Hey All! I wanted to talk about my newest project. Feel free to ask any questions.
Mainstreet Investment LP (“The Fund”), is a Cayman Islands limited partnership established for the purpose of issuing one of the first digital token security in the world that is backed by real assets and provides real investment returns to holders. The fund will invest private equity funds for the purchase of US-based middle market operating companies, fund-of-funds, real estate, and blockchain technology.
Tonight, there will be a live AMA with Coinfund.io: https://twitter.com/coinfund_io/status/809986165319180290 (http://slack.coinfund.io )
The ITO will be run by an exchange that will also list the token, that will be announced soon.

We want to modernize private equity and provide investors with the opportunity to reap the returns of strong operating businesses in the US they currently don’t have access to, amid low-yielding bonds, high risk equity picks, and profit-erasing fees of mutual funds. Furthermore, through securing an excellent portfolio of assets we will focus on developing powerful synergies with our blockchain and bitcoin opportunities to create even greater value and returns to our investors and the respective industries we’re involved in.
The fund will be issuing tokens, MITs (Mainstreet Investment Tokens), in order to raise capital and to represent equity ownership and distribution rights for the assets within the portfolio. They will be distributed and tracked through the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) using two smart contracts. The first contract to create and launch the token, the second for locating the current holder and sending of quarterly distributions.

The Fund’s initial token offering, or “ITO”, of the Fund’s MIT will be capped at $25,000,000, plus an amount equal to 10% thereof as a holdback for future investment opportunities in the portfolio, for a total offering amount of $27,500,000. The ITO will extend for 60 days. Eligibility to invest in the Fund and acquire MIT is open globally; however, no residents of the United States or European Union may participate. The $27,500,000 goal of the ITO raise is based on the Intellisys acquisition pipeline, which includes a number of assets currently in different stages of analysis and negotiations. At the ITO’s termination, Intellisys will burn any MIT that have not been purchased (e.g., send the un-sold MIT to a public but un-spendable address.

The Investors, as MIT holders, are entitled to receive the first distributions from each class of Fund investments. The Fund Agreement provides that the Investors are given preferred treatment for a 10% annual cash-on-cash return (the “Preferred Return”). Next, Intellisys is entitled to a catch-up on that Preferred Return equal to 10% of the amount distributed to the Investors. All additional amounts are split 30% to the Investors and 70% to Intellisys (the “Carried Interest”).
Acquisition targets for the Fund will be purchased using a leveraged buyout structure. This structure helps to achieve better returns and also shifts a majority of the risk on to Intellisys, the general partner. Funds raised through the ITO, will be used to purchase a portion of the target asset, but the majority will be financed through outside debt secured personally by Jason Granger.
For example, Portfolio Asset #1’s total purchase price might be $5mm. Investors will put up $1mm (20% of the purchase price), and Intellisys secures the debt $4mm (80%). With this structure token holders are effectively gaining an additional 10% interest (or a 50% increase from original investment value) as they own 30% of the asset but will have invested 20% ($1mm of the $5mm needed). Further, If Portfolio Asset #1 were sold for $5mm after a few years of operations and debt service payments, the investment would be worth a minimum of $1.5mm. The incentive for Intellisys is to provide operational excellence and grow the value of the company to earn profits for itself.
Intellisys will, in conjunction with its Board of Advisors, approve annual operating budgets for each asset held in the Fund, which will outline annual financial goals, including projected income and expenses, debt obligations, capital expenditures and estimated investor returns. Available cash will be distributed on a quarterly basis after payment of all expenses (i.e., capital expenditures, debt obligations) and setting aside reasonable reserves.
As the Fund’s general partner, Intellisys is responsible for all Fund decisions, including relating to the Fund’s portfolio holdings and working with the Board of Advisors to ensure that decisions work for the good of the Investors. From a nancial perspective, an Investor might look at the structure detailed above and think, “If the a portfolio company performs exceptionally well, the general partner stands to make a lot more money in this transaction than investors.”
However, considering that the general partner does all of the heavy lifting in a deal, while Investors are paid a Preferred Return, it is logical for the general partner to expect to earn a greater share of profits. Investors rely on the general partner to do the following, among other things:
- Source and identify portfolio companies
- Underwrite and discover hidden value
- Pursue, negotiate and win deals
- Develop company business plans
- Negotiate purchase and sale agreements
- Conduct thorough due diligence
- Secure financing
- Provide personal debt guarantees
- Close deals
- Manage assets
- Perform and manage capital expenditure projects
- Execute asset business plans
