  • Objectives
  • Murphy’s Law
  • High Valuation Trap
    • Problem:
    • Follow-on investors value lower than last
    • Forced to “cram down” last investors or no deal
    • Solution:
    • Understand downstream valuations
    .
  • Valuation
    • Consider the post $ cap table for the next round
    • And subsequent rounds to the exit
  • Term Sheet Structures
    • Common shares
    • Preferred shares
    • Convertible debt
    • Hint: this will all be thrown out with the next investment, keep it simple
    .
  • Investment Types
    • Common shares
    • Pros
      • Quick and inexpensive agreement
      • Alignment with entrepreneurs
    • Cons
      • No protection
    • Suggest
      • Include some rights often given to Prefs
    .
  • Investment Types
    • Preferred shares
    • Pros
      • Downside protection from rights
    • Cons
      • Time consuming and expensive agreement that will be replaced
    .
  • Investment Types
    • Convertible Debt
    • Pros
      • Downside protection from debt and rights
      • Quick and inexpensive agreement
      • Flexibility on valuation – discount to next round or warrants
    • Cons
      • Typical discount of 20% to 30% is not high enough reward
    .
  • Suggested Rights
    • Follow/tag/drag along
      • Follow – right to sell if management sells
        • Also called tag along or co-sale rights
      • Drag – if majority want to sell, 100% sell
    • ROFR of financings, right to participate
    • Restrictions on changing rights, issuing debentures or stock, or completing mergers or acquisitions
    .
  • Final thoughts
    • Make a decision quickly, don’t drag out entrepreneurs
    • When “No”, try to offer advice
    • Focus on your domain expertise
    • Invest in people . Don’t try to cover all downside risks with deal terms.
