Latest Levensohn Venture Partners News

Las preferencias de liquidación punitiva vuelven a VC – no lo hagas

Apr 15, 2020

Contribuyente Pascal Levensohn es un capitalista de riesgo con sede en San Francisco con más de 22 años de experiencia en capital de riesgo a través de Levensohn Venture Partners y Dolby Family Ventures. Es ex director de la National Venture Capital Association. Más publicaciones de este colaborador Por qué las notas SAFE no son seguras para los emprendedores Tan silenciosa y rápidamente como ha devastado a las familias y comunidades de todo el mundo, COVID-19 también ha dejado a muchas nuevas empresas sin aliento. Las compañías emergentes con fuertes pronósticos de ingresos para 2020 han visto sus planes de alta confianza reducidos en un 60% -80% en cuestión de días. Incluso en el mejor de los casos, las nuevas empresas deben alcanzar hitos de desbloqueo de valor para recaudar capital con éxito. Pero hoy, una interrupción sincronizada globalmente de la actividad empresarial ha convertido en puntos de referencia normales irrelevantes para las rondas de financiación. Obtener el apoyo de nómina de los programas gubernamentales especiales recientemente promulgados para pequeñas empresas no resolverá los problemas en cascada con los que se enfrentan las nuevas empresas, independientemente de si están respaldados o no por VC. Las hojas de ruta para el desarrollo de productos en muchas industrias impulsadas por la innovación están cambiando de maneras que pueden alterar permanentemente la dirección estratégica futura de una empresa. Las discusiones sobre fusiones y adquisiciones están siendo archivadas. Las rondas de financiación normales, en proceso y contempladas, se están contrayendo o abandonando por completo. Muchos fondos de riesgo, incluidos los programas de riesgo corporativo, han “tomado una pausa” unilateralmente para reevaluar el panorama radicalmente cambiante para sus carteras de empresas en etapa inicial. La última vez que experimenté este fenómeno fue después de la Gran burbuja tecnológica: 2002-2003. Y todas las señales muestran que estamos al comienzo de una nueva ronda de “incentivos” punitivos para que los inversores de riesgo mantengan vivas a sus empresas. Varias de las compañías de mi cartera actual han propuesto recientemente financiamientos de bonos convertibles de “puente de emergencia” de entre $ 5 millones y $ 15 millones, cada uno con una característica dolorosa para los no participantes: múltiples preferencias de liquidación que benefician solo el nuevo dinero por encima de 3x, con descuentos superiores a 20 % sobre conversión en una nueva financiación de capital. Por supuesto, estas financiaciones están abiertas tanto para los inversores existentes como para los nuevos. Pero la probabilidad de otra ronda se ve realmente disminuida por este tipo de estructura.
