What are Representations and Warranties?

Representations and warranties in business contracts provide facts (representations) and security against loss (warranties) if the statements made are not true. Representations and warranties may also be shortened to "represents and warrants" in a contract.

If the representation in the contract is found to be false, it is called "inaccurate," while a false warranty is considered breached. Representations always refer to past information, as it is impossible for a company or individual to present future information as factual.

Every contract between two parties includes representations and warranties. For example, if you decide to go to an auto dealership to buy a car, you would enter this tran

Contributed Capital: What Is It?

Contributed capital or "paid in capital" is the money stockholders have invested in the corporation by purchasing stock directly from the company. The money these stockholders pay goes directly to the company. Investors can invest in a company through equity or debt. Debt is recorded as a liability and equity is recorded in a separate “contributed capital” section.

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 percent to $15 millio

Venture Debt

  • 10 min read

What Is Venture Debt?

Venture debt is a form of business loans. Companies often apply for venture debt to supplement money gained through investors. This could be because equity through investors is not enough to reach milestones or business owners want to avoid diluting company ownership.

Venture debt provides flexibility not found with investors and is ideal for businesses that are already equity-backed but need additional funding to complete a project. Ideal uses for venture debt include acquisitions, as a cushion leading up to expansion, or as interim funding used until money starts flowing from a new venture.

As a company is growing, it may run into some growing pains that could be eased by additional funding. Business owners can work with either banks or venture debt funds to secure venture debt funding.

Venture debt, also known as venture lending and venture leasing, can be split up into two categories: equipment financing and growth
