The planned IPO will afford any investor the opportunity to invest in the renowned St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado (the “Property”). The Company plans to offer 1,675,000 shares at $20.00 per share and intends to apply to list its common stock on the NYSE American stock exchange under the ticker symbol “AJAX.”
The St. Regis Aspen Resort is a full-service, 179-room luxury hotel with upscale restaurants, a private spa, 29,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor conference and banquet venues, and a heated outdoor pool with panoramic views of the Aspen mountainside. The Property, which is managed by a subsidiary of Marriott International Inc., the world’s largest hotel company, consistently attracts a wide range of guests including families, celebrities and top executives due to its location, amenities and year-round activities including world-class skiing and cultural and sports events.
The Company is led by experienced real estate and hospitality investor Stephane De Baets, Chief Executive Officer, President and a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). Mr. De Baets has approximately 20 years of experience in asset management, financial structuring, and mergers and acquisitions. Corporate finance veteran Michael Wirth serves as Aspen REIT’s Chief Financial Officer. Over the course of his more than 30-year career in the financial services and real estate sectors, Mr. Wirth has been involved with multiple IPOs of newly organized or start-up companies. Both Mr. De Baets and Mr. Wirth have a deep understanding of the St. Regis Aspen Resort’s operating performance as well as the opportunities that exist to enhance the Property’s long-term value, quality and attractiveness. Mr. De Baets is affiliated with the current owner of the Property.
“We plan to bring to the market a first-of-its-kind real estate offering that provides individual investors with the opportunity to own shares in a highly attractive, trophy asset in the St. Regis Aspen Resort,” said Mr. De Baets. “Historically, the chance to own a portion of an individual property of this caliber and stature was only available to institutions. With our offering, we are changing this model while at the same time providing individual investors with liquidity optionality for a single-asset investment. Our value proposition is innovative and, we believe, highly compelling.”
Maxim Group LLC will act as the lead managing selling agent for the offering. Aspen REIT intends to make history by being the first single-asset REIT to list on a national securities exchange in the United States.

Fake Medicines Continue to Threaten Consumers – EU Member States have an Obligation to Act21.2.2018 08:12 | Pressemelding
According to The Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacy in the EU (ASOP EU), the illegal manufacturing and distribution of fake medicines is an enormous and growing public health risk with an untold cost to lives. "Vast profits are made by organized criminal gangs who often use the proceeds to support other criminal activities. The Internet provides the ideal channel to buy illegally distributed fake medicines. Price, convenience and secrecy have driven consumer demand, creating the perfect environment for over 35,000 illegally operating websites." Under article 85d of the Falsified Medicines Directive, each EU Member State is obliged to raise awareness about the risks of buying medicines online. To better understand how countries are meeting these obligations to educate and protect consumers, the European Union’s Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacy (ASOP EU) and the European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines (EAASM), has convened a series of discussions with many Member States.
