TERMS OF SERVICE
This Website is maintained and operated by BondIt LLC (“BondIt”). BondIt’s business includes providing consulting services to clients on strategic business matters. BondIt is not a registered broker/dealer or an Investment Advisor. BondIt does not offer or participate in offers of securities for sale or provide investment advice to others. Nothing on this Website is intended to constitute (i) an offer to sell or buy, or a solicitation of an offer to sell or buy securities from BondIt; (ii) investment advice or an offer to provide such advice; or (iii) a basis for making any investment decision.
BondIt provides a wide range of services to media and entertainment companies, production entities, investment banks, private equity funds, venture capital investors and other clients based on the following terms:
Advice to Media and Entertainment companies, Private Equity, Venture Capital and Strategic Investors – BondIt provides consulting services to clients on either a retainer or project basis. These include identifying potential investment opportunities, evaluation of transactions being contemplated by clients, development of strategic plans for companies and evaluation of media project market commercialization strategies and opportunities. These services are provided by contract directly to clients and do not place BondIt in the role of a Broker/Dealer.
Financial Transaction Advice – BondIt is not a registered Broker/Dealer and does not act as an agent for buyers or sellers of businesses. This is consistent with the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 which directs that brokers and dealers in securities register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and become members of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). The SEC considers the term “broker” to generally include persons providing advice regarding financial transactions who accept “transaction-based” compensation. Transaction-based compensation is defined as any commission or finder’s fee which is dependent or based upon the execution of a transaction. More broadly, advisers on buying or selling companies are subject to SEC regulation because transaction advice generally involves the transfer of securities – typically, equity interests in the company being bought or sold.
Securities Services Provided by an Investment Bank – If potential clients require assistance in executing a transaction involving the purchase or sale of securities, as opposed to the sale of assets or negotiation of licensing arrangements, BondIt typically introduces them to an investment bank. Clients enter into a contract with such investment bank to receive the requested services. BondIt cannot receive transaction-based fees.
Conflicts of Interest – Despite the fact that most BondIt clients operate in one or more parts of the media and entertainment industry, conflict of interest issues between BondIt clients have been very rare. In part, this is because BondIt works with clients who have different investment objectives or have different roles in the media and entertainment industry. The following principles have proven over time to minimize conflict concerns on behalf of clients:
- Transactions Between Clients– In situations where one BondIt client is acting as a broker and another as either a buyer or seller, BondIt makes clear at the very beginning which side it will work on. Confidential information which becomes known to BondIt is not provided to the counter party.
- Cross Consulting– In situations where BondIt introduces a service provider to a retainer client – an advertising agency, for example – BondIt does not accept referral fees from the service provider. Said another way, BondIt typically receives fees from one party or the other in a client situation, but not both.
- Idea Introductions– Proprietary ideas developed by BondIt are presented to only one client at a time; the one judged most appropriate for the size and shape of investment based on their expressed interests. Only if they are formally declined are they considered for other clients.
Non-Disclosure Agreements with Others – BondIt is sometimes made a party to non-disclosure agreements signed by retained clients. BondIt works to adhere to the terms of these agreements, including the return of confidential material when it is requested. For this reason, BondIt is sometimes unable to work on a specific M&A or consulting assignment.
Information You Submit is Not Confidential – Please do not submit any information or other materials that you consider to be confidential, proprietary or a trade secret. We receive and review a large number of media and entertainment plans, business plans and other potentially proprietary information and materials, many of which are similar and/or overlapping. We cannot accept responsibility for avoiding, or protecting against, any particular use or disclosure of any confidential or proprietary plans, information or other materials in the absence of our express written agreement to do so. Any plans, information and other materials you submit may be used or disclosed by us for any purpose and in any manner, as we determine in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to track visitors to, and usage of, this Website through “cookies” and similar techniques and to use any resulting information as we determine in our sole discretion.

In particular, you must not misappropriate the design or content of this Website and you must not alter or deface such design or content in any way.

In connection with BondIt’s consulting activities, we occasionally become subject to a variety of confidentiality obligations to companies and production entities and other third parties.

Such forward-looking statements are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including the financial performance of the Company and the viability of its technology.
