  • What is a valuation cap?

    A valuation cap is something that applies to convertible notes. A convertible note is a security that is a hybrid of both debt and equity. Notes are issued in the place of priced equity, typically when a company is raising less than a million dollars and does not want to generate the legal expenses associated with a priced round. When the company issues a larger amount of capital, the notes will have the option to “convert” into the newly issued securities at a pre-set “discount” to the price of the follow-on round. These discounts typically range from 15 to 25 percent. However, in order to provide investors with some of the protections of a priced round, they add a”cap” to the valuation. The “cap” sets the highest valuation that can be used to determine the conversion price of the notes. ...

  • Common Stock vs. Convertible Note

    Common Stock vs. Convertible Note Brought to you by: Rick Citron, Citron and Deutsch Often when people are starting a new company, they have trouble coming up with a valuation for that company. When they go to sell stock, they may want a valuation that is much higher than what investors are willing to pay. The solution for that is a convertible note, where somebody invests the money as a promissory note and then when you raise your money, they convert their note into stock usually at a discount of anywhere from 10%-50%. It all depends upon how much risk the original investors took. Convertible notes work in terms of not having to set a valuation. They're tougher later on because when you go to raise your money, you're going to hand out stock at a lower valuation. And if your valuation wh...

A valuation cap is something that applies to convertible notes. A convertible note is a security that is a hybrid of both debt and equity. Notes are issued in the place of priced equity, typically when a company is raising less than a million dollars and does not want to generate the legal expenses associated with a priced round. When the company issues a larger amount of capital, the notes will have the option to “convert” into the newly issued securities at a pre-set “discount” to the price of the follow-on round. These discounts typically range from 15 to 25 percent. However, in order to provide investors with some of the protections of a priced round, they add a”cap” to the valuation. The “cap” sets the highest valuation that can be used to determine the conversion price of the notes. For example: If the notes have a 20 percent discount and a 5 million dollar cap, and the next round is priced at $5 million, the notes will convert as though they were originally priced at $4 million. However, if the next round is priced at $10 million, the notes will convert at a $5 million price instead of $8 million, as $5 million was the “cap” on the price of the original equity. This allows companies to postpone setting a valuation while protecting the upside of investors to a reasonable extent, as the lower the conversion valuation, the more equity the investor receives.

We love it! It is an excellent way to manage the uncertainty and cost to estimate a company’s valuation. It does not mean that it reduces the risk or eliminates the due diligence process. Yet it makes a lot of sense when both parties – fund seeker and provider- want to shift the discussion on valuation to a later round of investment, when the company is more credible and when new funds are expected. Convertible notes provide an agreement that defines the amount of capital provided to the company, the interest rate, and three new concepts: cap, discount, and conversion. Interest rates are usually a little higher than traditional loans. Valuation Cap or Cap refers to the maximum valuation that is accepted as appropriate for both the fund seeker and supplier. Discount refers to the benefit an investor/lender receives in terms of a lower value of the company’s equity in future rounds of investments. That means that beyond the interest, there is an upside to the investor/lender that chooses to convert to equity by using the money owed by the company to purchase shares at a discounted price that the price accepted in that funding round. The amount of the discount is negotiable, but a good rule of thumb is 20 to 25 percent per annum. This has to be balanced with the cap rate described before. An alternative to discounts are warrants. A warrant is an option to purchase a certain number of shares at a pre-determined price. It is more complicated and less common than discounts as it focuses on the funds that are loaned or invested and less on the new valuation of the company. Convertible notes are also flexible in the sense that it is an agreement between parties that are less scrutinized than financial institutions. It is fairly common for the parties to make adjustments as the company evolves.

Common Stock vs. Convertible Note Brought to you by: Rick Citron, Citron and Deutsch Often when people are starting a new company, they have trouble coming up with a valuation for that company. When they go to sell stock, they may want a valuation that is much higher than what investors are willing to pay. The solution for that is a convertible note, where somebody invests the money as a promissory note and then when you raise your money, they convert their note into stock usually at a discount of anywhere from 10%-50%. It all depends upon how much risk the original investors took. Convertible notes work in terms of not having to set a valuation. They're tougher later on because when you go to raise your money, you're going to hand out stock at a lower valuation. And if your valuation when you're going to raise your money isn't high enough, you can really get diluted early on in the formation of your company.

So you've issued convertible promissory notes to your investors, a year or two has passed, but you have not had a qualified financing, and now your notes are nearing maturity. What are your options? In this video, I talk about (a) self-executing mechanisms that may be built into a promissory note (and how to find them), (b) what to do if there are no such pre-built mechanisms, and (c) what to do if the mechanisms pre-negotiated with the investor are not optimal for your company's current situation. For a detailed write-up of convertible promissory notes, please reference my blog post: https://goo.gl/HihU27 Inna Efimchik, a Partner in the Emerging Companies group at White Summers Caffee & James LLP, specializes in assisting emerging technology companies in Silicon Valley and beyond, providing incorporation, financing, and licensing services as well as general corporate counseling.
