Raising capital is a complex process that has long-term consequences for a business and its owners. Whether you are raising capital through commercial debt or through a sale of equity or instruments, it is essential for management and its equity holders to understand the terms. You need counsel that is well versed in the wide variety of financial transactions available to generate working capital.
Financial and strategic investments involve investors or companies making investments in business enterprises, which is not a full acquisition, and may not include acquiring a majority stake. Financial investors are primarily interested in a return on investment (ROI). Strategic investors are companies that invest in vertically integrated companies, such as vendors, suppliers, distributors, customers or competitors. While strategic investors care about ROI, they typically are driven by the strategic synergies of their investment, such as securing their supply or distribution chain, or taking a minority state in a smaller company as a prelude to a full acquisition.
