VC process

  • Perform valuation and return assessment (Venture capital method)

    • Estimate earnings in the year the company is expected to go public

    • Obtain a P/E multiple for public firms in the same industry

      Exit or Terminal Value = P/E multiple * forecasted earnings

    • Discount this terminal value at the VC’s target rate of return

      Discounted Terminal Value = Estimated exit value

      (1 + target return)n

Going public vs. staying private

  • The benefits of going public are:

    • Firms can access financial markets and tap into a much larger source of capital

    • Owners can cash in on their investments

  • The costs of going public are:

    • Loss of control

    • Information disclosure requirements

    • Exchange listing requirements

Initial public offering ipo process l.jpg
Initial Public Offering (IPO) process

  • Most public offerings are made with the assistance of investment bankers (IBs) which are financial intermediaries that specialize in selling new securities and advising firms with regard to major financial transactions.

Ipo process l.jpg
IPO process

  • The role of the investment banker

    • Origination - design of a security contract that is acceptable to the market;

      • prepare the state and federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registration statements and a summary prospectus,

    • Underwriting-the risk-bearing function in which the IB buys the securities at a given price and turns to the market to sell them.

      • Syndicates are formed to reduce the inventory risk.

    • Sales and distribution-selling quickly reduces inventory risk. Firm members of the syndicate and a wider selling group distribute the securities over a wide retail and institutional area.

Ipo process15 l.jpg
IPO process

  • IPO costs

    • Underwriting commission (usually around 7%)

    • Underpricing of issue

      • Represents the first day returns generated by the firm, calculated as

        Closing Price – Offer price

        Offer price

      • Issues are underpriced to

        • Provide investors with a “good taste” about the investment banker and firm

        • Compensate investors for the information asymmetry between firm and investor

Ipo process16 l.jpg
IPO process

  • Valuing the company and setting issue details

    • Investment banker and firm need to determine

      • Value of company

        • Valuation is typically done using P/E multiples

      • Size of the issue

      • Value per share

      • Offering price per share

        • This will tend to be below the value per share, i.e., the offer will be underpriced

Ipo process17 l.jpg
IPO process

  • Determining the offer price

    • The investment banker will gauge the level of interest from institutional investors for the issue by conducting road shows. This is referred to as building the book.

  • After the offer price and issue details are set, and the SEC has approved the registration, the firm places a tombstone advertisement in newspapers, that outlines the details of the issue and the investment bankers involved

Ipo process18 l.jpg
IPO process

  • Waiting period – The period between the submission of the registration to the SEC and the SEC’s approval. It is during this time that the company releases the red herring

  • Quiet period – a period after the registration is submitted until approximately a month after the issue where the company cannot comment on the earnings, prospects for the company

  • Lock-up period – a period of usually 6 months following the issue date in which the insiders of the company cannot sell their shares

Choices for a publicly traded firm l.jpg
Choices for a publicly traded firm

  • General subscription (or Seasoned Equity Offering)

  • Private placements

  • Rights offerings

General subscription seo l.jpg
General subscription (SEO)

  • Although for IPOs the underwriting agreement almost always involves a firm guarantee from the underwriter to purchase all of the issue, in secondary offerings, the underwriting agreement may be a best efforts guarantee where the underwriter sells as much of the issue as he can

  • SEOs tend to have lower underwriting commissions because of IB competition.

  • The issuing price of an SEO tends to be set slightly lower than the current market price

Private placement l.jpg
Private placement

  • Securities are sold directly to one or few investors

  • Saves on time and cost (no registration requirements, marketing needs)

  • Tends to be less common with corporate equity issues. Private placement is used more in corporate bond issues.

Rights offerings l.jpg
Rights offerings

  • Existing investors are provided the right to purchase additional shares in proportion to their current holdings at a price (subscription price) below current market price (rights-on price)

  • Each existing share is provided one right.

  • The number of rights required to purchase a share in the rights offering is then determined by the number of shares outstanding and the additional shares to be issued in the rights offering.

    rights required to purchase one share = # of original shares

    # of shares issued in RO

Rights offerings23 l.jpg
Rights offerings

  • Because investors can purchase shares at a lower price, the rights have value:

    Value of the right = rights-on price – subscription price

    n + 1

    where n = number of rights required for each new share

  • Because additional shares are issued at a price below market price, the market price will drop after the rights offering to the ex-rights price

    ex-rights price = New value of equity

    New number of shares

  • The value (or price) of the right can also be calculated as:

    rights-on price – ex-rights price

Rights offerings24 l.jpg
Rights offerings

  • Costs are lower because of

    • Lower underwriting commissions – rights offerings tend to be fully subscribed

    • Marketing and distribution costs are significantly lower

  • No dilution of ownership

  • No transfer of wealth
