Volatile capital markets and the rapidly changing financial landscape make it important for issuers to recognize changes quickly and adjust their financing strategies accordingly. For example, for an issuer that contemplated an IPO or is in the IPO queue, it is important to become familiar with other financing alternatives, such as venture debt or late-stage or mezzanine debt, as well as institutional equity private placements. Each of these markets is quite different. Familiarity with investor expectations and documentation requirements is essential in order to put your company in the best position to make crisp decisions. The same can be said for already public companies considering their next capital raise. During this session, the speakers will discuss:

  • Current market conditions;
  • Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
  • The market for venture debt;
  • The late-stage private placement market;
  • Options to consider on the way to an IPO; and
  • Financing alternatives for recently public companies.
