AxiaFunder backs shareholder dispute case

AxiaFunder is raising funding to support an unfair prejudice petition claim against a majority shareholder in relation to a high-value housebuilding company.

Citing clear evidence of unlawfully withholding dividends from minority shareholders, lack of adequate transparency, and clear evidence of unlawfully diverting company assets, counsel estimates that the claim has a 65-70% probability of winning at trial (if not settled pre-trial).

AxiaFunder is seeking £190,000 to fund the case through mediation and claim preparation. Further capital will be required to fund the case to trial if no settlement is reached before issuing the claim.

With 50%+ of the solicitor’s fees contingent on the case resolving positively and ATE insurance in place, AxiaFunder is estimating a 3.2x Multiple on Capital for investors if the case resolves favourably at 30 months.

AxiaFunder notes that investing in the offers available on its platform puts investors’ capital at risk and returns are not guaranteed.  It urges individuals to read the full risk warning on before deciding to invest.

AxiaFunder to switch to a ‘tax efficient’ partnership model

AxiaFunder, the UK-based crowdfunding litigation funder, is set to switch to a ‘tax efficient’ partnership model. The platform, which has been operating with an equity model of offering shares to investors in a company set up for cases, will switch to a limited partnership model in a few weeks. Founder and chief executive Cormac Leech said the partnership structure is more tax efficient, as the limited partnership company does not pay tax but rather passes all the earnings on to the investors who pay the tax.
