ARCG California Regional Center
ARCG California Regional Center uses its specialized knowledge to bridge the gap between project developers seeking capital and the increasingly rigorous demands of EB-5 investors.
ARCG California Regional Center was designated as a Regional Center by USCIS in May 2014. ARCG California Regional Center will present opportunities to invest in the pressing need for infrastructure investment in California, particularly in the alternative energy industry. According to the California Infrastructure Report Card of 2012, California’s infrastructure “needs an additional annual investment of $65 billion.” The report also stated that “Robust statewide infrastructure means a healthier economy, improved job base, and higher quality of life for residents.”
ARCG management begins its project selection process by getting to know the company’s management and assessing its ability to execute the proposed project. Following the initial assessment of management’s capabilities, fundamental company documents are reviewed. These documents include key supply and sales contracts, project engineering and permitting documents, and financial statements. This review is particularly focused on potential liabilities, such as pending environmental or regulatory issues, liens on the company’s assets, outstanding litigation against the firm, and potential weaknesses in the project plan. The processevaluates the key risks to the company and the investment.
These risks include: execution risk, technical risk, financial risk, and commercial risk; which must be addressed to protect potential EB-5 investors. ARCG may also seek the help of outside experts to review technical aspects of the project. These experts can include: engineers to review project design and construction plans; permitting consultants to verify all local, state and federal permitting regulations have been addressed, specialized industry consultants who can best assist the market feasibility of the project and our immigration consultants and economists to determine if the project will comply with the EB5 program requirements in terms of job creation.
ARCG and its financial partners perform an exhaustive due diligence process on all projects to determine compliance with current legislation.
