  • 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. ...

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.

A hybrid or a bridge between debt and equity is a convertible note. On the surface it works as an incredible loan that beats the odds of debt funding because it does not comply with the requisite of certainty. Who are the crazy lenders of convertible debt? Investors. 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.

Today's video includes: * Definitions of SAFE Agreements and Convertible Notes. * Pros and Cons of SAFE Agreements and Convertible Notes. * The importance of timing and understanding when one's agreement will convert into real equity. * The importance of the discount factor, and getting rewarded for getting in early (during the friends and family round). * How valuation caps work and why they matter. * Why it's key to avoid SAFE Agreements and Convertible Notes that have a buy out clause. * The importance of performing extensive due diligence and looking at all numbers. (I avoid deals where I don't have access to numbers.) * What it means to be an accredited investor, and how angel investments are typically restricted to accredited investors. That being said, even if one cannot invest, it's never too early to start building one's network. As a closing thought, I love angel investing because it allows me to invest in my friends. It allows me to invest in dreams. That being said, I think some people get into angel investing for the wrong reasons.

This video provides a basic introduction to the terminology and structure of these often misunderstood securities. The presentation describes how reverse convertibles belong in the category of structured notes (debt instruments whose returns are a function of an embedded derivative) known as enhanced yield structured notes. The source of the high coupon rate and the type of embedded option (knock-in put) that results in the complexity of the securities are discussed. The similarities and differences with regular convertible bonds are also covered. InsidersGuideToFinance.com facebook.com/insidersguidetofinance
