Debt Financing: What Is it?

Debt financing is when a company raises money by taking out a loan and then repays that loan over time with interest. This is also known as borrowing on credit. It can come from selling bonds, bills, or notes to lending institutions, or from private investors who are not looking to receive equity in your business.

It's good to be aware of the fact that banks often shy away from small businesses that are experiencing rapid sales growth, a temporary decline or a seasonal slump. They are not completely stable.

    What is an Earnout?

    An earnout is a provision in a purchase agreement. It can also be a separate agreement that's part of a group of transaction documents in a merger or acquisition.

    Statement of Work: What Is It?

    A statement of work (SOW) is a document that lists all the work a supplier will do during a project. It will define the amount of work, the expected quality of the job performance, and the timeframe for completion.

    A well-written SOW will help both parties understand the parameters of a successful project. A poorly worded SOW could lead to conflict. The parties may argue over unclear expectations and the definition of good work.

    To avoid such arguments, a well-written SOW should include:

    • A list of expected products and services
    • A list of tasks leading to the product's creation
    • Specifics regarding who will handle each of the listed tasks
    • Due dates
