What Is an Acceleration Clause?

An acceleration clause (also called an acceleration covenant) is a provision, often written into loan agreements and promissory notes, that gives the lender, under certain circumstances, the right to require the borrower to pay off the entire loan amount immediately. Acceleration clauses are most commonly found in mortgage contracts and real estate loans. In the case of a mortgage, the acceleration clause is often triggered when the borrower (mortgagor) fails repeatedly make his payments on time.

Recapitalization

What Is Recapitalization?

Recapitalization (recap) takes place when a company undergoes a restructuring of its financials. When this occurs, debt and equity are re-assessed and re-allotted. The goal, usually, is to improve the company's overall stability or status. It generally occurs with the exchange of one type of financing for another. For example, shares may be exchanged for bonds, and so on.

Recapitalization is the way to organize a corporation's capital structure, including stock ownership and the rights and liabilities connected to each class or genre of stock. For shareholders of a business held together, this type of recapitalization is a nuanced, progressive strategy. In this sense, when undergoing recapitalization, a business is literally reorganizing — rights are being reorganized as they relate to stocks.

Why Consider Recapitalization?

Some reasons for recapitalization include the following:

Pre-Money Valuation: What Is It?

Pre-money valuation (PMV) is the initial value of a company before any type of investment. The capital a business receives after its pre-money valuation is called post-money valuation.

Why Is Pre-Money Evaluation Important?

  • PMV determines the value of company shares.
  • Through PMV, an investor can determine the value of a company's shares.
  • Through PMV, anyone can calculate the total value of a company.
  • Using PMV, the parties involved with an investment can determine how much of the company each party controls after the investment.

How Pre-Money Evaluation Works

Think of PMV as a simple calculation that investors use to weigh the value of becoming a shareholder. A company with a PMV of $10 million that has 1 million shares has value of $10 per share. When an angel investor offers to add $5 million more, the company's worth increases 50 percen

Par Value

Par Value: What is it?

If you trade securities, you've come across the term par value.

Par value usually refers to the value of a bond when it's issued. Say a bond is issued at $90, then trades to $100. The par value is still $90, even though the bond's value on the market increased. Par value can also show the value of a stock at the moment the company created its founding document, the company charter.

Par can also refer to two currencies that have the same value. For example, if the Euro was equal to one dollar, the Euro would be "at par" with the dollar. While this is an acceptable meaning of par, the phrase "par value" is used in relation to securities and not currencies.

Why is Par Value Important?

Bonds change price daily. The p
