Thoroughly review your company for investors
At G8-plus, we will make sure that we thoroughly review your operations and financial results to make sure that your company is ready for professional investors and strategic partners. In order for our staff to effectively go over every detail, it is best for us to know everything about your company from the very start so we can ensure you are fully prepared to start working with investors. That way G8-plus will be able to help you improve your position.
Prepare documents to help inform investors
At G8-plus, we work with a document called a “deal book” which is a quick and efficient way for investors to review operational results as well as any other corporate document relevant to help your business appeal to investors. This deal book is usually made up from business plans and a Private Placement Memorandum (PPM). For G8-plus to help close a deal as quickly as possible, it is helpful to explain the strategy, marketing and allocation of the money you need. This will allow us to create the best deal book for your company and achieve the best results.
Discuss your goals and targets in depth
We at G8-plus will thoroughly discuss your goals and targets, such as what kind of investors, strategic partners and stock brokers will be of most help to your business. In order to achieve success, we set realistic goals and discuss how your company can achieve these. Whether it is approaching local targets or global venture capitalists or whether there are companies that can provide your business with a loan, we will ensure you consider your options carefully.
At G8-plus we also estimate key investment metrics to help you appeal to investors. We are always honest with our clients, keeping in mind what is best for your business and in order to help you understand the investor’s point of view.
Reach out to investors
When we have enough information about your business, G8-plus will start reaching out to investors, stock brokers or strategic partners. We have worked hard to set up good relationships and a large network to help introduce your business to the right people. Knowing that most investors take several weeks to respond to your inquiries, we will work earnestly to keep selling your opportunities to these investors until a deal can be made.
With this in mind, you and your business will have to be prepared for face-to-face meetings with investors. Since they are taking a chance on your business, you’ll want to represent yourself and your company in the most professional way possible. Investors are not only getting to know you and your business – you are also getting to know them, so you will want to be fully prepared for face-to-face meetings.
Help you in closing the deal
While we will strive to help you along every step of closing a deal with investors, there may be a point where we at G8-plus are unable to help you. Closing the deal is a serious undertaking and G8-plus might not fully possess all the skills required. Usually, a specialized attorney, a valuation expert and an accountant will be required when finalizing the deal. It is important that you “paper over the deal” in a careful and professional matter, as it may influence how it is viewed by the Tax Authorities, the Financial Authorities and other stakeholders.
