Key Capital Raising considerations to keep in mind

Raising capital is a significant decision that requires careful consideration. No two capital raising paths are the same, and it’s important not to compare your journey with others.

It’s worth noting that 40% of capital raisings fail. To increase your chances of success, you must be Investor Ready and gain a solid understanding of the investor landscape, funding dead-ends, and the lengthy due diligence process required before investment occurs.

To maximize your chances of success, you’ll need a Professional Advisory Panel consisting of experts who can advise you on various aspects of capital raising, including legal and tax implications, dividends, and return on capital investment.

Your panel should also assess your company’s financial health and forecasts, determine the most likely exit strategy for your investors, evaluate valuation and price share, review your capital structure and current shareholdings, and examine existing staff agreements and management options.

A well-thought-out investment proposition and a team of professionals to guide you can help you confidently embark on your capital raising journey and increase your chances of success.

    Raising Capital in Australia

    To meet Australia’s strict regulatory requirements, the onus is on the company to be Investor Ready and compliant before starting the process.

    Raising capital is an arduous and stressful process that must meet ASIC’s guidelines when attracting private or public investment.

    Capital raising is governed by the Corporations Act 2001 (the Act) and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). The Act provides exemptions from producing IPOs under s708. The investor is responsible for ensuring they meet the requirements for exemption under s708 of the Act.

    The Company’s documentation provided to investors, can carry legal obligations. It is crucial that all information provided (including financial statements) is an accurate reflection of the businesses and estimated growth.

    Investor readiness is vital to a successful capital raise. When asking for investment, you must demonstrate your value  proposition with materials, documents and evidence of execution.

    Most, importantly, investors want proof of a ‘compelling investment opportunity’, and must be convinced that their investment funds will enable a successful exit event.  A successful capital raising starts and ends with how the company is going to make investors money.

    Work with a professional Corporate Advisory firm that will help prepare your business for investment. More about the Accrutus Capital Investment Services program.
