ARCG Nevada Regional Center
ARCG Nevada 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 Nevada Regional Center (formerly Geothermal Regional Center) was designated as a Regional Center by USCIS in September 2011. With wide open spaces and ample resources in solar, wind and geothermal, Nevada is a natural region for development of important renewable and sustainable energy resources. In fact, Nevada is the leader in U.S. solar and geothermal energy production and the home to a large percent of the nation’s geothermal energy companies.
Nevada is also aggressively diversifying its economy away from its predominant tourism, gaming, real estate and retail industries to new industries such as aerospace & defense, agriculture, information technology, and manufacturing. ARCG Nevada Regional Center provides investors the possibility to invest in these growing industries as well as Nevada’s established renewable energy industry.
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.
