Concerned about your investment in Tasty Brands LP?
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker dealers and financial advisors who may have unsuitably recommended Tasty Brands LP to investors.
Tasty Brands, LP is reportedly an affiliate of Los Angeles-based private equity firm Triton Pacific Capital Partners. According to its website, Tasty Brands is a “multi-brand restaurant franchisee within the quick service restaurant industry.” The company reportedly filed a form D to raise capital from investors in 2017 and again in 2020, according to filings with the SEC. The total offering amount was purportedly $100,000,000, with sales commissions and fees estimated at 6% of the total offering amount.
Private Placement investments such as this one, are generally speculative, high-risk investments and due to these risks are often unsuitable for most investors. Despite the risks of investing in alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation. In this particular offering the sales commissions and fees were estimated at 6% of the offering amount.
Since they are not traded on any exchange, private placement offerings are typically illiquid investments. There are often legal or contractual restrictions on your ability to transfer your holdings, and even if sale of your holdings is permitted there may be no buyers. You may need to hold these securities for an indefinite period of time.
Often companies that issue unlisted securities may provide little or no transparency into their ongoing operations and financial condition.
While some private placement investments may make periodic distributions, others may not make any. Brokerage firms have a responsibility to adequately disclose all risks before selling any investment and must consider suitability factors such as age, financial needs, and risk tolerance to name a few. Firms that do not perform adequate due diligences on an investment or demonstrate a breach of fiduciary duty can be held accountable for losses incurred through FINRA arbitration.
