Prospectus LLC is a global consultancy that specializes in preparing fully-compliant Private Placement Memorandums (PPM) and related investor offering documents.

Our team of investor documentation experts include finance industry veterans and securities law professionals who, throughout their careers have guided hundreds of public corporations and private enterprises throughout the world.
Because a Private Placement Memorandum is the most important investor offering document used to raise capital from high net worth (HNW) or Accredited Investors, it needs to conform to best practices and be properly written. Because private placements are “private”, offerings advanced under SEC Regulation D, Rule 504, Rule 505 and/or Rule 506 (and respective subsections), it is essential for Issuers to demonstrate full transparency to investors. A formal PPM document serves as a safety belt for Issuers. A formal PPM document serves as a safety belt for Issuers. Full disclosure, in writing, as to business opportunity, company information, risk factors and terms/conditions of the securities offered will mitigate the potential risk of a investor dispute. Typically, Issuers will raise capital by issuing debt (e.g. notes, bonds or convertible bonds), equity (common shares, preferred shares or warrants), or a combination thereof. We have prepared thousands of PPM offering memos in the various constructs and we are fluent in preparing bespoke offering documents based on the need of Issuers and Investors, alike.
Chicago PPM. Why Write a PPM??
Preparing a PPM, OM, confidential offering memorandum (COM) or confidential information memorandum (CIM) should not be viewed as an ‘option’ on the part of Issuers seeking to raise capital. The (3) most important reasons to do so are as follows:
- Using a PPM to solicit investment capital is often (not always) a legal / regulatory requirement.
- Having a formal PPM in place can help protect company founders from claims brought by disgruntled investors.
- Providing a PPM to investors demonstrates integrity and professionalism on the part of the Issuer.
The drafting of Private Placement Offering Memorandum (PPM) is often mandatory based on regulatory jurisdiction, investor profile and other factors. Equally important, the PPM is the primary document that fully outlines the investment opportunity.
