1 The Company will accept investments by employee benefit plans subject to ERISA, including Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). ERISA rules state that, unless exempt, when benefit plans own twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the total value of any class of Interests offered by the Company, the Interests may be deemed a “Plan Asset”, which could subject the Company to additional fiduciary responsibilities, independent auditing, and reporting requirements. Organizations exempt from United States federal income tax under section 501(a) of the Code are subject to the tax on unrelated business taxable income (“UBTI”) imposed by Section 511 of the Code. While the Company does not anticipate generating a substantial amount of UBTI for any Member, there can be no assurance in this regard. Due to the risks involved in the ownership of real estate, there is no guarantee of any return on investment.
