Advanced Private Equity Term Sheets and Series A Documents
"If you have a desire to understand from top to bottom the terms of a private equity transaction and why each term/clause/section is negotiated in or out of a deal, then you should purchase this book. In short, it is an excellent desk companion for any private equity professional." -- Paul J. Marino, Visionaries: The Young Venture Capital Society Newsletter
Succeeding in the venture capital industry requires knowledge of the terrain and a keen understanding of the terms essential to a well-structured transaction. This encyclopedic guide is packed with state-of-the-art analysis, forms and commentary, all designed to help you master the most crucial stages of the venture financing process.
The Advanced Private Equity Term Sheets and Series A Documents book with a CD examines all of the deal terms you may encounter--anti-dilution protection, warrant coverage, liquidation preferences, and others. It provides clause-by-clause discussion of the Stock Purchase Agreement, along with time saving tools, such as model documents, opinion letters and a due diligence checklist contributed by a Big 4 accounting firm. You'll also get the most current data from an industry-wide survey of West Coast and East Coast deal terms and trends, so you'll know whether a given provision is "market" or "industry standard"--a must before your next negotiation. Whether you are dealing with claw back provisions or "next round financing", cram downs or the "overhang problem", this definitive book brings you the in-depth, nuanced answers you need to achieve your objectives.
