How Do Convertible Bonds work?
Investors loan funds to a fundraising company in return for the issue of Convertible Bonds, which under the terms of the relevant convertible bond agreement, shall grant investors the right to subsequently acquire equity/ ownership in the company at the milestone event, in lieu of receiving a return on investment in the form of repayment of their loan amount plus accrued interest from the company.
CapBridge aims to reduce transactional costs and time taken to complete deal negotiation by providing standardized Convertible Bond documentation for the fundraising company’s reference.
Advantages of Convertible Bonds/Notes
Reduced Borrowing Costs
Compared to unsecured loans, convertible bonds typically confer lower borrowing costs than regular loans as the bond includes rights to allow repayment of the loan with equity interests in some cases (instead of actual cash) and at lower interest rates.
Risk Adjusted Offering
The typical duration of convertible bonds for a company is approximately 1 to 3 years (to conversion /repayment). The company can set applicable discount rates, valuation caps, milestone events and conversion rights to manage the risk and reliability of its investor’s investment and founder’s dilution.
Better Investor Perception
Investors and companies are not forced to negotiate and determine a valuation for the company at the point of investment, which is typically a time-consuming, expensive and difficult process in a traditional equity fundraise setting.
Typically, investors would get initial investment plus any interest earned returned if investor does not convert prior to maturity. The interest can be equated to the dividend payout associated with certain stocks, but investors also get the benefit of price appreciation if that stock goes up in value.
Higher Yield Potential
Potential to earn a higher return with these bonds compared to traditional corporate bonds since a convertible bond includes the option to be converted into stock, a rise in the stock price also increases the value of the convertible.
