A PPM Investment (commonly referred to as a private placement or unregistered offering) is a security offering that does not need to be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
A private placement investment is different than one offered publicly because only a vetted group of (often accredited) investors may participate in the funding round. These types of private offerings have several advantages over public offerings and are considered widely popular among businesses who need to raise capital quickly to scale their operations.
Semantics causes much confusion around PPMs. Many refer to the term “PPM” as an actual investment. However, PPM stands for Private Placement Memorandum. The Memorandum is the document that discloses and explains the background of a company, along with the structure of the offering. The private placement, however, is the actual investment.
An offering Memorandum is a document that explains the background of a company that is taking on investors. This document will usually have four parts to it: a high-level business plan, risks, deal terms, and a capitalization report.
Whether or not you need a PPM to raise money depends on the type of fund registration. Generally, offerings taking on non-accredited investors and are over 5 million dollars will require a PPM.
Fundraising money will typically be held by a qualified custodian (AET) in order to mitigate risk of loss, theft, or fraudulent activity.
