About the Company's Stockholders


As of September 13, 2021, there are more than 5,517 unique stockholders that have purchased our shares for an aggregate principal amount of approximately $87,800,000.





On August 12, 2021, our board of directors authorized, and we declared, a distribution to stockholders in the amount of $0.20 per share to be paid on December 15, 2021 to stockholders of record as of December 8, 2021, which we refer to as the “Record Date.” We may fund our cash distributions to stockholders from any sources of funds available to us, including offering proceeds, borrowings, net investment income from operations, capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets, non-capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets and expense reimbursements from our Adviser. For the avoidance of doubt, management fees and administrative expenses are paid by the Company and are not deducted from distributions.


Legal Proceedings

The first and second paragraphs of the section entitled “Legal Proceedings” in the Prospectus are amended and restated in their entirety with the following:





On September 9, 2020, four accredited investors filed a complaint against Yieldstreet Management LLC, the Company’s investment adviser, its parent, YieldStreet Inc., and certain of its affiliates, including YS Altnotes I LLC, YS Altnotes II LLC and Michael Weisz (collectively, “Yieldstreet”), alleging inadequate disclosure of the risks of a potential borrower default attendant to certain offerings undertaken by certain affiliates of Yieldstreet, and also seeking to represent a putative class of “all persons” who participated in such offerings since 2018, Michael Tecku, et al. v. Yieldstreet Inc., et al., No. 20-cv-07327 (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Tecku Matter”). The Company is not named as a defendant, nor is it otherwise a party to, the Tecku Matter. The complaint filed by plaintiffs in connection with the Tecku Matter is based in large part on a fraud undertaken by persons associated with certain marine borrowers (the “Lakhani Borrowers”) that Yieldstreet discovered and brought to the attention of the High Court of Justice of England and Wales (Queen’s Bench Division), which on April 2, 2020, granted a $76.7 million Worldwide Freezing Order and which, on October 5, 2020, entered a $85 million Final Judgment in favor of the SPVs managed by Yieldstreet Management, LLC. Yieldstreet is aware of several lenders who, taken together with Yieldstreet, loaned hundreds of millions of dollars to related borrowers under similar circumstances. The complaint in the Tecku Matter attributes key allegations to Four Wood Capital Advisors and Global Marine Transport Company (“Four Wood/GMTC”), the originator that introduced and vetted the Lakhani Borrowers, and then enabled and covered up the fraud. Yieldstreet terminated and sued Four Wood/GMTC in April 2020, YS GM Marfin II LLC, et al. v. Four Wood Capital Advisors, LLC, et al., 1:20-cv-03320- PGG (S.D.N.Y.) (the “Four Wood Matter”), which as amended asserts fraud and other claims against Four Wood/GMTC and its principals, Steven Baffico and Andrew Simmons, for, among other allegations, their deception of Yieldstreet, the manner with which they enabled the Lakhani Borrowers, and the misappropriation of more than $320,000. On April 26, 2021, the court dismissed all but one claim and dismissed all defendants except the Adviser. The court held that plaintiffs could potentially meet the Rule 12(6)(b) plausibility standard on the one remaining claim for breach of fiduciary duty claim but stated that it was “skeptical that [the Adviser] owed a fiduciary duty to Plaintiffs.” Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in May 2021, alleging common-law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligent misrepresentation claims and claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, related to marine offerings that are exposed to underlying defaults by the Lakhani Borrowers and also to a single oil and gas offering where the underlying borrower later filed for bankruptcy.  On July 1, 2021, pursuant to the Court’s procedures with regards to motions to dismiss, Yieldstreet requested that the Court dismiss the amended complaint, which request thereafter was letter briefed by the parties and fully submitted on September 3, 2021. Plaintiffs have amended the complaint, and Yieldstreet has noticed its intention to move to dismiss the complaint. Yieldstreet believes the lawsuit lacks merit and will continue to vigorously defend against it. 


On September 21, 2020, the Company, its investment adviser, the adviser’s parent and founders filed a Motion to Dismiss an individual complaint that was filed on September 2, 2020, by a putative member of the class in the Tecku Matter seeking rescission under the Securities Act of 1933 of a $200,000 investment in the Company, David Berten, as trustee for the David Powers Berten Trust v. YieldStreet Management, LLC, et al., Case. No. 654204/2020 (N.Y. Sup. Court) (the “Berten Matter”). The Motion sought dismissal of the Berten Matter on multiple grounds, including because the shares of the Company have appreciated in value during the course of the investment, which bars any claim under the Securities Act, and there was nothing misleading or otherwise actionable about the offering documents in any event. On January 29, 2021, the Court entered an order dismissing the complaint with prejudice. On March 5, 2021, the plaintiff filed a notice of appeal of the order granting the Motion to Dismiss. Yieldstreet believes the lawsuit lacks merit, that it was appropriately dismissed by the trial Court, and will continue to vigorously defend against it on appeal.
