Ernesto Preatoni launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Mamacrowd for financing Preatoni Nuda Proprietà Crowdfunding (PNPC), a leasehold investor (see here a previous post by BeBeez). PNPC raised 136k euros ahead of a target of 0.5 – 1 millions. Preatoni Nuda Proprietà (PNP), a company of Ernesto and Roberto Preatoni, launched PNPC with an investment of 15 millions in July 2019. PNPC will invest in acquiring leaseholds of real estate assets based in Italian big and mid-sized cities at discounted prices. If Preatoni Nuda Proprietà launched an ipo on Milan market, the crowdfunding investors in PNPC will benefit of a share swap ratio and therefore of the listing. A further way out will be available only to those investors that will agree to place their shares on the Euro Daxx (European Digital Assets Exchange) digital assets market, a Swiss platform, incorporated in Zug in the Crypto Valley under the control of FINMA, the Swiss stock market authority. In this case, investors may immediately get cash out of the sale of their investments or receive a security digital token.
