Companies with services portfolio complementary 500 mln to 1 bln USD 0x to 1x to ABC which aim to: • enter ABC segment; 250 mln to 500 mln USD 1x to 3x • complement offerings for the current clients. 100 mln to 250 mln USD 3x to 5x 1.2. Companies already present in ABC segment (<50%), which aim to: < 100 mln USD > 5x • strengthen ABC segment. 1.3.

  27. 27. Sequoia Capital investment approach ELEMENTS OF SUSTAINABLE COMPANIES Start-ups with these characteristics have the best chance of becoming enduring companies. We like to partner with start-ups that have: 1 CLARITY OF PURPOSE Summarize the company’s business on the back of a business card. 2 LARGE MARKETS Address existing markets poised for rapid growth or change. A market on the path to a $1B potential allows for error and time for real margins to develop. 3 RICH CUSTOMERS Target customers who will move fast and pay a premium for a unique offering. 4 FOCUS Customers will only buy a simple product with a singular value proposition. 5 PAIN KILLERS Pick the one thing that is of burning importance to the customer then delight them with a compelling solution. Source: Sequoia Capital 27
  28. 28. Sequoia Capital investment approach 6 THINK DIFFERENTLY Constantly challenge conventional wisdom. Take the contrarian route. Create novel solutions. Outwit the competition. 7 TEAM DNA A company’s DNA is set in the first 90 days. All team members are the smartest or most clever in their domain. “A” level founders attract an “A” level team. 8 AGILITY Stealth and speed will usually help beat-out large companies. 9 FRUGALITY Focus spending on what’s critical. Spend only on the priorities and maximize profitability. 10 INFERNO Start with only a little money. It forces discipline and focus. A huge market with customers yearning for a product developed by great engineers requires very little firepower. Source: Sequoia Capital 28
  29. 29. LP-GP agreements 29
  30. 30. Private Equity fund structure terminology Investors which allocate money to PE/VC funds. They commit money directly (e.g., Limited Partners (LP) Family Offices), or on behalf of others (e.g., Pension funds) PE/VC fund manager who raises General Partners (GP) money through a fund legal vehicle Investee companies or entrepreneurs who get Investee company money and generate returns for GPs and LPs 30
  31. 31. Private Equity fund structure Limited Partners Distribution Institutional investors of proceeds • Pension funds • Sovereign wealth funds • Financial institutions HNWI Disbursement of commitments Carry Fund General Partners PE or VC firm Equity Exit Investment proceeds Investee company 31

  33. 33. LP-GP relationship Limited partnership structure entails arms’ length relationship and a five-ten year commitment • LPs choice comes out of a solving a broader asset allocation problem, which includes: risk/return, liquidity, transparency • LP makes three decisions: 1. Alternative assets among all investment options 2. VC/PE within alternative assets 3. Choice of the fund manager (GP) - the most important! • Once a GP is selected LPs want to ensure they will earn high returns. This requires that: 1. GPs do not act opportunistically 2. GPs devote full effort to the ‘fund’ 3. Right companies are selected 4. GPs report their returns faithfully 5. Exits from companies are efficient • GPs have to raise funds and choose LPs. • They also need to manage long-term relationships, as fundraising is repeated. • For this, they need to generate high returns (at least the perception of them) • GPs want LPs to provide commitments on time and keep their investment decisions as independent as possible 33
  34. 34. LP-GP relationship Criteria for selecting GPs in first funds Partners' previous success in PE Proposed investment strategy Quality of the partners' network of contacts Partners' previous experience in working together The level and structure of fees Partners' previous experience in non-PE jobs The fund's size Partners' quality of education Commitments to this fund by top LPs The opportunity to access follow-on funds Co-investment opportunities The advisor opinion 0 1 2 3 4 Source: Marco Da Rin 34
  35. 35. LP-GP relationship Criteria for selecting GPs in seasoned funds Proposed investment strategy Stability of the team at partner level GP's reported aggregate multiples on previous funds GP's reputation GP's reported IRR on previous funds Quality of the partner network of contacts The level and structure of fees Renewed commitment to this fund by its existing LPs The fund's size Valuation of unrealized investments (NAV) in GP portfolio The change in fund size from previous funds Commitments to this fund by top LPs Partners' quality of education Co-investment opportunities The advisor opinion 0 1 2 3 4 Source: Marco Da Rin 35
  36. 36. LP-GP relationship Reasons for refusing re-investment 30% 20% 10% 0% The fund's size Strategy changed Disappointing Key GP partners left Other reasons increased too much performance 36
  37. 37. Typical PE/VC fund remuneration structure Management fee 2% LP GP Carry 20% Management fee of 2% is charged on the total amount of committed/invested capital. Carry is received upon exit from portfolio investments. • First, LPs get total commitments at cost plus hurdle rate (8-10% annual). • Second, remaining exit proceeds split while 80% goes to LPs and 20% to GPs. Carry is the main part of total remuneration and its existence ensures that the interests of LPs and GP are aligned and GP focused on value maximization and successful exits. 37
  38. 38. Typical PE/VC fund remuneration structure: simplified example Management fee 2% LP GP Carry 20% $300mln fund 1 Management fee 300*2% = $6mln annually 2 Carry Assumption that the fund makes 3x cash-on-cash over 5 years Exit proceeds 3*300 = $900mln 1) Cost plus hurdle goes to LP: 300*(1+0.08)^5 = $441mln 2) LP gets 80% of remaining proceeds: 80%*(900-441) = $367mln 3) GP gets carry of 20%: 20%*(900-441) = $92mln 38
  39. 39. Alternative structure of Family Office or captive PE fund PE/VC fund integrated with an investor LP • Family office • Captive fund May have different goals: • No need to raise funding • Non-financial goals GP Companies 39
