An investment in securities of Minsk Finance Investments funds is subject to significant risks that are described in more detail in the “Risk Factors” and “Conflicts of Interest” sections of the prospectus. Investments in Minsk Finance Investments funds are not suitable for all investors. Refer to the applicable prospectus, as amended, for a detailed discussion of risks and suitability standards for your state.

An investment in Minsk Finance Investments REIT I, Inc. (“MF REIT-I”) involves significant risks, including the following:

  • There is no public trading market for MF REIT-I shares, and the MF REIT-I cannot assure you that one will ever develop. Until the shares are publicly traded, you will have difficulty selling your shares, and even if you are able to sell your shares, you will likely have to sell them at a substantial discount.
  • This is a “blind pool” offering because the MF REIT-I, though it owns properties, it makes investments without shareholder consent. You will not have the opportunity to evaluate the MF REIT-I’s investments prior to its making them. You must rely totally upon the MF REIT-I’s advisor’s ability to select the MF REIT-I’s investments.
  • The number of properties that the MF REIT-I will acquire and the diversification of its investments will be reduced to the extent that it sells less than all of the shares it is currently offering. If the MF REIT-I does not sell substantially more than the minimum 250,000 shares, it may buy only one property and the value of your investment may fluctuate more widely with the performance of the specific investment. There is a greater risk that you will lose money in your investment if the MF REIT-I cannot diversify its portfolio of investments by geographic location and property type.
  • The MF REIT-I’s ability to achieve its investment objectives and to pay dividends depends on the performance of Minsk Finance Investments, the MF REIT-I’s advisor, for the day-to-day management of the MF REIT-I’s business and the selection of its real estate properties, mortgage loans and other investments.
  • The MF REIT-I’s advisor does not have any prior experience sponsoring a public real estate investment trust. Not all of its officers and directors, nor the officers and directors of its advisor, have extensive experience with mortgage financing.
  • The MF REIT-I will pay significant fees to Minsk Finance Investments and its affiliates, some of which are payable based upon factors other than the quality of services provided to the MF REIT-I.
  • The MF REIT-I’s advisor will face various conflicts of interest resulting from its activities with affiliated entities, such as conflicts related to allocating the purchase and leasing of properties between the MF REIT-I and other Minsk Finance Investments programs, conflicts related to any joint ventures between the MF REIT-I and any such other programs and conflicts arising from time demands placed on the MF REIT-I’s advisor in serving other Minsk Finance Investments programs.
  • The MF REIT-I may incur substantial debt. Loans obtained by the MF REIT-I will be secured by some of its properties, which will put those properties at risk of forfeiture if the MF REIT-I is unable to pay its debts and could hinder the MF REIT-I’s ability to pay dividends to its stockholders in the event income on such properties, or their value, falls.
  • To ensure that the MF REIT-I continues to qualify as a MF REIT-I for federal income tax purposes, its charter prohibits any stockholder from owning more than 9.8% of its outstanding common stock.
  • The MF REIT-I may not qualify or remain qualified as a MF REIT-I for federal income tax purposes, which would subject it to the payment of tax on its income at corporate rates and reduce the amount of funds available for payment of dividends to its stockholders.
  • Real estate investments are subject to general downturns in the industry as well as downturns in specific geographic areas. The MF REIT-I cannot predict what the occupancy level will be in a particular building or that any tenant or mortgage loan borrower will remain solvent. The MF REIT-I also cannot predict the future value of its properties. Accordingly, the MF REIT-I cannot guarantee that you will receive cash distributions or appreciation of your investment.
  • You will not have preemptive rights as a stockholder, so any shares issued by the MF REIT-I in the future may dilute your interest in the MF REIT-I.
  • The MF REIT-I may invest some or all of the offering proceeds to acquire vacant land on which a building will be constructed in the future. This type of investment involves risks relating to the builder’s ability to control construction costs, failure to perform, or failure to build in conformity with plan specifications and timetables. The MF REIT-I will be subject to potential cost overruns and time delays for properties under construction. Increased costs of newly constructed properties may reduce its returns to you, while construction delays may delay its ability to distribute cash to you.
  • The vote of stockholders owning at least a majority of the MF REIT-I’s shares will bind all of the stockholders as to certain matters such as the election of directors and an amendment of the MF REIT-I’s charter.
  • If the MF REIT-I does not obtain listing of the shares on a national exchange by the twelfth anniversary of the termination of its initial offering, (such date being on or about February 18, 2017). the MF REIT-I’s charter provides that it must begin to sell all of its properties and distribute the net proceeds to its stockholders.
  • Each of the MF REIT-I’s executive officers, including Mr. Fonteno, who also serves as the chairman of the MF REIT-I’s board of directors, also serve as officers of the MF REIT-I’s advisor, its property manager, its dealer manager and other affiliated entities, and as a result they will face conflicts of interest relating from their duties to these other entities.
