STAGES OF EQUITY FUNDING
Early Stage Equity Funding
Early-stage equity funding can be considered in the following way: equity funding is contributed very early, almost at idea inception and thereby considered “seed money”. Seed funding usually comes from the promoter and/or their family/contacts/friends as it is important to prove their idea/concept. Once “proven” and seen as ready to gain sales there is a need for additional early stage funding to allow for production/distribution/commercialization/etc. and commonly called the First Round of funding.
The need for early-stage equity funding is synonymous with the potential roadblocks of a start-up in which an idea is seen as viable and a demand is shown but the capital to reach that target market is lacking. The equity funding that can be furnished by merchant bankers such as Mr Herard will support the short-term business goals of gaining sales or reaching an approval milestone.
Growth Equity Funding
Following the above stage and sometimes even after the initial start-up, merchant banking groups would become actively pursued. This would be the Growth or “Ramp-up” stage, which is a position whereby the company needs “deep pockets”; corporate players such as Gilles Herard, merchant banker, who have access to these resources, though they will need to first perform an exhaustive Due Diligence to verify and validate all aspects of the company in order to fully protect the investors. In return, the investors would take an equity portion of the company in exchange for the risk being put forth.
The sourcing of equity alone can be one of the most difficult challenges of a business looking to expand its business or even to stay solvent. Added to that is the fact that many companies are either two small and/or function in country that is seen by the larger industrials country as still emerging.
Many firms in emerging markets that may be consistently profitable and growing in the mind of foreign investors are still too small as well as lack the marginal depth to be provided with the equity to expand globally. Hence private equity funds could be a solution.
Funds of private equity groups commonly raise their capital in liquid markets, like that of the United States, to thereby invest in mature firms in emerging markets. The main objective is not only to help those firms grow but also become modernize with new technology.
