Apohan Corporate Consultants Pvt. Ltd. > Events: Webinar Series on Equity Funding – July 2020
Equity Funding for Business Growth & Financial turnaround


On Wed 8th, Thur 9th & Fri 10th July 2020| 11.00 a.m. to 12.45 p.m.




Equity funding is a complete contrast to bank loans. It is available based on the merit and potential of the business and not on the current financial situation. It is available in as much quantity and for as much term as needed. There is no requirement of any security or guarantee. There is no guaranteed return like interest to be paid the investor. There is no need to pay the initial investment back.


Amazing! Right? But equity funding is uncommon even in deserving SMEs.


Who needs equity funding?


The first type is those that want to ride on the opportunities in the market and want to grow to the new levels of success. They need capital for the growth initiatives, capacity expansion & new projects. The second type is those who are suffering from poor return on investment, from capital shortage for modernization, from working capital shortfall for full capacity utilization, from payments defaults of creditors, from recovery actions by banks, lenders, etc., and to the disputes between shareholders or directors.


Both of these need equity capital for growth or turnaround.


What makes it difficult to access equity funding?


The origin of funding problems is not technical incompetence, operational Incompetence, or marketing incompetence.It is that the investors look for the companies which are systematically organized & professionally run. Equity investors need a lot of documentation to assess the authenticity and the potential of growth which SMEs fail to provide as the documentation is absent in first place or they cannot compile it. SMEs mistake poorly connected brokers for M&A consultants who can carry out complex scope of work. Brokers can’t generate documentation, communication, deal structure, valuation & a sensible offer.
