Obtaining capital financing for businesses and commercial real estate properties via the registration-exempt Rule 506(c) securities offering process provides the opportunity for all companies to access the capital markets, not just companies undertaking IPOs. Having said, the recent SEC rule change makes registration-exempt Rule 506(c) securities offerings far less attractive than those that can be done under Regulation A. The new rules effectively allow the business to undertake what amounts to a public offering at a fraction of the potential cost in terms of time and money.
The United States Securities & Exchange Commission (“SEC”) made the final rule change to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended) effective back in September 2013. This change was done relatively quietly but has created a potential tsunami in the capital markets and business financing industry. The rule change allows all businesses to now raise unlimited amounts of capital and do so using broad advertising (called a “general solicitation”) that had been previously prohibited for 80 years. To make the change even sweeter, businesses using this avenue are not required to have a broker-dealer of record, the valuation fairness opinion, nor are they required to undertake the extraordinarily expensive SEC IPO registration and reporting processes.
The process involves accepting certain risks to be sure. Rule 506(c) offerings take advantage of the potential benefits of Large Number Theory to drive potential investors to the opportunity using broadcast advertising. The advertising costs and all of the attending due diligence costs that go into preparing the offering are paid in advance and recaptured at closing if the offering is successful (just like IPOs). The costs are not insignificant, but on average, the expectation is for the costs of this type of offering to be significantly less than those attending an IPO.
INVIZEN offers the only end-to-end solution specifically-designed to help end loan and investment losses in CRE securities private placement offerings by addressing the totality of the underwriting and due diligence issues in a real-time, proactive environment that only gets started with pre-closing due diligence.
The INVIZEN program is designed to help prevent the key risks from becoming future asset impairment problems while also proactively managing and/or deterring investment fraud, management performance and foreclosure default event exposure.
INVIZEN was purposely built to provide underwriting and due diligence reviews with one singular goal in mind: preventing future loss on capital investment made today.
To understand the INVIZEN value proposition is to understand the basic processes that attend the underwriting goal of using independent information to determine the value of an income-producing business asset. INVIZEN automates these processes so the cost of underwriting drops dramatically and the speed of processing increases dramatically as well.
The underwriting happens in real-time and that means we can give CRE NNN property investors the luxury of future investment performance assurance by re-underwriting the transaction each and every month of the investment holding period to give you up to 24 months of advance notice of changes in the market, the asset or operations that may have an impact on the future income-generating capacity of the market, property and site.
These notices can be both good and bad. INVIZEN has artificial intelligence at its core and computers don’t care if you have trash, it will still be another man’s treasure.

The INVIZEN Platform Concept
Rainmaker Analytics operates the INVIZEN Platform. The INVIZEN Platform is a collection of unique intellectual property programs that interact in a proprietary manner to create a systemic solution to investment risk.
The issue is confidence; confidence that the decision to deploy capital is going to be made in light of the knowledge that risks that were heretofore thought to be “baked into the deal” (i.e.: unavoidable risks that are a condition predicate to investing) are now manageable for the benefit of all of the financial stakeholders in the transaction. To accomplish this outcome, the INVIZEN Platform was developed over the past 14 years to provide the only true end-to-end solution that includes a seamless services program that provides both pre-funding due diligence services as well as post-funding monitoring programs and systems that are designed to prevent investment risks that conventional wisdom suggests cannot be avoided, therefore; any given investment is extremely risky and requires a higher risk premium be paid at the expense of all parties.
The resulting platform provides near real-time services and reporting that previously required 6 to 9 weeks to undertake and in form and depth that conventional systems cannot hope to offer. The end-result of the deployment of the INVIZEN Platform created the benefits of best-in-class content, best-in-class pricing and best-in-class delivery that make INVIZEN the stand-out in the financial services and commercial real estate industries. These benefits directly reduce the costs of obtaining capital by developers, promoters, and sponsors, while also providing proactive risk controls and risk elimination opportunities for commercial lenders, registered investment advisors, securities broker-dealers, institutional investment entities and regulators, alike. Rainmaker Analytics is listed in the FINRA Compliance Vendor Directory.
The INVIZEN Platform of Services
The INVIZEN Platform of services is designed to make the processes of accessing capital investment and deployment capital investment more efficient. Decisions can be made with confidence and in a much timelier manner.
The issues of not being able to make an investment decisions due to a lack of independently supported due diligence documentation or future execution risk controls are taken off of the table.
INVIZEN reduces the decision to the simple issue of the risk premium and eliminating the greed reflex in the process because every transaction is assessed against the totality of risk issues it demonstrates and provides a direct comparison of the transaction’s value to the investors being solicited for capital to the value the capital markets as a whole would place on that exact transaction in the public markets. This is possible because the INVIZEN Platform provides an integrated transaction opportunity valuation in advance of underwriting, together with the component feasibility studies, underwriting reports, business due diligence documentation and securities offering documentation to provide all of the necessary elements to allow for expeditious investment decisions to deploy capital.
Once capital is deployed, the process continues with a completely new underwriting review every month of the asset holding period together with the world’s only fraud and embezzlement elimination system that comes at a net zero cost to the user. These services make the value proposition of INVIZEN as unique as each client transaction.
