Disclaimer: Commonwealth Thoroughbreds LLC is “testing the waters” to gauge market demand from potential investors for an offering of its units of ownership interest under Tier II of Regulation A. No money or other consideration is being solicited, and if sent in response, it will not be accepted.
No sales of securities will be made or commitment to purchase accepted until qualification of the offering statement by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and approval of any other required government or regulatory agency. An indication of interest made by a prospective investor is non-binding and involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.
No offer to buy securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received before an Offering Statement has been qualified by the SEC, and any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of its acceptance is given after the qualification date. Prospective investors are urged to carefully review the Offering Statement once qualified. You may obtain a copy of our current Preliminary Offering Circular here.
Securities are offered to investors through Dalmore Group, LLC, a registered Broker-Dealer, and member of FINRA and SIPC, with which Commonwealth Markets Inc. has partnered.
These private investments are highly illiquid and carry the risk of complete loss of invested capital and are not suitable for all investors.
Investors are able to acquire membership interests in a series of Commonwealth Thoroughbreds, a Delaware series limited liability company, via the Commonwealth Thoroughbreds app (the “App”). The use of the word “Unit” in any Communication refers to membership interests in a series of Commonwealth Thoroughbreds (a “Series”). Each offering of Units in each Series of the Company is referred to as an “Offering” and is subject to an offering circular (the “Offering Circular”). A copy of the most recent version of the Offering Circular may be obtained (1) via the App, (2) by contacting the Company at 1450 North Broadway, Lexington, Kentucky 40505, calling (859) 977-0124, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or (3) accessing online via the SEC’s EDGAR service.
The Company is structured as a Delaware series limited liability company that issues different Series of Units specific to one or more thoroughbred assets (“Series Assets”). Each Series of Units is not a separate legal entity, but is intended to segregate assets, liabilities, profits and taxes pertaining to the Series Asset from each other Series of Units (which may own other assets). Each Offering entitles a person to acquire an ownership interest in a Series of the Company and not, for the avoidance of doubt, in (i) the Company, (ii) any other Series of the Company other than the Series of Units subject to the Offering at that time, (iii) Commonwealth Markets, Inc. (the “Manager”), (iv) the App or (v) any Series Asset held by each Series of the Company.
Each Offering is being conducted (i) under Tier II of Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), (ii) only through an Offering Circular and (iii) exclusively through a broker-dealer registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation and other necessary state or other regulators, and only in such states where the broker-dealer is registered. Units are being offered and sold to “qualified investors” under Tier II of Regulation A under the Securities Act, pursuant to an Offering Circular as qualified by the SEC. Even so, each investor must rely on its own examination of the Company, the Series, the Units and the Series Asset and the terms of the Offering, including the risks and merits involved, before making any investment.
From time to time, the Company will conduct “testing the waters” campaigns to gauge market demand from potential investors for an Offering under Tier II of Regulation A of the Securities Act. No money or other consideration will be solicited, and if sent in response, it will not be accepted. No sales of securities will be made or commitment to purchase accepted until qualification of the Offering Circular by the SEC and approval of any other required government or regulatory agency. An indication of interest made by a prospective investor is non-binding and involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.
Any offer to buy securities may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of its acceptance is given after the qualification date. No offer to buy securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received without an Offering Circular that has been qualified by the SEC, which we urge prospective investors to read carefully. A copy of the most recent version of the Offering Circular may be obtained (1) via the App, (2) by contacting the Company at 1450 North Broadway, Lexington, Kentucky 40505, calling (859) 977-0124, or emailing email@example.com, or (3) accessing online via the SEC’s EDGAR service.
No Offering is being made in any jurisdiction where such an offer or solicitation is not lawful or is prohibited or where the broker-dealer, through whom each Offering is being conducted, is not registered. Each Offering of the Units is made pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and certain state securities laws. The Company is not required to file periodic reports (such as reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q) with the SEC, so there is little publicly available information about its business, assets, liabilities, results of operations and other information that would typically be available regarding publicly traded securities. The Company is not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”) and the Units do not have the benefit of the protections of the Investment Company Act. Furthermore, the Manager is not registered as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Advisers Act”), and the members of the Company will not have the benefit of the protections of the Investment Advisers Act.
Neither the SEC nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Units nor have any of the foregoing passed upon or endorsed the merits of an Offering or the accuracy or adequacy of any of the Offering Circular or any Communication. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.
There is no trading market for the Units at this time and there can be no assurance that such a market will develop in the foreseeable future. The Units may not be resold or otherwise disposed of by an investor unless there are available exemptions from registration under federal and applicable state securities laws (and other requirements are met, which may include an opinion of counsel), or such transfer is made in compliance with the registration requirements of such laws. Accordingly, investors must bear the risk of loss for an indefinite period of time.
An investment in Units may involve significant risks. Only investors who can bear the economic risk of the investment for an indefinite period of time and the loss of their entire investment should invest in the Units. See “Risk Factors” below and in the Offering Circular.
No offeree will be accepted as a subscriber who does not make the representations set forth in the subscription agreement accompanying the Offering Circular, including, that the investment amount does not exceed 10% of the offeree’s net worth or annual income. Investors also will be required to represent that they are familiar with and understand the terms of each relevant Offering, among other things. Investors may also be required to provide additional information to verify their identity or investor status.
The Units will not be offered or sold to prospective investors subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and regulations thereunder, as amended (“ERISA”).
Notice to Foreign Investors
The Communication is directed solely to persons located within the United States. If the recipient of the Communication lives outside the United States, it is their responsibility to fully observe the laws of any relevant territory or jurisdiction outside the United States in connection with any purchase of Units, including obtaining required governmental or other consents or observing any other required legal or other formalities.
Each Offering of Units is highly speculative in nature, involves a high degree of risk and should be purchased only by persons who can afford to lose their entire investment. The investments in any Offering are not bank deposits (and thus not insured by the FDIC or by any other federal governmental agency), are not guaranteed by Commonwealth Markets, Commonwealth Thoroughbreds or any third-party broker-dealer and may lose value. All prospective investors should consult the Risk Factors located in the Offering Circular before purchasing Units in a Series of the Company.
Third Party Information and Past Performance
Certain information, including statistical data, third-party quotes and other factual statements, contained in the Communication has been obtained from published sources prepared by other parties considered to be generally reliable. However, none of the Company, the Manager or any affiliate of the Manager or any of their respective directors, shareholders, members, officers, employees or agents assumes any responsibility for the accuracy of such information. There is no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy, adequateness or completeness of any such information used in the Communication.
Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results of the interests or the assets in a given Series. Furthermore, to the extent the Communication relates to prior performance of assets similar to a Series Asset acquired or to be acquired by the Company, those similar assets may be materially different from the assets acquired or to be acquired by the Company.
Furthermore, the value of Units in a Series of the Company may materially differ from the value of the Series Asset for many reasons, including market factors, fees, and restrictions on liquidity.
The information contained in the Communication including the Company’s Offering Circular may include some statements that are not historical and that are considered “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act. Such forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to: statements regarding the development plans for the Company’s business; its strategies and business outlook; it’s market sector; anticipated development of the Company, the Manager and the App; and various other matters (including contingent liabilities and obligations and changes in accounting policies, standards and interpretations). These forward-looking statements typically express the Manager’s expectations, hopes, beliefs, and intentions regarding the future. In addition, without limiting the foregoing, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipates”, “believes”, “continue”, “could”, “estimates”, “expects”, “intends”, “may”, “might”, “plans”, “possible”, “potential”, “predicts”, “projects”, “seeks”, “should”, “will”, “would” and similar expressions and variations, or comparable terminology, or the negatives of any of the foregoing, may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.
Any forward-looking statements contained in the Communication will be based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments that are difficult to predict. Neither the Company nor the Manager can guarantee future performance, or that future developments affecting the Company, the Manager or the App will be as currently anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, including those risks set forth in “Risk Factors” Section of the Offering Circular.
All forward-looking statements attributable to the Company are expressly qualified in their entirety by these risks and uncertainties. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the parties’ assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. The recipient of the Communication should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and should not make an investment decision based solely on forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.
