Before investing in certificates of shares of greenSand, you must be adequately informed or have sufficient knowledge of all risks. An investment in Stock certificates is intended as a long-term investment. greenSand wants to work with you to create a movement to remove as much CO2 from the air as possible.

Risks of investments

The registered stock certificates' market value primarily depends on the market conditions and the (macro)economic developments that determine these market conditions. They may either improve or deteriorate. Also, the number of greenSand projects may decrease, or competition may increase. The availability of large-scale projects from the government and companies influences the market. If a decrease in the number of projects occurs here, the market risk increases. And vice versa, if the number of projects increases, the market risk decreases. 

There is a liquidity risk when particular investments are difficult to buy or sell. This liquidity risk can hinder the return on the invested stock shares because it prevents the company from executing favourable transactions. greenSand does not buy back-stock shares.

If greenSand goes bankrupt, the value of your registered stock certificates will drop to € 0. As a result, you will lose your investment, and the greenSand stock certificates will expire. In case of bankruptcy, the stock certificates will be paid last by selling the company's assets. Other company stakeholders are paid first if money is still available; this is divided equally among all certificate holders.

greenSand Stock N.V. is subject to (tax) laws and regulations. Local legislation regarding the environment, zoning plans, tax regulations, and financial (supervisory) rules and regulations affect greenSand Stock N.V. certificates' profitability. The risk consists of changes in legislation and regulations that adversely affect greenSand. The purpose of greenSand is to bind CO2 by spreading it over large areas of land and water changes in regulations regarding minerals and construction purposes can result in unforeseen risks.

greenSand has a policy for paying out dividends. At the time of issue, greenSand's ambition was set to pay out a 4% return. However, the dividend policy can be adjusted at any time and set lower or at zero / nil if the financial situation of greenSand requires.
