KEY FINANCIAL INFORMATION

fundraising graph
  • A top-up round coupled with the Future Fund, wherein the UK government matches private investment pound-for-pound
  • 2 six-figure grants from Malta Enterprise (ME) for operations costs in Malta, and collaboration with the University of Malta, subject to T&Cs
  • ME grants are non-refundable, non-taxable, and non-equity-dilutive
  • Only one share class with voting rights for investors, employees, and founders
  • Less than £100k in debt prior to the round. If this round's investment is converted, it will convert to the same share class as all other equity stakeholders

WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR INVESTMENT

Your investment will be part of a convertible loan note (CLN), which has the downside protection of debt and the upside benefit of equity. If the company enters a distress sale, debt holders are first in line for the proceeds, while if the company succeeds, investors can convert their debt into equity to reap much more reward through capital appreciation than loan interest.

The terms are as follows: 8% simple annual interest, 36 months maturity, 100% redemption if not converted, and a 20% discount to the valuation upon conversion, subject to the valuation cap.

Moreover, the UK Future Fund will match private investment pound-for-pound, so our runway is extended even further.

Convertible debt can be a little confusing, so see this Seedrs post on convertible debt for more details, including more information on the Future Fund.

OUR JOURNEY UNTIL NOW

Needing a solution for his lack of access to quality data and real-time content while investing, our founder built a basic version of our product from his bedroom in 2014. This need grew into a passion which blossomed into CityFALCON.

Originally we envisioned a simple, personalised financial news service. Since then, we’ve broadened our horizons by leveraging the latest technology to deliver relevant content in milliseconds, provide analytics-based insights, and offer an intuitive user experience. The Spotify concept best encapsulates our platform.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is signing up via the form above a commitment to invest?

No, it's not a commitment, it just helps us to understand the interest and plan our campaign.

Will I get more information about the company and the investment terms?

Yes, when the investment round is opened, we'll share more info with everyone.

What will the money raised be used for?

We'll use the money to continue building our scalable products, market our offerings, and sell to businesses. We want to break even and become self -sustainable as soon as possible.

How do you keep investors informed?

We send monthly emails regarding the latest developments in the company, a short-term outlook, and what to expect in the coming months.

Can I sell shares that I buy?

You will not receive shares in this round but convertible debt. You will not be able to trade the debt. If the debt is converted to equity, you are free to sell your shares. However, we may not be listed on any public exchanges, and you would have to sell your shares privately or through a semi-private exchange. Liquidity is low in such markets and you may find it difficult to sell shares until we are listed on an active public exchange.

From which countries can you accept investment?

You can be resident in any country and invest. However, all investment activity through our crowdfunding platform, Seedrs, takes place in the United Kingdom. It is up to the investor to ensure s/he is compliant with local regulations before investing via a UK entity.

Will I get any interest or dividend?

Because this round is through a convertible loan note (CLN), you will receive 8% simple (non-compounding) annual interest on your investment. If the debt converts, you are entitled to receive that 8% interest in the equity. If the debt is not converted, you are entitled to receive a 100% redemption premium at the end of the 36 months maturity period plus accumulated interest.

There is no dividend associated with this instrument, and even upon conversion, we do not expect dividends for equity in the medium term.

For how long will my money be locked?

The maturity of the debt is 36 months, at which point it will enter repayment if there is no conversion. However, it may be converted before then. If it is converted, then you will become an equity shareholder and are free to sell your shares whenever you wish. The market may be illiquid and it may be difficult to sell shares though.

Who will perform due diligence on the information you provide?

As a private company, we do not make our financial statements public. However, Seedrs will perform their own due diligence, as they do on other offerings on their platform, to ensure our company is not fraudulent and that we are not hiding any problems or issues from investors.

What is the minimum and maximum investment amount?

The minimum amount for this round is £50. There is no maximum amount.

How do I get access to more information about the company and team?

You can find more information through our Seedrs campaign. You may also contact our finance team with specific questions.
