Navigating “Down Round” Financings


After a decade of steadily rising valuations, the coronavirus pandemic has created downward valuation pressure on startup and emerging growth companies. Companies that need to raise capital in the current environment may find themselves able to do so only at substantially diminished valuations, often known as “down rounds.” This webinar will focus on issues particular to down round financings, including transaction structuring, impacts on founders and existing investors and employees, and director and officer fiduciary duty considerations.

Speakers: Ryan Valenza and Sam Vinson

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
