Corporate structuring and strategy is more important than ever given today's economic climate and shifting consumer habits. Companies today face various challenges to achieve and maintain profitability, gain market share, adapt to technological changes and stay ahead of their competitors.
Raising capital can be structured as debt or equity. If equity is being raised there are numerous securities laws that business owners need to be aware of and consider when structuring such a transaction. Debt financing is much easier to structure and if there are assets in the company the loan can be secured with those assets.
It is important to give careful and serious consideration to the structure of funding and financing transactions. Take into account the amount you intend to raise and what your use of proceeds will be. Also, think a few steps ahead, like in a chess game, to see what you may need to raise in subsequent rounds of financing. What will your likely use of proceeds be at that time? Be sure to obtain competent legal advice before undertaking to raise capital through Regulation A, Regulation D or any other offering of securities. There are numerous regulatory requirements such as state “blue sky laws” and other state and federal regulations that must be complied with when raising equity capital.
