Site Specific Investment (Special Purpose Vehicle)

What is a Special Purpose Vehicle? 

Key Takeaways

  • A special purpose vehicle (SPV) is a subsidiary legal entity created by a parent company to isolate the financial risk of certain assets, projects, or ventures.

  • SPV’s have their own assets, liabilities, and financial statements. The assets held within an SPV do not appear on the balance sheet of the parent company.

  • SPVs are easy to set up, help manage risk, and have very few regulation requirements.

Purpose
Purpose of Investment: Land and Infrastructure for the first Rainbird Village

Our goal is to create whole systems, resilient villages across rural America that include the infrastructure for Jobs, Housing, Education, Health & Wellness, Regenerative Agriculture, Clean Energy, Secure Telecom, Trade, Community Conviviality, and Personal Thrivability where people can enjoy life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness free from the conventional extractionist economic treadmill.

We need to begin somewhere. (This will be that place to go to see how it works.)

We have located an almost ideal place to build this first Village. We are happy to talk to you about the details of this real estate acquisition, but because of the sensitive nature of this deal, we will not reveal its location here. 

Our collaborators for this first Village are seasoned, "best of breed" companies and individuals who are eager to build the synergistic components of our whole-systems community.

This first ​demonstration site will be built by Rainbird Development Company’s project-specific Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), pre-sold to Rainbird Village Municipality, which will occupy the site and ramp up revenue generating operations concurrent with the development phases delineated below. Rainbird Village is incorporated as a municipal corporation under the Home-Rule provision of the Utah constitution and is tax exempt under IRC 170(c)1.  Rainbird Village, at the point of viability, will refinance the project and exit the investors.

The phasing of the project is for the convenience of investors and contributors. Time Frames are approximate and may overlap. We will be fundraising for all phases as soon as property acquisition is closed.

c. And. here we have "the Hunt Lodge." This property, which is adjacent to the other two properties, is valuable for a number of reasons.

2. Technology - Data Center Development 

We will be collecting copious amounts of data so as to learn faster about natural processes. We have learned that Nature is a wonderous tutor, but a terrible enemy. Rainbird also works toward more specific and integrated applications for operating and managing regenerative villages. We begin humbly and expand.

 

Data Center2_edited.jpg

3. The Regenerative Arts and Ecologies Institute (RAEI) - Architect and Build

The Institute is literally a university of regeneration. In this phase, Rainbird Village expands educational programs, business incubation, and additional Maker Spaces and Studios. RAEI is a Living Building Challenge initiative.

 

Why would we be building such an educational institution? Well, it's because of the times that we are in! Many institutions have lost the trust of the people. Many city people now want to live in the country, and have a more regenerative, or at least a less harmful life style. But, City folks don't know how to live in the country. Many don't have productivity skills. That is where we come in.

MARKET SIZE

Potential service convergence to the largest emerging markets in the world. 

  • Hospitality - Global Market is expected to hit $5.9 Trillion by 2022.  Travelers in Utah spent $10.06 Billion in 2019, even more in 2023. Utah is a great tourist destination and our programs and services are at the pinnacle of the health and wellness industries. We think that we check all of the boxes for value, variety of activities, and our focus on a regenerative future. We don't know of another place that brings together all of these desirable qualities better than we do.

Market size Hospitality_edited.jpg
Utah Tourism.jpg

The property spans about 5.5 miles East to West and the elevation goes from 5,700 feet to 9,000 feet. The terrain offers spectacular mountain and valley views and a multitude of activities for 4 season enjoyment. Because of our ecological emphasis, we will not over build or misuse the land, so it will continue to offer the very best of experience for our guests who want solitude, personalized service, and a one of a kind experience. The location is remote but convenient. It is only a little over an hour from the Salt Lake International Airport. The opulent mansion house and grounds offer uncommon luxury and comfort. Guests will feel like royalty. 

  • Health and Wellness - Global market was $4.2 Trillion in 2017 with $52.5 Billion being spent within the United States. 79% of employers are now offering wellness programs for their employees. Workplace disease management programs are losing popularity to wellness programs. Health and wellness industry  spending growth makes it a direct competitor to healthcare spending. Who wouldn't rather stay well than become ill? Since many of the most lethal diseases are lifestyle and nutrition related, it makes sense to place focus on health.

Market size Wellness_edited_edited.jpg
  • Ecological System Services - Definitely a growing sector of our economy and perhaps the most important, but the first two will carry us to profitability. By investing in us, you are also supporting our ecological mission to bring forth education and research in the areas of Agroforestry, Holistic Land Management, Agroecology and Permaculture. Likely revenues in this area: $6 to 10 Million/year. You are supporting regenerative villages of the future.

  • Products and Retail - Definitely the icing on the cake. A demonstration site for regenerative commerce and economics. Likely revenues of $16 to 20 Million per year or more.

TAM - SAM - SOM

Rainbird Village is in the forefront of emerging markets in hospitality, health and wellness and ecological services. We are somewhat unique in that we are bringing together the elements that will bring success to rural development of the future. Without better examples to follow, the future could be quite bleak. The usual scenario for the future projections is one of austerity and belt-tightening, and it is our desire to demonstrate the abundance of working in whole systems design and implementation. Our system solves so many of our current modern problems.

Numbers are based as closely as possible to our model. Please ask for our Proforma.

Exit Strategy

EXIT STRATEGY:

 

Rainbird Village will now be in full operation, with festivals, and cultural events in addition to our usual revenue streams. Full data collection aspects are in operation. The Village will now refinance the project through a Municipal Bond or other non-recourse funding and the investors will be exited. We are now ready to begin funding other villages. We hope our investors will come with us on the next adventure.
