The importance of an LLC Operating Agreement
If you are participating in a private investment via a Limited Liability Company (LLC), then an LLC Operating Agreement is like the rule book – it should tell you what you need to know about how the LLC is structured, managed, and operated. As an investor, it is important to understand the rules of the game to help protect yourself and reduce your risk.

Drag-along rights can give major shareholders the power to force the sale of all the shares in a company without the consent of minor shareholders. When forced to join in a sale, the minor shareholders are entitled to the same terms, conditions, and price as the major shareholders.

Private Placements are a high-risk investment. An investment in such offerings is speculative and an investor could experience an entire loss of principal. Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Private investments are highly illiquid and risky and are not suitable for all investors.
