When you invest in music offerings through Republic, you are typically buying the music rights through special membership units of an LLC that owns the rights to a song, album or equivalent. The membership interest may be represented by a non-fungible token (an NFT) which is a representation of that ownership and the vehicle in which returns are distributed.
Investors earn returns when the musical asset associated with their investment generates revenues to the issuer LLC. The more a song is played, streamed and licensed, the more royalties are generated and the more assets are distributable to investors.
Once the song is released and starts generating revenue, the returns will first flow to the music distribution service provider. Then returns are distributed to the rights holders (investors) in their respective percentages. The exact amount of royalties and funds that an investor gets paid varies by each investment and amount invested. Most returns will be paid out quarterly to a digital wallet.
In order to invest on Republic, you must verify your identity. Identity verification is a standard practice as part of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) requirements. AML and KYC refer to due diligence activities that regulated financial institutions like Republic must perform for compliance purposes and fraud checks. Republic uses third party service providers to validate your identity and confirm you are not prevented from investing due to federal prohibitions.
You can also verify your identity here. You will be asked to provide personal identification information which may include your social security number (SSN) and a valid photo I.D. Some investors may be required to provide a passport.
Securities offerings facilitated by Republic and its affiliates through its various platforms, including any music or entertainment related investing verticals are in no way sponsored, administered or associated with UMG Recordings, Inc. or Republic Records.
*"S-NFT” or “Security-Non-Fungible Token” is a new term, developed by Republic to describe a non-fungible digital asset offered and sold as a “security”, as defined by the Securities Act of 1933 and the Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Securities Acts”). Blockchain technology is a rapidly expanding and changing area that is effected by the Securities Acts as well as state, federal and international law. Republic intends for offerings of S-NFTs to be conducted pursuant to exemptions from registration under the Securities Acts as facilitated by members of the Republic ecosystem. S-NFTs are a work in progress and therefore Republic and each Issuer of S-NFTs reserve the right to re-characterize the digital asset. Please review the terms, conditions and offering disclosures regarding an offering of S-NFTs for a full description of their characteristics, including but not Iimited to economic rights, fungibility, purchase and trading restrictions and the underlying technology of each S-NFT offered. Investments in private securities are inherently risky, illiquid and subject to a total loss of capital.
With regard to communications by an issuer to gauge interest in a potential securities offering pursuant to the Regulation CF exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including opportunities to “reserve” securities as indications of interest in the potential offering, please note that pursuant to Regulation Crowdfunding Rule 206 (i) that no money or other consideration is being solicited thereby, and if sent in response, will not be accepted, (ii) no offer to buy the securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received until the offering statement is filed and only through a registered intermediary’s platform, (iii) any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of its acceptance is given after the Form C is filed, and (iv) an indication of interest is non-binding and involves no obligation or commitment of any kind. Crowdfunding securities investments are inherently risky and illiquid and may result in a total loss.
