Since November 2016, readers of Gecko Research were given the opportunity to participate in several Canadian financings:
1) IPO – Emblem Corp (EMC.V) @ $1.15 incl 1/2 wt @ $1.75 (closed)
EMC reached a 52wk high of $4.60 which would constitute a 300% gain. And that’s not giving any consideration to the value of the half warrant that was included.
2) Seed – The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD-private) @ $0.50 (closed)
TGOD closed its next round of financing at $1.15 so early participants are already enjoying a 130% gain.
3) Pre-IPO – The Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD-private) @ $1.15 incl full wt @ $2.15 (closed)
The interest has been among the greatest for any Canadian marijuana pre-IPO financing. We will leave it at that. After this round, TGOD will be our largest holding in our portfolio.
4) Zinc One Resources (Z.V) @ $0.60 incl 1/2 wt @ $0.90 (closed)
Zinc One has acquired the Bongará Mine, a world-class oxide zinc project in mining friendly Peru. With this PP closed, Zinc One has 11-12 Mcad in the bank, well financed for aggressively moving the mine into feasibility and later back into production.
5) Sonoro Energy (SNV.V) @ 3c incl 1/2 wt @ 5c (closed)
Sonoro is about to drill its first target in Indonesia with results expected by the end of August. Warrants are already “in the money” and as SNV is trading around 9c, GIG participants are enjoying a 200% profit already.
GIG – Gecko Investor Group
The Gecko Investor Group (GIG) is a closed group of paying subscribers that will from time to time get access to private placements (PP’s) in Canadian junior companies, just like the ones mentioned above.
We have been investing our own money this way for several years and we have found it to have helped us enormously in our personal wealth creation.
With our growing network of contacts, don’t be surprised if we bring forward placements outside of the Gecko Portfolio as well.
How Do I Join?
First of all, you need to be a subscriber to our free newsletter which is easy to sign up for.
To activate your GIG membership, simply send us an email with your contact information to gig (at) geckoresearch.com. We will then send you a few documents to sign, scan and return to us.
What Does It Cost?
After you have provided us with the documentation we need, we will send you an invoice of C$2,500 for a 1-year membership (Paypal/Visa/Eurocard/Amex accepted). Corporate rate is C$5,000.
If you participated in any of the PP’s mentioned above, you would have very likely covered the cost of the fee many times over.
How Many PP’s Per Year Will I Get Offered?
There are no guarantees, it could be none (not very likely) and it could be several. We set the bar pretty high when it comes to where we investment our own money and we intend to be picky. You can rest assure that we are very likely to be invested with our own money alongside yours.
You can only invest in these placements as an accredited investor.
I Don’t Have A Canadian Trading Account
If our members don’t have a Canadian broker account, we can steer you in the right direction. Great part is, you don’t even have to make the trip to Canada to open one!
Limited Number Of GIG Members – First Come, First Serve
We feel it’s important for GIG not to get too big as this will not be beneficial for the group. If GIG is too small then GIG would not be very appealing to the companies (not happening as critical mass is already met). If GIG gets too big, members would likely risk being cut back and not receiving their full allocation.
So, we will open up for new memberships in GIG during periods as we go along. If we don’t accept new members to join, it’s for the existing members’ benefit and you will be put on a waiting list.
Gecko Investor Group – Current Status
GIG is currently closed and is not accepting new members at this time. Send us an email and we will be happy to put you on the waiting list.
