EB-5 INVESTMENT SUMMARY
5 Stars Global has created a secure path for EB-5 investors to receive their initial investment back within 5-7 years.
The office project will be fully leased, and therefore achieve most of its full value, just as the project is completed.
Investors will receive 115% of their capital investment back through a combination of:
- Net operating income:
Investors will earn at least 70% of the net income distributed to the EB-5 Limited Partnership until they have received their capital investment back along with a 15% return.
- Sale / refinance:
The General Partner will seek to sell or refinance the office project 5-7 years from the time of initial investment. Sale/ refinance proceeds (after debt repayment and expenses) will be prioritized to flow to EB-5 investors until they have received their capital investment back, along with a 15% return.
The key to success for EB-5 projects is to deliver jobs that secure green cards for investors. The Pearl Office project will deliver 1044 new jobs to the Portland area. This represents 104 JOBS PER INVESTOR – significantly more than the 10 jobs per investor required by the USCIS. The job estimates were established by ECO Northwest, a widely respected economics firm who have worked with 5 Stars Europe on their previously approved projects.
