Independent Review

In 2020 EquityLine MIC commissioned a third-party analysis of our business model (current and planned) to validate our business strategies and to remain transparent to our shareholders. Robert Baldauf ICD.D was given full access to our business over a two-month period.  We believe his conclusions speak to the strength of our corporate group:

“Despite the perceived risks and challenges inherent in the investments in real estate generally, and mortgages specifically, this independent analysis concludes that the business model and financial models developed by the executive team [of EquityLine Mortgage Investment Corporation] are reasonable and sound. The elements of the model and intended outcomes and the methodology and mechanics to achieve those outcomes are in place.”

“General Conclusions about the [EquityLine] Financial Model:

  • The financial outlook for the organization is effectively represented by the financial model.
  • The financial outlook represents an effective and combined approach of people, process, and technology to deliver the intended results of the financial model.
  • The outlook for growth is reasonable and likely achievable based on the projected capital inflows and mortgage deal flow.
  • No single element of the model can succeed without the inputs and contributions of other elements.
  • The financial model supports the key outcomes to shareholders, including an effective redemption policy and fixed* rate of return.”
