Help Me Stop EIS

Help Me Stop Limited (“HMS” or the “Company”) was set up in 2018 to provide highly effective yet affordable treatment for adults suffering from addiction. Inspired by the “Dayhab” treatment model he had seen successfully proven in the US, Founder and CEO Tim Smith opened the UK’s first treatment centre of this kind in Acton, West London, in September 2019.

In March 2020, HMS raised £0.4 million from Wealth Club investors under EIS. The funding round was cut short due to the impact of the pandemic. 

Now, the Company is providing an investor update as well as an investment proposal to raise up to £750,000, of which £500,000 has already been secured from existing and new investors. The minimum investment is £20,000 and you can apply online. 

Please note, the information provided – in the Investor Update, Investment Proposal and Information Memorandum – has been prepared by the Company. Wealth Club has not independently reviewed or verified the information. Please read the offer documents carefully to form your own view and ensure you wholly understand the potential benefits and risks.

Help Me Stop EIS – reviewFees and structure

Investors will pay no direct initial or ongoing charges.

Wealth Club Limited will receive from the Company a fee of 6% of the funds raised, which it has the option to re-invest via a warrant.

On exit, Wealth Club is entitled to a 10% performance fee, which will be deducted from net investor proceeds by KCP Nominees. The hurdle is investors achieving an exit greater than 2x subscription amount (before tax relief).

Wealth Club investors will invest using a nominee structure. This service is provided by KCP Nominees Limited. Please refer to the IM for further details.

Risks – important 

This, like all investments available through Wealth Club, is only for experienced investors happy to make their own investment decisions without advice.

This investment is high risk so should only form part of a balanced portfolio and you should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. They also tend to be illiquid and hard to sell and value.

Before you invest, please carefully read the full investment pack – including the IM which contains further details on the considerable risks, alongside the Wealth Club Risks and Commitments.

This is a single company offer with no diversification. It involves investing in an early-stage, loss-making business, which is by nature high risk and prone to failure. You could lose the amount you invest.

The value of tax benefits depends on circumstances and tax rules can change. 

An exit could take longer than the three-year minimum holding period.
