    Legal information for the investor

    Risks

    Investing in projects published on the Flobers website, platform, and its IP domains may involve certain risks, such as the risk of total or partial loss of invested capital, not obtaining the expected financial returns, or lack of liquidity of investments. Therefore, we strongly advise investors to invest amounts they are prepared to lose and diversify their investments to minimize and mitigate potential risks.

    The main risks associated with this type of investments include, but are not limited to:

    1. Risk of total or partial loss of invested capital. Investments made via the Flobers platform are not guaranteed, so there is a risk of losing all or part of the invested capital.
    2. Risk of not obtaining the expected financial returns. The profitability and value of the investment will depend on the success of the project chosen for investment. Therefore, if the project’s objectives are not met, the investor may not receive the expected returns, and in certain negative scenarios, they could even lose all or part of the invested money.
    3. Investments made through the platform are not guaranteed. Flobers nor the Project developers guarantee the recovery of the investment or a minimum return. There is also no guaranteed deposit scheme to guarantee the recovery of the investment or the minimum return.
    4. Potential lack of investment liquidity due to restrictions on the free transferability inherent in the legal framework of limited liability companies. There is a risk that there may be a lack of liquidity in connection with an equity investment. In this context, the restrictions inherent in the free transferability of shares that are inherent in the legal regime of the limited liability companies that issued them should be taken into account, as well as the restrictions established in the invested company’s bylaws or any shareholder agreements.
    5. Risk of dilution of the participation in the Project Company. Investments made through Flobers may be subject to future dilution. Dilution occurs when a company issues more shares pursuant to a capital increase. Dilution affects all existing partners who do not acquire any of the new shares. As a result, the partners’ participation is reduced.
    6. Risk of not receiving dividends. Capital gains will be distributed among investors as partners, using the method that maximizes their investment return. The projects published on Flobers may be focused on short- or long-term investments. Therefore, in some cases, dividends will not be received, but capital gains will be received upon liquidation of the limited liability company, without any guaranteed return.
    7. Risk of not being able to influence the management of the company. Investors cannot influence the management of the companies financed through the crowdfunding platform.

    Investing in renewable energy projects advertised on the Platform may involve certain risks, such as the risk of total or partial loss of invested capital, not obtaining the expected financial returns or lack of liquidity. Therefore, we advise investors only to invest amounts that they are prepared to lose and advise them to diversify their investments to minimize and mitigate the potential risks. In the case of a developer’s inability to repay the funds received, Flobers Crowdfunding Spain P.F.P, S.L. will not refund the investors’ investment made in photovoltaic energy.

    Nevertheless, before referring to the CNMV Claims Service, a complaint or file must be lodged with Flobers. However, if you disagree with the response received, or if a month has passed without a response, there is a Complaints Service of the National Securities Market Commission (attached to the Investors Department of the CNMV), where you can refer a complaint through the following means:

    Electronic submission of your complaint.
    Form directed to the Complaints Service of the CNMV: Edison, 4, 28006 Madrid – Passeig de Gràcia, 19, 08007 Barcelona.
    Likewise, you have an investor helpline: 900 535 015.
    The CNMV examines the admissibility of the complaint and communicates its admission or request for correction of those issues that are necessary for its admission.

    Once admitted, the complaint is transferred to the relevant institution (in this case, Flobers), so that it can make its allegations within twenty-one natural days. Flobers must send these allegations to the claimant so that they can comment on them, also within a twenty-one natural day period.

    The maximum period for resolving complaints is ninety natural days. If this is not possible, this circumstance must be reported, and the causes that have prevented compliance with the required deadline it must be included in the final report.

    The final report shall contain clear, precise, and motivated conclusions on the conduct followed by the institution in the case raised. This report:

    • Is only informative and non-binding for the parties. However, Flobers must inform the supervisor of the actions taken in connection with the complaints resolved with a favorable report for the claimant.
    • Does not have the consideration of an appealable administrative act, so it cannot be the subject of an appeal before administrative or judicial bodies.
    • Does not include economic assessments of the possible damages and losses suffered by users of financial services, as only the courts of justice can recognize this type of requests.

    During the processing, interested parties may withdraw their complaint, which would lead to the termination of the procedure for the claimant. They can also reach a settlement with the institution and put an end to the proceedings.
