What's The Better Deal:
On Making Successful
In 2005, your private NON-US company grosses $1 million. Your Fairy Godmother will give your company $10 million. You won't have to repay the money. You'll keep 100% equity in your company.
Your alternative is to have our associate take your NON-US company public. They'll raise money for your company and train you in the corporate game of controlling your stock. The process will cost you a small percentage of your company's shares. Your insiders will retain the majority of your company's stock and complete operating control.
In either case, you'll use the money wisely to build your company along the lines he will teach you. In five years, you'll want to sell your company. At the time of your company's sale, your company's profit is $3 million/year.
Which offer should you have taken five years earlier to get the best price for your company?
The Fairy Godmother offer leaves you with 100% ownership of your private company. Your private company should sell for 1.5 times its annual profit. Your golden parachute is worth $4.5 million.
Our associate's programme assumes a public company merger in five years. Your stock should trade over $20/share. Your insider shares will be worth over $100 million.
Which was the better deal?
The moral of this story is: take your operating company public. The money you'll raise from your private equity financing isn't nearly as much as the money you'll earn from the sale of your stock at the time of sale or merger.
