OVERALL CAP-TABLE MANAGEMENT

„The right cap-table is the key to any expansion, fundraising or future exit at right value.”

As business development is important for companies, cap-table planning and management should be likewise an important task. Most companies in Hungary are not aware of this and see their ownership structure as a static. They do not know and see what enterprise value increasing solutions are kept away from themselves this way.

In today’s world, when labor shortage is a more and more depressing problem, rising wages pose new challenges to companies day after day. As a result, employee stock ownership plans are expected to spread and the number of stakeholders will also increase rapidly. It is no longer enough to think about company development on the business development level but emphasis should be placed on the design and management of cap-table as well.

WHY IS CAP-TABLE PLANNING SO ESSENTIAL?

  • Company valuation is based upon cap-table. If you intend to raise capital from investors, you need to have a (c)lean cap-table, otherwise red light will flash in investors’ eyes.
  • While your startup or scale-up is growing, you won’t be able to avoid using ESOP to keep the key performance human resource and give extra motivation to them. Embedded in your cap-table plan, ESOP will be really valuable for affected employees only if it is accompanied by liquidity. That's why you need the right strategy for introducing ESOP, including FMV (Fair Market Value) structuring and secondary offering management.
  • Founders’ shares play also key roles in attracting investors and making fair deals with them - vesting schemes become more-and-more crucial.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Being a CEO is a lonely job. There is nobody you can share your problems and struggles with. When you decide to raise money and find the right investors this loneliness is even more harsh.

    When I first met One Minute and decided to start working together, I didn’t get a consultant, but a friend who helped me to carry the struggles of a CEO. Before meeting them, my plan was to raise one round as fast as possible and as much as I can. But they helped me to build up a complete strategy on our fundraising with multiple rounds, and helped to execute this strategy. This strategy based fundraising process saved us more than a million USD in the first year alone.

    Working with the team was easy. We had scheduled weekly meetings and they scheduled pre-screened investor meetings. My job was finally focused on talking to investors about my company and our vision. Not to chase down the investors, find out if we are a good match, find out the structure, think about the nitty-gitty details of a possible deal etc.

    Without this cooperation, our story would be much more different and probably far less successful.
