Down Round

  • 5 min read

What Is a Down Round?

A "down round" is a round of financing where investors pay less for the company's stock than the previous investors. If it happens to your company, it doesn't mean the end times are coming, but it is a major wake-up call and a sign that something needs to change.

The companies that can go through down rounds are startups and other private businesses that don't trade stocks on a public exchange. With no public trading, they sell stock in rounds to private investors. Since a stock exchange can't set the company's value, the company and the investors have to work out their value instead. And when this sets the company's value to lower than it was before, it creates a down round.

Why Is a Down Round Important?

In an ideal world, every round brings in more money, since the business is always growing and

Form S-1: What Is It?

Form S-1 is the initial registration form for companies that plan to take their company public. It's used to register their securities with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This form is required for all securities that meet the criteria set out by the SEC before the company can list shares on the national exchange.

When business owners take a company public, they must register any securities associated with that company in order to be added to the stock exchange. Securities, or financial instruments, provide people with a form of ownership over a company. These include such things as options, bonds, notes, debentures, and warrants.

Form S-1 is what companies use to register these financial instruments with SEC. If things change after filing and S-1 form or changes are needed in response to comments back from the SEC, an amendment to the form can be
