MISSION FIRST CAPITAL LLC
Class G or Class L Interest
SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT (the “Subscription Agreement”) made by and between Mission First Capital LLC a Delaware limited liability company (the “Issuer”), and the undersigned (the “Subscriber”).
WHEREAS, pursuant to an Offering Circular dated September 14, 2021 (the “Offering Circular”), the Issuer is offering in a Regulation A offering (the “Offering”) to investors up to 5,000,000 Class G Interests and up to 500,000 Class L Interests (“Interests”) at a purchase price of $50.00 per Unit for a maximum aggregate purchase price of $50,000,000 (the “Maximum Offering”).
WHEREAS, the Subscriber desires to subscribe for the number and class of Interests set forth on the signature page hereof, on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.
NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto do hereby agree as follows:
I. SUBSCRIPTION FOR AND REPRESENTATIONS AND COVENANTS OF SUBSCRIBER
1.1 Subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, the Subscriber hereby subscribes for and agrees to purchase from the Issuer the number of Interests set forth on the signature page hereof, at a price equal to $50.00 per Unit, and the Issuer agrees to sell such Interests to the Subscriber for said purchase price, subject to the Issuer’s right to sell to the Subscriber such lesser number of (or no) Interests as the Issuer may, in its sole discretion, deem necessary or desirable. The purchase price is payable only via Automated Clearing House (ACH) electronic funds transfer payable to the Issuer.
1.2 The Subscriber has full power and authority to enter into and deliver this Subscription Agreement and to perform its/his/her obligations hereunder, and the execution, delivery and performance of this Subscription Agreement has been duly authorized, if applicable, and this Subscription Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of the Subscriber.
1.3 The Subscriber acknowledges receipt of the Offering Circular, all supplements to the Offering Circular, and all other documents furnished in connection with this transaction by the Issuer (collectively, the “Offering Documents”).
1.4 The Subscriber recognizes that the purchase of the Interests involves a high degree of risk in that (i) an investment in the Issuer is highly speculative and only investors who can afford the loss of their entire investment should consider investing in the Issuer and the Interests; (ii) the Interests are being sold pursuant to an exemption under Regulation A issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), but they are not registered under the Act or any state securities law; (iii) there is only a limited trading market for the Interests, and there is no assurance that a more active one will ever develop, and thus, the Subscriber may not be able to liquidate his, her or its investment; and (iv) an investor could suffer the loss of his, her or its entire investment.
1.5 The Subscriber is an “accredited investor,” as such term is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Act, and the Subscriber is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Interests OR the purchase price tendered by Subscriber does not exceed 10% of the greater of the Subscriber’s annual income or net worth.
1.6 The Subscriber is not relying on the Issuer or its affiliates or agents with respect to economic considerations involved in this investment. The Subscriber has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only his, her or its Advisors, if any. Each Advisor, if any, is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Interests as such are described in the Offering Circular, and each Advisor, if any, has disclosed to the Subscriber in writing (a copy of which is annexed to this Subscription Agreement) the specific details of any and all past, present or future relationships, actual or contemplated, between the Advisor and the Issuer.
1.7 The Subscriber has prior investment experience (including investment in non-listed and non-registered securities), has (together with his, her or its Advisors, if any) such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment in the Interests and has read and evaluated, or has employed the services of an investment advisor, attorney or accountant to read and evaluate, all of the documents furnished or made available by the Issuer to the Subscriber, including the Offering Circular, as well as the merits and risks of such an investment by the Subscriber. The Subscriber’s overall commitment to investments, which are not readily marketable, is not disproportionate to the Subscriber’s net worth, and the Subscriber’s investment in the Interests will not cause such overall commitment to become excessive. The Subscriber, if an individual, has adequate means of providing for his or her current needs and personal and family contingencies and has no need for liquidity in his or her investment in the Interests. The Subscriber is financially able to bear the economic risk of this investment, including the ability to afford holding the Interests for an indefinite period or a complete loss of this investment. If other than an individual, the Subscriber also represents it has not been organized solely for the purpose of acquiring the Interests.
1.8 The Subscriber acknowledges that any estimates or forward-looking statements or projections included in the Offering Circular were prepared by the management of the Issuer in good faith, but that the attainment of any such projections, estimates or forward-looking statements cannot be guaranteed by the Issuer, its management or its affiliates and should not be relied upon.
1.9 The Subscriber acknowledges that the purchase of the Interests may involve tax consequences to the Subscriber and that the contents of the Offering Documents do not contain tax advice. The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber must retain his, her or its own professional Advisors to evaluate the tax and other consequences to the Subscriber of an investment in the Interests. The Subscriber acknowledges that it is the responsibility of the Subscriber to determine the appropriateness and the merits of a corporate entity to own the Subscriber’s Interests and the corporate structure of such entity.
1.10 The Subscriber acknowledges that the Offering Circular and this Offering have not been reviewed by the SEC or any state securities commission, and that no federal or state agency has made any finding or determination regarding the fairness or merits of the Offering or confirmed the accuracy or determined the adequacy of the Offering Circular. Any representation to the contrary is a crime.
1.11 The Subscriber represents, warrants and agrees that the Interests are being purchased for his, her or its own beneficial account and not with a view toward distribution or resale to others. The Subscriber understands that the Issuer is under no obligation to register the Interests on his, her or its behalf or to assist them in complying with any exemption from registration under applicable state securities laws.
1.12 The Subscriber understands that the Interests have not been registered under the Act by reason of a claimed exemption under the provisions of the Act which depends, in part, upon his, her or its investment intention. The Subscriber realizes that, in the view of the SEC, a purchase with an intent to resell would represent a purchase with an intent inconsistent with his, her or its representation to the Issuer, and the SEC might regard such a sale or disposition as a deferred sale, for which such exemption is not available. The Subscriber does not have any such intentions.
1.13 The Subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold the Issuer, its directors, officers and controlling persons and their respective heirs, representatives, successors and assigns harmless against all liabilities, costs and expenses incurred by them as a result of any misrepresentation made by the Subscriber herein or as a result of any sale or distribution by the Subscriber in violation of the Act (including, without limitation, the rules promulgated thereunder), any state securities laws, or the Issuer’s governing documents, as amended from time to time.
1.14 The Subscriber understands that the Issuer will review and rely on this Subscription Agreement without making any independent investigation; and it is agreed that the Issuer reserves the unrestricted right to reject or limit any subscription and to withdraw the Offering at any time.
1.15 The Subscriber hereby represents that the address of the Subscriber furnished at the end of this Subscription Agreement is the Subscriber’s principal residence, if the Subscriber is an individual, or its principal business address, if it is a corporation or other entity.
1.16 The Subscriber acknowledges that if the Subscriber is a Registered Representative of a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) member firm, the Subscriber must give such firm the notice required by FINRA’s Conduct Rules, receipt of which must be acknowledged by such firm on the signature page hereof.
1.17 The Subscriber hereby acknowledges that neither the Issuer nor any persons associated with the Issuer who may provide assistance or advice in connection with the Offering are or are expected to be members or associated persons of members of FINRA or registered broker-dealers under any federal or state securities laws.
1.18 The Subscriber hereby represents that, except as expressly set forth in the Offering Documents, no representations or warranties have been made to the Subscriber by the Issuer or by any agent, sub-agent, officer, employee or affiliate of the Issuer and, in entering into this transaction, the Subscriber is not relying on any information other than that contained in the Offering Documents and the results of independent investigation by the Subscriber.
1.19 No oral or written representations have been made, or oral or written information furnished, to the Subscriber or his, her or its Advisors, if any, in connection with the offering of the Interests which are in any way inconsistent with the information contained in the Offering Documents.
1.20 All information provided by the Subscriber in the Investor Questionnaire attached to this Subscription Agreement is true and accurate in all respects, and the Subscriber acknowledges that the Issuer will be relying on such information to its possible detriment in deciding whether the Issuer can sell these securities to the Subscriber without giving rise to the loss of the exemption from registration under applicable securities laws.
1.21 The Subscriber is unaware of, is in no way relying on, and did not become aware of the offering of the Interests through or as a result of, any form of general solicitation or general advertising including, without limitation, any article, notice, advertisement or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or electronic mail over the Internet, in connection with the offering and sale of the Interests and is not subscribing for Interests and did not become aware of the offering of the Interests through or as a result of any seminar or meeting to which the Subscriber was invited by, or any solicitation of a subscription by, a person not previously known to the Subscriber in connection with investments in securities generally.
1.22 The Subscriber has taken no action which would give rise to any claim by any person for brokerage commissions, finders, fees or the like relating to this Subscription Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
1.23 The Subscriber is not relying on the Issuer, or any of its employees, agents or sub-agents with respect to the legal, tax, economic and related considerations of an investment in the Interests, and the Subscriber has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only his, her or its own Advisors, if any.
1.24 (For ERISA plans only) The fiduciary of the ERISA plan (the “Plan”) represents that such fiduciary has been informed of and understands the Issuer’s business objectives, policies and strategies, and that the decision to invest “plan assets” (as such term is defined in ERISA) in the Issuer is consistent with the provisions of ERISA that require diversification of plan assets and impose other fiduciary responsibilities. The subscriber or Plan fiduciary (a) is responsible for the decision to invest in the Issuer; (b) is independent of the Issuer and any of its affiliates; (c) is qualified to make such investment decision; and (d) in making such decision, the subscriber or Plan fiduciary has not relied primarily on any advice or recommendation of the Issuer or any of its affiliates or its agents.
1.25 The foregoing representations, warranties and agreements shall survive the Closing.
