Opportunity allows installers, partners and consumers alike a chance to become part of the Secure Logiq success story.
London, 3rd November 2014: In what is a first for the security industry, Secure Logiq today announced the launch of an innovative crowdfunding initiative that gives installers, partners and consumers the opportunity to own a share of a business that is shaping up to be a huge success story.
The crowdfunding initiative, hosted on the popular ShareIn platform, seeks to raise £450,000 to allow Secure Logiq to ramp up production facilities and meet a number of potentially very large orders. The investment sought will also allow Secure Logiq to expand its existing UK based operations and boost sales and marketing activity.
Formed in 2011 by Executive Director, Hamish Johnson, and Chief Technology Officer, Aleksander Uzunov, Croydon based Secure Logiq is the world’s leading producer of ultra-high-performance HD surveillance servers and associated technology. Secure Logiq servers provide the fastest performance, the biggest storage, the most resilience and the best value in HD processing and storage technology. Before Secure Logiq, the only options available to installers and end users were traditional IT servers that simply did not offer the level of processing, storage and throughput required by ever more sophisticated surveillance systems.
“What we are doing with the crowdfunding initiative is unique”, said Robin Hughes, Sales Director. “Up until now crowdfunding has focused on raising enough money to get products designed or built for consumer audiences. We already have a market-leading product that is generating lots of business interest and, whilst other funding routes are open to us, we strongly believe that everyone should have the chance to share in our success. Equity crowdfunding therefore makes perfect sense.”
In the spirit of opening up the opportunity to all the minimum investment has been set low, at only £150, and investors from the industry are being actively encouraged to invest and so share in the great potential for the company’s long-term success.
Crowdfunding is a method of funding a project or organisation by pooling the money of individual investors. Many investments made to equity crowdfunding initiatives are covered by the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), which provides distinct benefits for investors. These include tax relief of 30% on investments up to £1,000,000. Conditions apply but in some cases this can mean investments are exempt from both Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax. The EIS scheme also helps investors mitigate some of their risk in the event that they must dispose of shares at a loss, by allowing them to offset the loss against income.
Those interested in investing should visit https://www.sharein.com to learn more; registering interest is a simple task and only takes five minutes. Investors can track the progress of the funding exercise at the same website.
Investing in early stage companies involves risks, including loss of capital, illiquidity, lack of dividends and dilution, and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. ShareIn is only for investors who understand these risks. You will only be able to invest in companies once you have met our conditions for becoming a registered member.
