  • High-yielding investment in timber processing sector, factoring-type financing for a sawn timber and wooden pallets manufacturing company.
  • Secured debt, 20,67% planned annual return.
  • Investment principal buyback is available at 5% penalty rate.

Project description

The company PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA is a Latvian venture that is successfully working on the market of producing sawn dimensional timber products and different types of wooden pallets since 2012. The company operates modern production facilities in Riga, Latvia, which allows it to optimize raw products purchasing and logistics costs. Latvia is one of the richest countries in Europe in terms of forest – approximately one half of its territory is covered with woods. A vast variety and wide availability of different types of local raw timber makes woodworking industry one of the country’s most advanced and well-known at different export markets. PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA uses trademark “Made in Latvia” as an additional competitive advantage for its produce.

Flexibility is another key asset of PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA. Dimensional timber it produces has vast amount of different sizes, making it suitable for a wide variety of purposes of use in different markets with diverse standards.

The same refers to the wooden pallets, produced by PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA. Depending on specification of cargos and type of transportation and storage, the company offers pallets of different construction, durability, and area. For the production of separate order of pallets, it is also possible to use clients’ drawings and other requirements. The range of materials, which are used in the production process of the pallets include planks, beams, plywood, OSB, pressed cubes, as well as other materials. Examples of company’s produce can be seen in the pictures below.

PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA is looking to attract factoring-type financing enabling it to accomplish additional purchases of raw timber and increase sales, mainly to the export markets. The PALLET TIMBER COMPANY SIA currently is actively expanding to new markets (such as Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Scandinavian countries) but additional funds will also be used in order to increase exports to current clients. The main export markets for the company’s produce include Germany (up to 48% of the company’s produce), Poland (16%) Belgium (8%), the Netherlands (7%), and other countries (21%). Advantageous geographical location allows fast delivery of company’s produces both across the Europe and also to the Eastern direction by land or sea.


Wood is the most preferred material for pallets across the globe, as it offers huge advantages in terms of response time and low startup cost for customized designs. Wooden pallets sometimes end up with sharp splinters causing injuries or protruding nails that damage food packaging. But due to the low costs, wood pallets will continue to dominate product sales in most areas across the globe. However, wood pallets these days are largely being replaced with plastic pallets. As food safety compliance and reusability is a growing attraction among manufacturers, they are looking for sustainable material handling options and thus, plastic pallets will continue to gain acceptance in a range of industries including foods & beverage, pharmaceuticals, groceries and automotive.

With a huge incremental opportunity, the global pallets market is projected to grow at more than 5% CAGR during the period of assessment.

During the period 2012 – 2016, the global pallets market expanded at a CAGR of 4.7%. However, during the forecast period – that is between 2017 and 2025 – the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% owing to increasing demand for better and safe transportation coupled with the rise in demand for pallets from various industries like food, agriculture, chemicals etc. The global pallets market is projected to represent incremental opportunity of more than US$ 25 Bn between 2017 and 2025.

Project description

Latvian company SIA MERKURS-RIGANTE has been working in the sphere of warehouse services and logistics since 1994. Recently the company launched a new business direction – delivery and wholesale of fresh fruits produced in Spain, Greece, Bulgaria, and Serbia on the market of Baltic states, Russia, Belarus, Kazakstan and other CIS countries. The assortment includes different kinds of stone fruits, strawberries, blueberry, citruses, apples, etc.

The business network is already active since June 2018. Having a number of contracted European suppliers, long-term experience in transportation and warehousing, possibility to use own infrastructure for the trade operations, necessary expertise in importation procedures, and high demand for high-quality product makes this business direction exceptionally promising and high-profitable.

SIA MERKURS-RIGANTE is looking to attract a factoring-type secured funding for the period of 6 months in order to finance additional deliveries of shipments of fruits to its partners within already established trade network.


The market for imported fruits and berries in the Eastern Europe and CIS is still considered fairly underdeveloped and full of opportunities in comparison to Western Europe and US. A lot of people there still do not consider fresh fruits and berries to be an essential part of their food basket as consumption of these products currently is approximately 3,5 times lower than in the West. At the same time, as a result of the latest healthy lifestyle trends, growing personal income, and a number of other factors the demand for qualitative fruits and berries is increasing at a constant rate.

Increasing demand cannot be met with local supply, mainly due to the climate conditions, which are not favourable for growing good-quality fruits and berries as well as weaker and low-automated local farming sector. It provides a lot of opportunities for the companies that are able to import products of a necessary quality from other economic regions.

The company was founded by Olga and Edward Peterson. Olga as promising young architect and Edward with an expertise in online marketing started the brand in 2015.

Since day one INCH2 recognized the possibilities of e-commerce and started to look for ways to gather global audience using the latest online marketing technology and combining that with beautifully handcrafted shoe designs. INCH2 digital marketing campaigns reach around 20’000’000 people monthly and since foundation the company has sold more than 22’000 pairs of shoes generating 183’968 EUR in 2016, 1’651’505 EUR in 2017,  2’834’892 EUR by end of September 2018,  and expecting to reach around 5 million in sales by end of 2018  with top markets in the USA, Russia, Germany, UK and France.

As a rapidly growing start up business INCH2 faced a situation where demand for the shoes out-weighted previous production capacity as a result delivery time is around 2 months.
INCH2 is looking for an investment that would give the brand a possibility to expand their sales offline through the most desired prime shopping venues and to enlarge stock for the existing women’s collection as well as just launched men’s collection and bags. After entering retail channels and reducing delivery time for online orders by having a valid stock, it is predicted to have a huge increase of INCH2 loyal customer orders around the globe.

Grupeer will launch a new type of loan – amortizing loans

Grupeer logo

Grupeer announced that today they will launch a new type of loan for investment! They will introduce amortizing loans by their trusted loan originator SIA Monify. One of Grupeer’s core competencies is diversification tools: geographical, loan type (real estate or business loans), and now loan repayment schedule.

How does it work?

Currently, the principal is returned back to the investor when the maturity date comes, and interest is calculated based on the total loan amount. The key difference of new amortizing loans is that principal repayment will take place over the loan period and interest is calculated from residual loan amount (total loan amount less principal repayments according to schedule).

Why is it good for investors?

Grupeer’s investors will be able to diversify held investment portfolio and considerably reduce credit risk. Credit risk is associated with the failure to return the principal at maturity. All Grupeer loans are protected by BuyBack guarantee- when loan originator is obliged to pay the principal and interest rate in case borrower defaults. However, there is still unlikely scenario that loan originator fails. In that case, Grupeer will facilitate the investment return by hiring a lawyer, who will represent the interest of all investors. However, this will take time and will cause inconvenience. So, with amortization loans, this risk is reduced.

The second benefit is a sooner availability of investment principal, which can be used for reinvestment. Setting up Auto-Invest function will automatically invest all money monthly received and will even further increase the return, as your money (which were sitting in the body of the loan) will be earning in the new project.

Please note, that because amortizing loans are a new product on the platform, auto-invest strategy can’t filter yet the amortizing loans vs. non-amortizing. So, if you do not wish your funds to be invested in the new type of loan, please disable the auto-invest temporarily.

New Envestio project – Crypto-mining Farm 200GTX1080ti – 2nd half

Envestio logo

Envestio informed today that a new investment opportunity is available at the portal to all registered participants.

By launching the project “Crypto-mining Farm 200GTX1080ti – 2nd half” (Project ID EN018051), by Baltreit SIA, an investment project owner that successfully completed several investment projects in the beginning of 2018, Envestio continues to expand the successful cooperation with the representatives of crypto-mining industry.

This loan is fully secured by mixed collateral and personal guarantee of the main beneficiary of Baltreit SIA.

As usual, you can invest any amount starting from 1 EUR. Minimum deposit to the investment account is EUR 100.

If you invest for the first time at Envestio don’t forget that you can get € 5 and a 0.5% cashback bonus for the investments made in the first nine months (270 days), more details HERE.

Investment opportunity

  • High-yielding investment in crypto-mining sector, financing of a crypto-mining hardware production process.
  • 22% planned annual return.
  • Investment principal buyback is available at 5% penalty rate.

Project description

Baltreit SIA is a company, established by IT professionals in order to conduct different operations on the crypto-mining market, such as assembling and selling crypto-mining hardware, direct crypto-mining using own hardware as well as management of crypto-mining farms, owned by external parties. The company is constantly introducing new approaches in order to make mining process more efficient and achieve high profitability even in changing environment, which is observed on the crypto-mining market in 2018.

Until either Volta or Turing comes along to replace it, the Nvidia GTX remains and will remain one of the most powerful graphics cards available in 2018. However, as good as it is a gaming GPU, it’s also an excellent mining GPU, but there are a few issues that stop it from ascending to the top of this list. For instance, it’s an extremely expensive GPU, and it draws more power compared to its competition. This means you’ll be getting less of a return on your investment, and it’ll take a while longer to cover your costs. However, if you don’t mind spending the extra cash for this GPU, (or if you want to game with the best graphics card around), then you’ll be happy with the results, as if you do a bit of tweaking you can reach a hash rate of 32 mh/s.TechRadar, September 2018

Interest payments to investors will be covered by the income from other Baltreit SIA projects. Repayment of principal will be made from the money, received from the purchaser of the equipment.

Baltreit SIA is looking for short-term bridge-financing amounting to EUR 75,000 for 6 months, necessary for purchasing and assembling a set of mining hardware that will be afterwards sold to one of the company’s clients. The whole order consists of 200 GTX 1080ti graphic processing units (GPUs) that will be set up inside special rigs of a custom construction. These rigs allow centralized management of the whole mining farm, effective cooling, and lower electricity consumption, resulting in higher net profit from one GPU. In their turn, aforementioned GPUs allow great operational flexibility, thus ensuring longer life cycle of the equipment built on their basis in comparison to specialized mining equipment that can mine only specific crypto-currencies.


Cryptocurrency market currently experiences exponential growth with total capitalization exceeding EUR 220 billion in September, 2018. This is a rapid increase from beginning of the 2017, when gross capitalization amounted more than 10 times lower number, i.e. EUR 20 billion. The market remains highly volatile, however, the technology behind it is constantly developing and the involved number of important players is growing.

Bitcoin remains the leading currency on the market with around 54% of total capitalization value. It is followed by Etherium with 10% and Ripple on the third place with 8%.

An increasing number of traditional institutions such as central banks, stock exchanges, and even some governments are demonstrating increasing interest to the blockchain industry market.

Sample repayment schedule

  • 15.11.2018 – EUR 18.68
  • 15.12.2018 – EUR 18.08
  • 15.01.2019 – EUR 18.68
  • 15.02.2019 – EUR 18.68
  • 15.03.2019 – EUR 16.88
  • 15.04.2019 – EUR 1018.68

Total expected return: EUR 1 109.68
