SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC Helps Raise More Than $45,000 in Latest Philanthropic Efforts

Greenville, S.C. | April 18, 2017 –Today, SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC (“SANDLAPPER”) announced helping raise over $33,000 for Center for Developmental Services (“CDS”) at the 2017 Cornhole Derby and $12,000 for T.E.A.R.S (True Evangelism Always Requires Sacrifice) during its annual conference.

The 2nd Annual Cornhole Derby to benefit the CCDS took place on Saturday, April 1 at the Trailblazer Park in Travelers Rest. SANDLAPPER served as the presenting sponsor for the second year. CDS is the largest multi-disciplinary treatment facility in the Upstate for children with disabilities and developmental delays. In one location, children receive services in therapy, diagnosis, school placement, day care needs for the medically fragile, and a family support network. The partnership is comprised of Clarity; Family Connection of SC; the Preschool Special Education Program of Greenville County Schools; KidVentures of Thrive Upstate (formerly the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Board); and four programs of the Greenville Health System: Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, Kidnetics, The Wonder Center, and Prosthetics and Orthotics. CDS and its partners serve over 6,000 children and their families each year on property donated by the First Presbyterian Church at 29 North Academy Street in Greenville.

“It is a true honor for SANDLAPPER to once again partner with the local community to benefit the compassionate work of CDS,” said Trevor Gordon, SANDLAPPER Founder and CEO, board member and past Board Chair of CDS. “Because of CDS, Upstate children with disabilities, along with their families, have the resources, attention and care to enable them to reach their full potential.”

In addition, during the 6th Annual SANDLAPPER Securities Sales Conference, SANDLAPPER raised $12,000 for T.E.A.R.S (True Evangelism Always Requires Sacrifice) to support children in the Dominican Republic. The T.E.A.R.S. mission is to plant and enable churches to achieve community, interdependency, intimacy and accountability by becoming gospel-centered, disciple-producing bodies that are proactive in their communities and autonomous in function. Our main focus must be building Christ-centered relationships, discipleship, evangelism, and training believers in the discovery and development of their gifts, talents and vision for the enhancement of their communities and the advancing of the Kingdom of God.

“It has become a great and lasting tradition at our national meeting to raise much needed capital for various organizations,” states Gordon. “We were excited to support T.E.A.R.S. and their efforts in the Dominican. Our fund raising is going directly to building a much-needed high school to benefit very at-risk children, and I am proud of our team and sponsors of the conference for their contribution to the cause. Since we began our ‘conference philanthropy’ six years ago, we have collectively raised around $50,000 for several worthy charitable organizations throughout the community.”

SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC raises $40.34 million for Six Land Acquisitions for Webb Creek Management Group, LLC

Greenville, S.C. | January 13, 2017 – SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC (“SANDLAPPER”) raised $40.34 million for six land acquisitions syndications (“Companies”) sponsored by Webb Creek Management Group, LLC (“Webb Creek”) in 2016.  Webb Creek Management Group, LLC, is a Georgia-based firm that provides consultative services to individuals and company landowners seeking alternative uses of their property to maximize return.  Since 2011 they have successfully worked to secure conservation easements on thousands of acres of raw, unimproved land in the Southeast, protecting this land from future development and providing landowners with positive returns in the process.  SANDLAPPER has been the exclusive placement agent for Webb Creek since 2013 and has raised almost $108.6 million in 22 separate land syndications.

The Companies acquired approximately 3,077 of raw, unimproved land in Polk County, FL, Roane County, TN and Benton County, TN.  Geological testing of the Florida properties determined the highest economic use for the owners would be to quarry/mine limestone from the land.  The Tennessee properties are optimally placed for residential development.  Instead of developing these properties, the owners have all chosen to give up ALL development rights on each parcel of land, thus preserving the land for future generations placing the properties into a Conservation Easement.

“Conservations easements are voluntary encumbrances on land that create a permanent and legally enforceable land preservation agreement between a landowner and a qualified conservation organization,” said SANDLAPPER Securities Founder and CEO, Trevor Gordon.  “Making this donation to conservancy provides a significant charitable contribution individuals can take against their AGI when filing their taxes on the amount of value between the ‘conservation land value’ and the ‘highest and best use value’ of the land.  Conservation easements are a great win-win situation for the high income earner.  Land is preserved for future generations and the donor receives a significant write off, making this a great tool for the community and for an individual’s tax planning.”

“We were thrilled with the success of these deals in 2016,” said Bryan Kelley, CEO of Webb Creek Management Group.  “We are proud to partner with the SANDLAPPER Securities team to provide the opportunity to make larger investments in land than many may be able to accomplish alone.  We look forward to continued success in 2017.”

SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC raises over $3 million for Trenton Black River I, LP

Greenville, S.C. | January 11, 2017 – SANDLAPPER Securities, LLC (“SANDLAPPER”) raised more than $3 million for the Trenton-Black River I, LP (“Trenton-Black River”) a 40 Well Drilling Program sponsored by John Henry Oil Corporation (“John Henry”).  John Henry, a Kentucky-based corporation and the Managing General Partner of Trenton-Black River, has deep roots in the oil fields of Appalachia specializing in hydrocarbon exploration and development and over 90 years of highly successful regional experience.

Since breaking initial impounds and putting investment dollars to work, Trenton-Black River has drilled 14 test holes and six wells with two showing to be in very good oil zones and are scheduled to be completed for production to begin.  John Henry is currently running 25% ahead of budget on Trenton-Black River.

“Looking to shore up some year end tax deductions, drilling programs have often been highly sought out investment vehicles,” said SANDLAPPER Securities Founder and CEO, Trevor Gordon.  “With recent weakness in oil prices caused many to pull back from the sector in 2016, but those who see the continued strength on the sector stand to make sizable gains in oil as we have seen significant rebounds from market bottoms as of late.”

“We are thrilled with what SANDLAPPER was able to achieve for us in 2016,” said Connie Love, President and CEO of John Henry Oil Corporation.  “They understood the intrinsic value in the sector and really pushed hard for their clients to see beyond recent weakness in the space and look at the longer-term potential as oil prices rise.” Love continues, “Having these capital dollars to deploy in 2016 we were able to maximize our investments in equipment that had been repriced during the oil bottoming period and allowed us to exploit certain market conditions to ultimately create greater value for our partners and hopefully maximize profits.”
