Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does the price per share change after investment in the company?

    Valuation increases as a consequence of funding. Valuation of a company represents the price of all shares in the company. The new price per share can be found using this valuation. Mathematically, dividing the post money valuation of the company by the total number of shares issued across all shareholders gives the new price per share.

  • Why are new shares issued to investors instead of transferring shares from founders?

    New shares have to be issued since the previous shareholders are not selling their stake in the company during an equity investment. To provide stake to the investor, stakes of the other shareholders get diluted while the number of shares owned by them remain the same. Hence new shares have to be issued to the investor.

  • Do ESOPs become a part of the pre and post money cap tables?

    Absolutely. ESOPs are considered as an independent shareholder in both the pre and post money cap tables. The stake contributed to ESOP is also liable to dilution on investment while the number of shares attributed to ESOPs remain the same.

  • What is the price per share before investment happens in the company?

    Before investments, the price per share is always equal to the face value of a share that is INR 10.

  • Is cap table included as part of any legal documents for the funding process.

    Yes. Cap tables are an integral part of the termsheet and SHA. They are an important element of all deal related documents.

  • Who are preferential shareholders?

    Preferential shareholders are those who are entitled to receive a part of company profits before any other common shareholder receives them. A preferential shareholder also has the right to have their capital repaid if the company fails.
