    Every morning in any business newspaper , you read good news thatcompany had raised million dollars from the Private Equity funds ,valuation of enterprise in multiple of their investments and PE investorsexists with multi fold return.

    Some sad story you read - too no return on investment , unable to existand most important is legal issue may be related to the governance,disclosure and ownership of the enterprise and so on... Promoter thinkequity capital is free (what they believe) and for the investor is risk capital.While execution of the Shareholding Agreement (covenants & terms )PEfirms take almost care on drafting the agreements.

    Some thing to share ........

    Steps / Process

    Private & Confidential Report is only for the information purpose

    Provoke equity investors interest: There are hundreds of small firms interested in raising finance from private equity investors, and relatively few venture capitalists and private equity investors. Given this imbalance, the first step that a private firm wanting to raise private equity has to take is to get private equity investors interested in investing in it.

    Valuation and Return Assessment: Once private equity investors become interested in investing in a firm, the value of the private firm has to be assessed by looking at both its current and expected prospects. Discounted cash flow models to value firms and various other methods

    Structuring the Deal: In structuring the deal to bring private equity into the firm, the private equity investor and the firm have to negotiate two factors. Return on capital and dilution of equity stake

    Post-deal Management: Once the private equity investment has been made in a firm, the private equity investor will often take an active role in the management of the firm.

    Exit: There are three ways -The first and usually the most lucrative alternative is an initial public offering made by the private firm. The second is to sell the private business to another firm and the third alternative is to sale the equity to the promoter

  • Let us come to reality :How long is the start-up bubble in India going to last?

    At the rate it's going, is it going to burst?


    high valuations,

    too much money- heavy inflow of cheap money from developed nations, will result in the excessive cash-burn.

    performance and return on investment is missing

    too many start-ups doing the same thing,

    weak business models

    Team and professional are missing

    Here's a possible end game scenario:

    2015 :

    Industry saturation & consolidation underway

    With changes in the Indian laws today and future , regulatory will play keys for success and failure

    Let us see the service tax regime is increased by .50 paisa , this my have adverse effects on the financials

    2016 :

    Buy Outs

    Financing structuring deal debt +equity and structure instruments

    2017 :

    Smaller players will eventually run out of cash and shut operations

    Performing companies will get the next round of funding

    May be stage come out with lot of litigations - between the promoters and the PE funds - non disclosure , governance

    and so on......

    An infrequent business exercise.

    Often a first time undertaking.

    Objectives are frequently unclear.

    Lack of skills, knowledge, preparation.

    The distraction of running a business.

    Initiated by panic.

    Failure to recognize the obvious: cash runs the business.

    Not knowing your audience: investors.

  • Dangers of Proceeding Unprepared
