Most Favored Nation

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.

Convertible Notes: What Are They?

Convertible notes are loans from investors that convert into equity or stocks when the company reaches prenegotiated milestones. An MFN clause in a convertible note keeps another investor from getting more equity for a similar loan when the company is more successful.

Preferred Stock

  • 4 min read

Preferred stock is a special class of equity that adds debt features. As with common stock, shareholders receive a share of ownership in the company. Preferred stock also receives special rights, including guaranteed dividends that must be paid out before dividends to common shareholders, priority in the event of a liquidation, is listed separately from common stock, and trades at a different price than common stock.

Why Is Preferred Stock Important?

Preferred stock gives you a financing alternative to taking on debt. You generally maintain greater control over your company than if you issue new common shares.

You can also remain flexible for future financing rounds by keeping debt off of your balance sheet and retaining a call option. The call option allows you to reduce your outstanding equity and offer a greate

Basis Point

  • 2 min read

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
