13–7 Debt or Equity? Entrepreneurs typically prefer debt –Allows them to appropriate as much as of the benefit as possible + retain sole control –Can default Debt is unattractive to investors in emerging technology –Usually little collateral or predictable cash flow –Information asymmetry is lessened by ownership position – shared ownership gives some control –High interest rate to offset risk will stifle growth or cause default
13–8 Debt or Equity Financing? Potential Profitability Financial Risk Voting / Control
13–9 $28,000 income on total assets of $200,000 14% return on assets ($28,000÷ $200,000) 14% return on $200,000 ($28,000÷ $200,000) No debt equals $200,000 equity With no debt and all equity: Debt Versus Equity Equity: Owners get to keep all of the profits in return for accepting the risk of lower returns
13–10 $28,000 income on total assets of $200,000 14% return on assets ($28,000÷ $200,000) 18% return on $100,000 ($18,000÷ $100,000) $100,000 debt (10% cost) equals $100,000 equity With $100,000 debt and $100,000 equity: Debt Versus Equity (Cont’d) Debt is Risky: Lenders have first claim on profits and must be paid even if there are no profits.
13–12 The Banker’s Perspective Bankers’ Concerns! The Five C’s of Credit –Character of the borrower –Capacity of the borrower to repay the loan –Capital invested in the venture by the borrower –Conditions of the industry and economy –Collateral available to secure the loan
13–13 Questions Lenders Ask Lender’s Questions –What are the strengths and qualities of the management team? –How has the firm performed financially? –How much money is needed? –What is the venture going to do with the money? –When is the money needed? –When and how will the money be paid back? –Does the borrower have qualified support people, such as a good public accountant and attorney?

13–17 The myth… and the reality The myth: VCs support good people and good ideas The reality: VCs invest in industries with double digit growth in the middle of the S-curve –Appropriate management team –Specialty funds (earlier and later stages on the S- curve) –Limits the risk to management risk –Produces attractive exit opportunities
13–18 Present Day Situation Myth: There is less available capital Fact: The industry has plenty of money, but limited appetite for new investment Fact: Investor attitudes toward risk have changed
13–19 The venture capital industry Accounts for about 2/3 of private-sector external equity financing of high tech firms in U.S., but less than 1% of all equity in SMEs VC sensitive to capital gains tax, ability of institutional investors to contribute to high risk funds, and performance of the stock market (especially IPOs) Highly specialized by industry, location and stage
13–20 VC fills a void Gap between innovation and traditional sources of debt Risk inherent in startups typically justify interest rates higher than allowed by law VCs must balance high returns for their investors against sufficient upside potential for entrepreneurs to keep them motivated
13–21 What VCs get out of it 10X return on capital over 5 years VCs management fees and high growth funds Fund structured with limited and general partners and a life of 7-10 years
