NCL specializes in three major industry sectors: Real Estate, Green Living and Natural Resources.
The majority of our investment opportunities are private placements. These investments normally involve purchasing shares directly from a company, and holding those shares for the mandatory four-month minimum under securities regulatory statutes.
Not all investment opportunities are right for all clients. NCL takes the time to understand each client’s individual needs and objectives. This allows us to tailor products presented to each client, and enables the client selection of appropriate investments.
Real estate markets can be challenging. In some parts of the world prices are strong while weak in others. NCL provides clients with well-researched and favorable risk-return REIT opportunities that offer stable cash flow and prudent risk management.
We are now living in the green era. Organic foods and healthy lifestyles have become of higher importance in our daily living. NCL forecasts growth in the area of Organic farming, renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage and green building.
The organic food market alone is described by industry analysts as the most dynamic and rapidly growing sector of the global food industry. Today the global market for organic products, once a small scale niche market, reached a value of close to $63 Billion in year 2011 (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements).
Mining and natural resource companies are the backbone of the Canadian stock market, and Canada has a favorable investment and regulatory climate for raising capital and bringing these types of opportunities to the investing public. NCL has extensive experience working with companies in this sector to raise capital and generate market awareness. We conduct detailed property assessments,, consult with geologists, and perform site visits to maximize our project knowledge. This gives clients and investors several key benefits for investment and expansion.
Private placements are offerings by companies that are not available to the general public. Accredited investors are able to purchase shares directly from the company often to help finance expansion or further exploration. These shares are typically subject to a four-month hold period, after which they may be sold on the stock exchange.
Another key benefit of private placements is warrants. Warrants allow shareholders to acquire shares in the issuing company at a set price for a predetermined period of time. For example, an investor may buy shares in a private placement at $0.50 per share, and receive a warrant allowing the investor to purchase an additional share for $0.75 at any time during the next 24-months. If the shares rise to $1.50 on the open market, the investor still has the ability to purchase shares for $0.75. If the share price fell, or failed to breech the $0.75 level, the warrant would expire worthless.
Two forms of Private Placements that NCL specializes with are Flow Through Shares and standard equity financing's.
Flow Throughs (Tax-advantaged Investments)
Flow through shares are a tax-advantaged investment, commonly found in the Canadian natural resource sector. Flow through shares are most appealing and tend to benefit taxpayers in the highest marginal tax bracket, allowing them to reduce their taxable income and receive refundable or non-refundable tax-credits depending on provincial residency.
Flow through shares are very common in the mining industry, but have also been used in other sectors spanning from technology, entertainment and various others.
