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. For issuers that already have their securities listed on a non-U.S. securities exchange, which may offer limited liquidity, it may be time to consider undertaking a U.S. IPO in order to establish a more liquid market for their securities.  Already public companies considering their next capital raise also must be nimble--a PIPE transaction may be an attractive (and available) financing alternative. During this session, the speakers will discuss:

  • Current market conditions;
  • Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
  • The market for venture debt;
  • The late-stage (or “cross-over”) private placement market;
  • Options to consider on the way to an IPO;
  • The ReIPO™
  • Financing alternatives for recently public companies; and
  • PIPE transactions and other financing alternatives.
