9 Good reasons to raise PE
Pre-requisites Unique product or concept Forward looking management Large potential market opportunity Excellent development capability Implications…. Intense competition likely Need to move rapidly PE funding supports Hiring Rapid product development Alliances Infrastructure Internationalisation Commercialisation

10 Thoughts before considering Private Equity
Are you willing to sell some of your company’s shares to a private equity investor? Does your company have high growth prospects and are you and your team ambitious to grow your company rapidly? Does your company have a product or service with a competitive edge or unique selling point (USP)? Is it globally competitive? Do you and/or your management team have relevant industry sector experience? Do you have a clear team leader and a team with complementary areas of expertise, such as management, marketing and finance? If your answers are “yes”, private equity is worth considering

11 Private Equity – Typical deal terms
Target 20-40% ownership Board Representation Liquidation Preference Participation Rights Certain control and veto rights Tag and Drag Period of exclusivity to close the transaction

12 Bankers methodology and timelines
Phase 1 Business review, Profile of desired investor/ strategic partner Phase 2 Preparation of information on Company Phase 3 Contact investors/ strategic partner, evaluate proposals Phase 4 Negotiation with shortlisted investors/ strategic partner Phase 5 Due diligence, shareholder agreements Phase 6 Transaction closure, Investment Review of business Review relevant operational, financial and regulatory issues Address relevant issues Conclude on preferred structure Obtain required information Prepare discussion draft of IM Review with the Company Finalise IM Contact investors Send profiles, elicit investor interest Arrange and coordinate meetings Make presentations to interested investors Negotiate with shortlisted investors Finalise key terms of investment Finalise and execute term sheet Advise company on commercial issues that may arise during due diligence Work with company’s lawyers to advise company on commercial issues pertaining to shareholders agreement Work with company till receipt of investment 2-4 weeks 6-8 weeks 1-4 weeks

13 The business plan An essential document to identify its critical success factors Emphasis on why you are convinced that the business will be successful and convey what is so unique about it Key elements of the plan: The market for product or service The management team Business operations Financial projections Amount and use of finance required and exit opportunities It should show potential investors that, you and your team will give them a unique opportunity to participate in making an excellent return

14 How do private equity firms evaluate a business plan?
Is the product or service commercially viable? Does the company have potential for sustained growth? Does management have the ability to exploit this potential and control the company through the growth phases? Does the possible reward justify the risk? Does the potential financial return on the investment meet their investment criteria?

15 Where do Private Equity investors see green?
Investors look at “Entrepreneurial businesses”, investors look at companies with high growth prospects, which are managed by experienced and ambitious teams who are capable of turning their business plan into reality Many small companies are “life-style” businesses whose main purpose is to provide a good standard of living and job satisfaction for their owners and are not suitable for private equity investments As a rule of thumb, unless a business can offer the prospect of significant turnover growth within three years, it is unlikely to be of interest to a private equity investor

16 What a good PE will add Advisory board CEO/CFO/COO Country managers
Advice and strategy Hiring Advisory board CEO/CFO/COO Country managers Sales Partnerships Profile and PR Work in conjunction with other providers of finance Internationalisation, a catalyst for alliances Trusted service provider relationships Search/recruiting Branding/PR Finance, etc Exit optimisation Knowledge/contacts with relevant buyers Experience with process Access to a higher earnings multiple during an IPO Private equity backed companies have been shown to grow faster than other types of companies

17 What you can do to attract Private Equity?
Before looking at new external sources of finance, make sure you are making optimal use of your internal financial resources Focus predominantly on the business not fund raising Evidence of executional ability is more exciting to a PE than a 100 page business plan Transparency in discussions and openness of relationship Reasonable valuation expectation Provide risk management tools Ensure high standards of corporate governance Acknowledge the value addition and commitment from the investor Within a few years your “slice of the cake” should be worth considerably more than the whole “cake” was to you before

18 Right partner at a fair price Any partner at best price
Key things to consider Relationship With key individual (s); and Broader team References Speak to other founders Portfolio Relevant experience Non competitive Community you want to be a part of Valuation and associated deal terms Right partner at a fair price Vs Any partner at best price

19 Summary Committed capital to fill the demand gap left by traditional financial institutions Emergence of a mature Indian Private Equity market Return expectations - that out of 10 investments, 2 may fail completely,5 may give average returns and 3 may give superlative returns Investor needs reasonable size of operation, mutual comfort, execution capability and ethical conduct Paucity of doable deals and transactions may take more than three months to close Increase a company’s value to its owners, without managerial interference Entrepreneur is assisted with all the learning and resources which can be mustered by the fund to help him realise his dream Value creation recipe….. Growth capital for ambitious entrepreneurs
