Learn how Golden Gate Global’s EB-5 program development process works.
1. Obtain Project Information
In order for us to begin structuring an EB-5 loan program, it is necessary for us to build an in-depth understanding of the Pproject, its development timeline and its funding needs and timing. To undertake this program development process, we typically need to review the following materials:
- Pro forma cash flow model
- Proposed sources and uses of funds
- Development timeline
- EB-5 Business plan
- Market information
- Relevant risk factors to the project’s timing, funding, and feasibility
2. Term Sheet
Based on the documents in section 1) and additional follow-up with the Project team, we will then enter into negotiations to draft and execute a term sheet.
3. EB-5 Program Design
We work with the Project team to determine the timing, sizing, and marketability of an EB-5 loan. This involves the engagement and management of the required EB-5 professionals including an EB-5 economist, immigration attorney, securities attorney, EB-5 business plan writer, etc.
4. Launch of EB-5 Promotion
We will work with our foreign investor distribution channels to market the Project’s investment opportunity.
5. Fund Administration and Reporting
We will manage all fund administration and reporting requirements to the EB-5 investors, USCIS, IRS, SEC and other government agencies. We will also assist you in developing a regular reporting system to fulfill all USCIS requirements for EB-5 job creation demonstration.
