What is a Most Favored Nation Clause?

Most favored nation startups are new companies that have a most favored nation or MFN clause in agreements with investors. This clause keeps later investors from getting better terms than the first investors, and it's completely different from the clause that involves countries. Most favored nation clauses are terms in many convertible notes. Some clauses make sure all parties in a contract get equal terms. MFNs usually last until the next round of financing, also called an equity round, starts.

What is a Basis Point?

One of the terms you may hear when searching for a business loan is basis point. This is a fairly common term when lenders are talking about fees on your loan. They also may apply when a lender is locking in a specific interest rate. You may have also heard this term if you were borrowing money for a car, on your credit card statements or when you took out a student loan.

Simply put, a basis point is one one-hundredth of a percent. Written out it is .01 percent. An example of how a calculation is made is if you borrow $100 and you're paying 200 basis points, it will cost you 200 pennies or two dollars.

The formula looks like this: $100 x .02 = $2.00
