How you make money
You make money through when an action event occurs, such as the company getting acquired or the company going public. You do not have control of when that happens, but you are provided discounted investments due to the shares being employee held. Since employees are asking for exercise cost funding for options that have already vested and since options take at least one year to vest, the investment is made a price that was set in the past (typically 1-5 years before the investment is made). If the company is growing, that means your entry point may be lower than the current price. Employee stock options are options for common shares, which are priced at a significant discount vs. preferred shares external investors typically buy.
How EquityBee makes money
Investors pay a 5% upfront fee of the price of your investment plus 5% carry on any profits they made in excess of their original investment amount.
Is it Safe?
EquityBee executes SOFAs (Simple Options Financing Agreements), which contain substantial risk and may result in the complete loss of capital to the investor. The SOFAs are speculative, illiquid, as they are not publicly traded and there is no secondary market. Securities offered through North Capital Private Securities Corporation, member FINRA/SIPC.
