5. Investing via Lendahand
5.1 Investments take place via the Lendahand Website by means of the purchase of one or more Bonds. On the Lendahand Website, the Propositions will be placed, for which an Investor can subscribe. A Proposition comes into being by an Investment Request (i) of an Entrepreneur to an Issuing Entity that assesses the Investment Request and if it complies with the criteria set thereto, forwards it to Lendahand, or (ii) a direct request of an Entrepreneur being the Issuing Entity that complies with the criteria set by Lendahand. Lendahand shall place the Proposition subsequently on the Lendahand Website, after which Investors can subscribe to the Bonds belonging to a certain Proposition.
The credit risk differs per Bond, because credit profile of each Issuing Entity is different.
5.2 A Proposition contains in any case the following information: the investment proposal, the Investment amount, information about the Issuing Entity (and/or information about the Entrepreneur and the enterprise connected to it) and the tenor of the Investment.
5.3 A Proposition shall be open for subscriptions during a maximum of 60 (sixty) days, to be counted from the Publication date, on the Lendahand Website. If during this term the Investment amount required for the Proposition has been achieved by means of the payment of the (conditional) Purchase Price by the (various) Investor(s), then the Proposition shall be closed. Investor must pay the Purchase Price directly, meaning on the moment that Investor has selected a Proposition and desired Investment amount on the Lendahand Website. If, with regard to a Proposition, the full Investment amount is received from Investors by the Payment Institution for the Issuing Entity for the benefit of the concerned Bonds to be issued, then, in accordance with article 5.10 the Investment amount and its interest bearing from the first day following the month in which the Bond Loan for the benefit of a Proposition has fully been paid up. If a Proposition will be executed, the Issuing Entity shall make a capital investment in the Entrepreneur for the height of the Investment amount.
5.4 The tenor of an Investment is 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 or 48 months to be counted from the Interest Date. The Issuing Entity pays instalments on the relevant Bonds in equal portions every six months, by way of crediting (i) (a part of) the nominal value of the Bond and (ii) the Interest.
5.5 If the Investor has stated that the amount administered on the Account must be transferred by the Payment Institution, after receipt by the Payment Institution, to a bank account made known by the Investor, then the Payment Institution shall transfer the corresponding amount of the Issuing Entity no later than within 1 (one) Working Day after receipt of the funds in the wallet of the Investor, to this bank account.
5.6. If the Investor has stated that the amount administered on the Account must remain on the Account after receipt by the Payment Institution, the Payment Institution will leave the corresponding amount after receipt of the funds in the wallet of the Investor, but never any longer than the Payment Institution is legally authorised to retain the funds in the wallet.
5.7 You can execute, as an Investor, only Investments via the Lendahand Website if you have registered and opened an Account.
5.8 You invest by subscription to a Proposition (Chosen Proposition). Subscription means that you purchase one or more Bonds, with which you also accept the Bond conditions. Before you agree with the content of the Bond conditions, you can view the Bond conditions and you can store these on a sustainable information carrier. The purchase of the Bonds can only emerge if you are logged in and after login follow the steps that have been represented on the Lendahand Website.
5.9 Bonds will be issued in series which each correspond with a Proposition. The Bonds will be delivered by the Issuing Entity upon issue to Lendahand that maintains per sort of Bonds a Collective Depot as intermediary in the sense of the Dutch Law WGE. The Interest to be received by you is dependent on the Terms and Conditions of the Bond in which you invest. On the Lendahand Website you will find up-to-date information regarding the various Propositions and Bonds. If you invest, then on each Bond the agreed interest percentage belonging to the Proposition will be applicable. All Interest is on an annual basis.
5.10 A Bond will be acquired on the moment of subscription, after payment of the Purchase Price. Issue of Bonds takes place in accordance with these Terms and Conditions and under applicability of the Bond conditions. The Bonds are not convertible and not listed on the stock exchange. The Bond will be interest bearing per the Interest Date. The Issuing Entity pays out the interest afterward per the Interest period on the Interest payment date.
5.11 Lendahand reserves, also on behalf of the Issuing Entity, explicitly the right to refuse or not to execute, without statement of reasons, a subscription. From this, Investors can derive no rights.
5.12 The Bonds form direct and unconditional obligations of the Issuing Entity that mutually and with regard to each other per separate Issuing Entity, are of equal order, without any difference in preference. The Investors are furthermore of equal rank with all present and future creditors of the respective Issuing Entity in whose Bonds they have invested, except for preferred creditors and except for the local rules that apply for the concerned Issuing Entity.
5.13 In case of dissolution or bankruptcy or suspension of payment of an Issuing Entity will be established further to the law of the country of the Issuing Entity how the Investors of the Bonds issued by the concerned Issuing Entity will be treated with regard to other creditors of the Issuing Entity. You must take into account that the applicable law regarding dissolution, suspension of payment or bankruptcy can materially deviate from the legal system of the Netherlands. This means that the enforceability of your position as a holder of one or more Bonds that have been issued by the concerned Issuing Entity is not established directly under the laws of the country of the Issuing Entity.
5.14 Unless redeemed earlier, such as established in the Bond conditions, the Issuing Entity will redeem the Bonds on the Redemption Date. Redemption shall in principle take place in a linear manner on a half year basis. Redemption takes place each time per Bond. You can claim back the amount that you have invested via the Lendahand Website on no moment whatsoever from the Issuing Entity, except for on basis of the possibilities given thereto in the Bond conditions.
5.15 Interest and Redemption will be administered in the Account and paid by the Issuing Entity to the Payment Institution that keeps these monies further for the relevant Investors, in compliance with the articles 5.5, 5.6A and 5.6B. In compliance with Article 5.5, the amount administered on the Account and the corresponding amount kept by the Payment Institution, shall be transferred by the Payment Institution to a bank account in the European Economic Area as stated by the Investor, or shall be invested in a new Proposition. In case the amount administered on the Account is in a currency other than the Euro, then the counter value of the amount in Euros shall be transferred. Hereby the selling rate will be applied such as established by the Payment Institution on the day of the administration (or of the previous Working Day if the date of administration otherwise does not fall on a Working Day). Depending on the Terms and Conditions of the Payment Institution, the Investor can maintain the monies for the benefit of a future investment (via the Lendahand Website) with the Payment Institution. The payment of Interest and the Redemption by the Issuing Entity to the Payment Institution shall take place as liberation and discharge for the concerned Issuing Entity.
5.16 When payment must be made by bank transfer into an account on a name, then a payment instruction will be given by Lendahand to the Payment Institution for distribution. This shall be no later than 1 Working Day after the date that the monies have been received on the concerned account of the Payment Institution (the “Payment date”).
Investors have no right to Interest or another payment for delayed receipt of the due amount after the Payment date of the Interest respectively the date of a Redemption.
5.17 The Bonds are transferable in compliance with the stipulations in this Article. The Bonds are in principle solely issued for sale and trading in the Netherlands. Lendahand accepts as holder of the Collective Depots no responsibility or liability regarding a transfer of Bonds outside the Netherlands. Lendahand holds the Bonds under the title of management for the Investors. Investors can transfer their rights in the Collective Depot to other Investors via debiting and crediting in the designated part of the administration of Lendahand. This transfer requires cooperation of Lendahand that it shall reasonably grant. Lendahand shall process a possible transfer in its administration. The administration costs for the process of a transfer of Bonds amount to EUR 0.50 per Bond and will be brought into account by Lendahand to the buyer of the Bond(s). The stipulations in this Article 5.17 are equally applicable to the vesting of a right of lien on Bonds and on the vesting or delivery of a right of usufruct on Bonds.
5.18 On the Lendahand Website will be administered for which amount is subscribed to on a certain Proposition. Each time when an Investor has invested, shall this therefore be visible for each visitor of the Lendahand Website. On the moment that an Investor however makes use of his/her right of dissolution (such as referred to in Article 6.4), the amount that represents the dissolved Agreement shall be deducted from the amount that is represented on the Lendahand Website. This means, that in case you have executed an Investment and have purchased in the framework thereof one or more Bonds under suspending condition, the invested amount represented on the moment of the closure of Bonds on the Lendahand Website, can be reduced after the purchase of the Bonds if you make use of your right of dissolution or if the subscription will not be unconditional because the target amount of the Chosen Proposition will not be achieved and the invested amount will be held for you by the Payment Institution.
5.19 The Investments executed by you via the Lendahand Website, you execute for your own account and risk. Lendahand points out that you, in prevalent instances can therefore entirely lose the amount invested by you, for instance in case of the insolvency of the Issuing Entity, or in case the Issuing Entity fails to pay for other reasons. Your Investment does not lead to any form of control in the Issuing Entity and/or the Entrepreneur.
5.20 As an Investor, you are aware that the Issuing Entity and the Entrepreneur are not under supervision of the Dutch ' Autoriteit Financiële Markten' or the Dutch Central Bank. The total corresponding value of the Bonds which are offered per Issuing Institution is less than EUR 5,000,000, calculated over a period of 12 (twelve) months and the Issuing Institution therefore is not (while making adequate use of the correct reporting of exemptions (wild-west category as termed by the financial monitor AFM)) subject to the obligation to publish a prospectus in connection with the issue of Bonds. The maximum of EUR 5,000,000 per Issuing institution may be raised in the future if it is legally permitted.
5.21 There is no warranty that you shall achieve any benefit from your Investment. The Bonds concern products with a high risk. You are aware of these risks.
