US Capital Global Securities, LLC (“USCGS”) is offering 80 Membership Units In USCIM Fund XXXIV Intellibidder, LLC (“Fund XXXIV”) a pooled investment vehicle, on a “best efforts” basis. The Fund XXXIV will be managed by San Francisco-based asset management firm US Capital Investment Management, LLC (“USCIM” or the “Manager”), investing in Senior Secured Convertible Notes of Intellibidder Corporation (“Intellibidder” or the “Company”). The Company plans to use the proceeds raised in this new offering to provide working capital to bring Company’s patent-pending technology services to market at scale and provide an opportunity for long-term growth through the acquisition of direct interests in Company Securities.
Based in Dallas, TX, Intellibidder is developing a new proprietary and patent pending B2B e-commerce platform that facilitates the buying and selling of bulk commercial-grade general goods. Currently, popular B2B e-commerce systems, such as Alibaba and eBay, act as an open marketplace for buyers and sellers to connect. While productive, these systems are inefficient: buyers often do not receive optimal pricing and many sellers are left unable to participate and compete. The new Intellibidder platform is expected to have the advantage of aggregating supply, demand, and logistics, thereby delivering an optimum price-per-unit to purchasers as well as garnering significantly greater supplier participation. Intellibidder aims to be the world’s most intelligent B2B e-commerce system.
Company’s Product Offering & Value Proposition.
Intellibidder was founded to create its patent pending and visionary technology platform for use in business-to-business e-commerce. Intellibidder is unique in its method of aggregating multiple sources of demand to create economies of scale for greater purchasing power while at the same time, and with a novel approach, also aggregating multiple suppliers and logistics options for greater economic participation.

Company’s Target Market and Growth Strategy
The Intellibidder Platform is applicable to virtually every B2B bulk-purchasing industry, world-wide. We organize our target market by industries, which include municipalities and other government entities, service and hospitality, manufacturing/construction, medical supplies, and many more. Such B2B e-commerce industries typically form associations comprised of large amounts of members. Key to growing the Intellibidder Platform is to engage with all respective industry associations to market our value. Because sellers and manufacturers tend to turn to where buyers are, we have made the platform free for buyers to utilize, thereby seeking to grow the platform’s userbase at an accelerated pace.

Company’s Revenue Model
Intellibidder’s revenue model aims to benefit from the four different channels it has identified: buyer-side revenues, seller-side revenues, logistical-side revenues, and internal advertising. The plan is that the platform will be free for buyers to use, while sellers will pay a nominal subscription fee. The platform plans to garner a nominal percentage as a transaction fee for each transaction. In addition, the platform expects to earn commissions on escrow, payment processing, factoring, and other services. In total, twelve separate revenue streams can possibly be derived from the four channels under design. As the platform grows, revenue growth is expected to increase alongside transaction volumes.

Key risks are listed on page 4 which may impede the achievement of the forecasts and valuation appearing herein.
1. While Intellibidder plans to generate revenues in twelve different ways, these current projections are only based on three: 1) Seller subscriptions;
2) Transaction Fee (1%); and 3) Auction Posting Fee. This is because the remaining sources are commission-based and to be determined at a later date. However, and by far the largest driver of revenue is the Transaction Fee of 1% of the value of the total order process. Our very conservative estimates here are based upon the following assumptions: only 1-5% of buyers on the system will actually participate in a transaction, spending an average of $500-1500 in total, and only half the total number of transactions will complete in a given month. These numbers are also based upon conservative numbers of products offered on our platform as we continue to grow.
2. Includes development of prototype, full build, and continuing development.
3. We will seek premium consulting services for marketing and technical expertise.
4. Senior Secured Convertible Notes are expected to convert upon $9 Million Series A Financing in 2018.
5. Cash commissions of five and one-half percent (5.50%) on total raise of $11,000,000 and $35,000 in other fees.
6. The Board, in evaluating the circumstances of the Company, may elect to pay dividends and/or expand operations.

You should be aware that an investment in Units of the Issuer, and the Issuer's investment in Company Securities, involves considerable risks, including the possible loss of all or a material portion of your investment.

The abbreviated risks set forth below, as well as the detailed risk factors set forth in the Private Placement Memorandum and Supplement, are not the only risks facing investors.
The abbreviated risks set forth below, as well as the detailed risk factors set forth in the Private Placement Memorandum and Supplement, are not the only risks facing investors.
The Company is subject to a number of significant risks that could result in a reduction in its value and the value of the Company Securities, potentially including, but not limited to:
- Early-stage company with an unproven business model, a new and unproven enterprise technology model and a short operating history, which makes it difficult to evaluate current business and future prospects and may increase the risk of your investment.
- As an early-stage company there are no employee records or compensation programs in place with management. The lack of contracts with employees means undefined employer-employee relationships; i.e. there are no workplace policies available to guide appropriate or inappropriate behavior within the business, as well as compensation. This could have negative implications for human resources.
- The difficulties Company faces in managing rapid growth in personnel and operations.
- Pricing pressure could adversely impact Company’s planned pricing structure and have an adverse effect on Issuer’s results of operations.
- The rapidly changing technological, social, economic and regulatory developments that requires a wide-ranging set of expertise and intellectual capital.
- For the Company to successfully compete and grow, it must retain, recruit and develop the necessary personnel who can provide the needed expertise across the entire spectrum of its intellectual capital needs.
- Competitors may be much larger than the Company, have better name and/or brand recognition than the Company, and have far greater financial and other resources.
Investors must understand that by purchasing Units they are voluntarily assuming all of the risks of the investment, including any and all risks relating to the Company and Company Securities, whether disclosed in this Fund Summary, Offering Memorandum and Supplement or not.
