Working Capital, Long Term Financing, and Equity

A major component in operating a small business is securing affordable "working capital," long term financing, and equity. The source you select to finance your business, bank, credit union, hard money lender, local non-profit, economic development office  or equity investor will need to believe in you and your business model.  You must find a way to present your concept which causes them to believe that your company will not be among the 80% of businesses which fail in their first 60-months of operations.   Your understanding of the "business life cycle of your industry and market" will need to be a part of your presentation.  It is also important to know that your bank is financially sound, and can support you as your company grows.  Bank failures are a fact of life with over 5,000 banks closing in the last 36 months.    It is just prudent to not only know your business; but, know more about the people who want to help you realize your dream of a successful business.  Our  95% funding success rate on more-than 500 projects since 1989, means we know what it takes to create a high quality package.  

Funding Sources

The funding sources (banks, lenders, and investors) all focus on four areas when they consider you for a loan and/or as an equity partner, which includes:

  1. Does the owner have the experience to run a successful company?

  2. Does the business plan demonstrate a clear understanding of the market, industry, and competition?

  3. Does the company have acceptable collateral? and

  4. What is the "exit strategy" if the business fails?

To a great degree your ability to secure funding will depend upon the written presentation (business plan, financial, and/or loan package) you provide to a funding source.  Each loan  or investor package should be configured to address the concerns of the funding source.  For example, the business plan you present to an investor would not the the same presentation you provided to a local economic development agency.  A hard-money lender would have little interest in your business plan.  In fact, if you borrow money from a hard-money lender your other funding sources might consider such a loan as a "red flag."   As your company grows and diversifies the kind of funding sources will change.   While you may really only need a "working capital loan" today, you should plan for the day you will want an equity injection or long-term financing. 

Private Placements

In order to secure capital from private investors, or non-family members, the Securities and Exchange Commission requires the firm issuing the security to prepare a Regulation D Private Placement Memorandum (PPM). The PPM is required in order to raise capital from individual and institutional investors. The PPM legal document requires a high level of skill and experience and our people are experts in the drafting of this important legal document; which generates funding via the issuing of private shares of stock or security interest.

Private shares cannot be sold as easily. Because private shares represent a stake in a company that is not listed on any exchange, finding a buyer may be difficult. The lack of information about most private companies tends to dissuade investors, who are usually very reluctant to buy into a company that they know nothing about. Hence, the written document (PPM) you provide to each potential investor must comply with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation D Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) requirements.

Simply printing “stock certificates” and accepting money from investors without complying with Regulation D is “securities fraud!” Yes, that's the same Federal law which put Bernard Madoff in Federal Prison for life. Bottom line, if you accept the public's money for securities you must comply with the SEC's Regulation D.
