Your Opportunity to own a Strategic Shareholding in SMATS Group & Griffin Group
Directors of SMATS Group and Griffin Group, Steve Douglas and Greg Devine, are delighted to offer you the opportunity to become part of our exciting future.
A small group of wholesale investors are invited to become part owners of the global company, GPS Strategic Pty Ltd (GPS).
GPS is a future merger of established international businesses, SMATS Group and Griffin Group which is taking the steps to become a listed company on the ASX.
Early-stage investors in GPS via a Convertible Note will:
- Receive 16% p.a. bonus shares upon a conversion event and your election to convert your notes to shares; and
- Earn 4% p.a. interest prior to a conversion event paid quarterly.
The money raised from the Convertible Notes will fund growth strategies to expand GPS’s service offerings and grow the groups’ distribution base.
What is a Convertible Note?
The Convertible Note is a hybrid security with debt- and equity-like features.
The Convertible Note typically starts off as a loan and pays interest per annum to the investor prior to a conversion event.
The Convertible Note may be converted into shares into the issuing company or repaid in full at the expiry of its term or earlier if there is a conversion event.
Why am I being invited to be part of this unique opportunity?
This exclusive opportunity is only available to personally selected wholesale clients of SMATS Group and Griffin Group that have been pivotal in building the companies to date.
The Convertible Note offers a rare opportunity for a select group of private investors to become a strategic shareholder in SMATS Group and Griffin Group and become part of the future growth strategy.
Why are SMATS Group and Griffin Group launching the Convertible Note offer?
After many years of successfully growing their respective businesses, the Directors of SMATS Group and Griffin Group, wish to open their businesses to public ownership and raise capital for expansion.
The funds raised will facilitate a faster expansion of the Groups’ growth plans than would otherwise be the case, and enable the Groups to benefit through the multiple acquisition or investment opportunities which present themselves in the market. It is important to note that this is not a cash-out exercise.
The initial stage of this is to raise money under this Convertible Note offer to fund a number of growth strategies that the Groups are focusing on and to acquire interests in bolt-on companies that complement and add to the existing services that the Groups offer their clients, and to grow the distribution base.
