Very often, in order to grow, businesses need to arrange financing from banks or outside investors. This financing can take many forms, including equity investments, debt financing, and convertible debt, among others.
Equity investments involve the selling of shares or other membership interests to others who then become co-owners. In addition to state and federal regulations that might be involved, business clients also need to be aware of the effect that such investments can have on their control of the business, both in the day-to-day operation, and in future long-range planning.
Debt financing is more straightforward, and involves borrowing money in exchange for a promise to repay, evidenced by a Promissory Note. Important considerations for business clients seeking this type of financing can include the specific repayment terms of the Note, the collateral securing the Note, and the details of any personal or corporate guarantees that the lender is seeking.
Lastly, convertible debt financing is a blend of debt and equity financing, typically involving debt financing converted into equity in the business upon the occurrence of certain triggers, such as subsequent investment financing.
