I also read it as a way for them to give more shares to their employees. Basically subsidizing their employee-owner goals. Which in itself would devalue the shares?Basically that you're giving them money with no promise of any kind of return. You'll get no dividends and there's no market to sell your shares. They're not regulated by the rules and agencies that regulate stocks, and you are totally putting your faith into them giving you some kind of return even though it's not promised or in any way suggested how it could conceivably happen. Also, they just borrowed $17 million from two banks but need more.
I like MT a lot, think they'll probably continue to be successful, have some money to invest and wouldn't mind investing in the right brewery with the right terms, but this seems like a cockstaggering leap of faith.
