Guidance On Accredited Investor Exemptions for Individuals

 

An individual accredited investor is an individual:

 

(a)           who, either alone or with a spouse, beneficially owns financial assets (please see the guidance below regarding what financial assets are) having an aggregate realizable value that. before taxes but net of any related liabilities (please see the guidance below regarding what related liabilities are), exceeds $1,000,000;

 

(b)           whose net income before taxes exceeded $200,000 in each of the 2 most recent calendar years or whose net income before taxes combined with that of a spouse exceeded $300,000 in each of the 2 most recent calendar years and who, in either case, reasonably expects to exceed that net income level in the current calendar year;

 

(c)           who, either alone or with a spouse, has net assets (please see the guidance below regarding calculating net assets) of at least $5,000,000; and

 

(d)           who beneficially owns financial assets (please see the guidance below regarding what financial assets are) having an aggregate realizable value that, before taxes but net of any related liabilities (please see the guidance below regarding what related liabilities are), exceeds $5,000,000.

 

The monetary thresholds above are intended to create bright-line standards. Subscribers who do not satisfy these monetary thresholds do not qualify as accredited investors.

 

Spouses

 

Sections (a), (b) and (c) above are designed to treat spouses as a single investing unit, so that either spouse qualifies as an accredited investor if the combined financial assets of both spouses exceed $1,000,000, the combined net income of both spouses exceeds $300,000, or the combined net assets of both spouses exceed $5,000,000. Section (d) above does not treat spouses as a single investing unit.

 

If the combined net income of both spouses does not exceed $300,000, but the net income of one of the spouses exceeds $200,000, only the spouse whose net income exceeds $200,000 qualifies as an accredited investor.

Financial Assets and Related Liabilities

 

For the purposes of Sections (a) and (d) above, “ financial assets ” means: (1) cash, (2) securities, or (3) a contract of insurance, a deposit or an evidence of a deposit that is not a security for the purposes of securities legislation. These financial assets are generally liquid or relatively easy to liquidate. The value of a subscriber’s personal residence is not included in a calculation of financial assets.

 

The calculation of financial assets must exclude “ related liabilities ”, meaning: (1) liabilities incurred or assumed for the purpose of financing the acquisition or ownership of financial assets, or (2) liabilities that are secured by financial assets.

 

As a general matter, it should not be difficult to determine whether financial assets are beneficially owned by an individual, an individual’s spouse, or both, in any particular instance. However, in the case where financial assets are held in a trust or in another type of investment vehicle for the benefit of an individual, there may be questions as to whether the individual beneficially owns the financial assets. The following factors are indicative of beneficial ownership of financial assets:

 

physical or constructive possession of evidence of ownership of the financial asset;

 

entitlement to receipt of any income generated by the financial asset;

 

risk of loss of the value of the financial asset; and

 

the ability to dispose of the financial asset or otherwise deal with it as the individual sees fit.

 

For example, securities held in a self-directed RRSP for the sole benefit of an individual are beneficially owned by that individual.

 

In general, financial assets in a spousal RRSP can be included for the purposes of the $1,000,000 financial asset test in Section (a) above because Section (a) takes into account financial assets owned beneficially by a spouse. However, financial assets in a spousal RRSP cannot be included for purposes of the $5,000,000 financial asset test in Section (d) above.

 

Financial assets held in a group RRSP under which the individual does not have the ability to acquire the financial assets and deal with them directly do not meet the beneficial ownership requirements in either Sections (a) or (d) above.

 

Net Assets

 

For the purposes of Section (c) above, “ net assets ” means all of a subscriber’s total assets minus all of the subscriber’s total liabilities. Accordingly, for the purposes of the net asset test, the calculation of total assets includes the value of a subscriber’s personal residence, and the calculation of total liabilities includes the amount of any liability (such as a mortgage) in respect of the subscriber’s personal residence.

 

To calculate a subscriber’s net assets under the net asset test, subtract the subscriber’s total liabilities from the subscriber’s total assets. The value attributed to assets should reasonably reflect their estimated fair value. Income tax is considered a liability if the obligation to pay it is outstanding at the time of the distribution of the security to the subscriber by the Issuer.

 

Guidance On Accredited Investor Exemptions for Corporations, Trusts and Other Entities

 

Accredited investors that are corporations, trusts or other entities include:

 

(a)           a corporation, trust or other entity, other than an investment fund, that has net assets (please see the guidance below regarding calculating net assets) of at least $5,000,000 as shown on its most recently prepared financial statements in accordance with applicable generally accepted accounting principles and that has not been created or used solely to purchase or hold securities as an accredited investor;

 

 
- 25 -

 

  (b)        a corporation, trust or other entity in respect of which all of the owners of interests, direct, indirect or beneficial, except the voting securities required by law to be owned by directors, are persons that are accredited investors; and
     
  (c)         a trust established by an accredited investor for the benefit of the accredited investor’s family members of which a majority of the trustees are accredited investors and all of the beneficiaries are the accredited investor’s spouse, a former spouse of the accredited investor or a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, child or grandchild of that accredited investor, of that accredited investor’s spouse or of that accredited investor’s former spouse.

 

Net Assets

 

For the purposes of Section (a) above, “ net assets ” means all of the subscriber’s total assets minus all of the subscriber’s total liabilities. The minimum net asset threshold of $5,000,000 specified in Section (a) above must be shown on the entity’s most recently prepared financial statements. The financial statements must be prepared in accordance with applicable generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Guidance on Close Personal Friend and Close Business Associate Determination

 

A “ close personal friend ” of a director, executive officer, founder or control person of an issuer is an individual who knows the director, executive officer, founder or control person well enough and has known them for a sufficient period of time to be in a position to assess their capabilities and trustworthiness and to obtain information from them with respect to the investment.

 

The following factors are relevant to this determination:

 

  (a) the length of time the individual has known the director, executive officer, founder or control person,
     
  (b) the nature of the relationship between the individual and the director, executive officer, founder or control person including such matters as the frequency of contacts between them and the level of trust and reliance in the other circumstances, and
     
  (c) the number of “close personal friends” of the director, executive officer, founder or control person to whom securities have been distributed in reliance on the private issuer exemption or the family, friends and business associates exemption.

 

An individual is not a close personal friend solely because the individual is:

 

  (a) a relative,
     
  (b) a member of the same club, organization, association or religious group,
     
  (c) a co-worker, colleague or associate at the same workplace,
     
  (d) a client, customer, former client or former customer,
     
  (e) a mere acquaintance, or
     
  (f) connected through some form of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

 

The relationship between the individual and the director, executive officer, founder or control person must be direct. For example, the exemption is not available to a close personal friend of a close personal friend of a director of the issuer. Further, a relationship that is primarily founded on participation in an internet forum is not considered to be that of a close personal friend.

 

 
- 26 -

 

A “ close business associate ” is an individual who has had sufficient prior business dealings with a director, executive officer, founder or control person of the issuer to be in a position to assess their capabilities and trustworthiness and to obtain information from them with respect to the investment.

 

The following factors are relevant to this determination:

 

  (a) the length of time the individual has known the director, executive officer, founder or control person,
     
  (b) the nature of any specific business relationships between the individual and the director, executive officer, founder or control person, including, for each relationship, when it began, the frequency of contact between them and when it terminated if it is not ongoing, and the level of trust and reliance in the other circumstances,
     
  (c) the nature and number of any business dealings between the individual and the director, executive officer, founder or control person, the length of the period during which they occurred, and the nature and date of the most recent business dealing, and
     
  (d) the number of “close business associates” of the director, executive officer, founder or control person to whom securities have been distributed in reliance on the private issuer exemption or the family, friends and business associates exemption.

 

An individual is not a close business associate solely because the individual is:

 

  (a) a member of the same club, organization, association or religious group,
     
  (b) a co-worker, colleague or associate at the same workplace,
     
  (c) a client, customer, former client or former customer,
     
  (d) a mere acquaintance, or
     
  (e) connected through some form of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

 

The relationship between the individual and the director, executive officer, founder or control person must be direct. For example, the exemptions are not available for a close business associate of a close business associate of a director of the issuer. Further, a relationship that is primarily founded on participation in an internet forum is not considered to be that of a close business associate.
