Synopsis of the Masterclass

Raising capital is one of the most important decision firms have to make. The undertaking of a good identified investment project often depends on the ability of the firm to raise funding. Firms use a variety of financing private and public sources. Such decision poses some critical questions, including pricing, and method of issue for managers, the existing owners/shareholders and for the financial institutions involved. In this session, we will develop a set of these issues. In particular, we will develop the following concepts:

  • Characteristics of financing methods (debt, equity and hybrid securities)
  • Raising capital from private sources: Venture capitalist funding
  • Initial public offerings - IPOs
  • Seasoned equity offerings - SEOs
  • Raising private and public debt
