,000 to $ 1 million – 4%; $1 million and above – 3%. For instance, with $ 50,000 investments, the commission is 5%, so you will need to deposit $ 52,500. The fee structure remains unchanged for all investors.
MIRAS offers direct share purchase and investments of one or many companies at once. Investments can be structured in different ways.
Investment fund: investors get access to acquiring assets of a particular company through the MIRAS investment tool (fund). In this case, the investor acts as a partner in the equity ownership of shares (not options).
This approach makes it more possible to get shares since companies prefer making one entry in the capitalization table rather than many for single private investors.
Client’s trust fund: as in the case mentioned above, the investor also acts as a partner in equity ownership, only in this case, the portion of shares in the fund belong to several companies at once.
Direct acquisition of shares: investors own shares directly, and after purchasing through MIRAS, they get added to the capitalization table. Such investments require a higher volume of transactions and the shareholder’s participation in interaction with the company.
According to the legal norms, an investor cannot see any offers posted before joining the investment platform. Therefore, you must pass the verification, credit your account, and make a portfolio with your manager, who can assist you with any questions you may have.
In this case, the investor can always search for companies and leave a request for the desired purchase amount. If an investment opportunity arises, the investor will receive a message.
In most cases, MIRAS investors acquire a stake in a fund that includes shares in one or more companies. It is indirect ownership of shares but a limited liability partnership in the fund that owns the shares. Such a partnership is equity, and the investor owns shares, not options.
MIRAS acts as a managing member of this fund and is entered into the company’s capitalization table whose shares are acquired.
MIRAS also offers direct share purchase upon investor request. In this case, the investor owns the securities and can transfer them to its depository after the company has become public. Contact MIRAS to find out if you can purchase the shares of the selected company directly.
The sellers are usually current and former employees, early investors, and company consultants. Most frequently, only a part of the assets is sold to cover the costs of taxes or acquisitions.
You can purchase shares directly through MIRAS. However, these are usually significant investments from $1 million and up, depending on the specific company, since investments in private companies at the pre-IPO stage are more complex than buying on the stock exchange. Before all, you must make every transaction through the company. It requires many documents and compliance with the rules established by regulators and the companies.
Our platform is global so that any accredited investor can use it. The international investor must fill out the appropriate form, provide a copy of the passport and proof of residence
We use the latest financing round as a benchmark to evaluate stocks, publicly available information, demand level from investors, price history, etc. MIRAS usually works with a stock seller to determine the price for each investment opportunity.
There is no transparency in the Pre-IPO market as it is in the public market. For instance, there are no financial reports and presentations for investors. Therefore, any available information is used to assess an investment opportunity, including public information and recent investors’ comprehensive audit results.
If we have access to certain companies’ shares, receiving signals of investor interest allows us to start the buying process. As soon as there is enough purchase demand, work on the offer begins.
Investor interest messages help MIRAS prioritize investment destinations and select equity sellers. Only the latest interest messages are viewed, so we recommend updating them regularly.
