Minimum Investment Amount:
R1 million. Smaller investments may be considered and approved by the Board, provided that investment is by invitation only, only available to qualifying investors and not an offer to the Public to subscribe for shares.
Minimum 5 years | Investors may sell shares within 5 years, but such a sale will result in a recoupment of the Section 12J Tax benefit previously claimed. In addition, all sales will be regulated in terms of the waterfall approach prescribed by the Class 28 Subscription Agreement.
A Structured Loan is available to qualifying investors to fund up to 80% of their Subscription Prices for the Class 27 Investor Shares. The main objective of the Structured Loan is to enable Investors to settle their Structured Loans as quickly as possible and within 5 years from the initial investment date, even while paying a monthly instalment similar to a traditional 20 year mortgage bond. Investors participating by way of the Structured Loan should therefore take note that they will contribute an additional balloon payment (which may be funded by way of the SARS Section 12J Benefit or otherwise) within 6 months and that all dividends and distributions from the investment will be used to pay off any outstanding debt (after Withholding taxes have been paid to SARS). A final balloon payment is only due should a shortfall and outstanding balance on the loan still be due before the end of the 5 year investment period. Details of the Structured Loan is presented in a separate Loan Agreement entered into between each Investor and the NCR Registered Finance Provider

- Performance: 20% of Super Profits realised for Investors as defined in the PPM.
Exit options after 5 years:
At the end of 5 years, shareholders will have the following 3 exit options:
- Options 1: Exit for cash (final cash dividend or buy-back of shares)
- Option 2: Exit by way of a distribution in specie. This simply means that investors with a share value greater than the value of an individual unit, may be distributed a unit as a dividend in specie. The exiting Investors should however take note that they must remain part of the hotel rental pool after exit.
- Option 3: Remain invested and retain shareholding similar to that of a “fractional ownership” structure, with the continued benefits of owning a share in a hotel, earning ongoing dividend income and having the additional other benefits previously described.
Investors should also note that the Directors endeavour to take all the necessary steps to enable investors to exercise any of the three options above, but that such exit options are not guaranteed. Investors should further take note than on exiting a 12J Structure, Capital Gains Tax or Dividends Tax may apply (as the case may be), while the base cost of their investment will be deemed to be zero for Capital Gains Tax purposes. The Directors endeavour to consult with Investor Shareholders closer to the time, and present the most appropriate and cost and tax efficient Exit options and to work close with the Investor Shareholders to execute such options.
Should the investors choose option 3 above, no exit tax will apply, while fees will be reduced as per the PPM.
