You should carefully consider the risks associated with this type of investment, security, and business before making any investment decision. In making an investment decision, Investors must rely on their own examination of the issuer and the terms of the offering, including the merits and risks involved. Please refer to Form C for additional risks and disclosures related to the offering.
