The Website contains general information regarding the Seed Advantage SEIS Fund 1 (the “Fund”).

The Information Memorandum is issued solely for the purpose of seeking subscriptions from prospective investors for investments in the Fund. Information on the Website and the Information Memorandum are confidential and must not be copied, reproduced or distributed in whole or in part to any other person at any time without the Manager’s prior written consent.
The tax treatment referred to in the Website and the Information Memorandum depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in future. In addition, the availability of any tax reliefs depends on the investee companies in which investments are made from time to time maintaining their qualifying status. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the full amount invested.
Investment in the Fund carries substantial risk. Any investment in the Fund should be regarded as being medium to long term in nature. There can be no assurance that the Fund’s investment objective will be met and results may vary substantially over time. Investors’ money subscribed to the Fund will be committed to investments which may be of a long term and illiquid nature. The companies in which the Fund invests will not be quoted on any regulated market and, accordingly, there will not be an established or ready market for any such shares. It may be difficult to obtain information regarding how much an investment is worth or how risky it is at any given time and the Manager may experience difficulty in realising the investments (for value or at all).
An investment in the Fund may only be made on the basis of the Information Memorandum and the Investment Management Agreement set out therein. Prospective investors should not regard the contents of the Website or the Information Memorandum as constituting a recommendation or advice relating to any legal, taxation, regulatory or investment matters and are advised to consult their own professional advisers before contemplating any investment.
