MergeComp® is a software tool for computing and modeling the waterfall distributions from a merger (or post-financing) back to security holders of a private VC-backed target company, where the capitalization structure may be complex, multi-layered, and difficult to compute with spreadsheet models.
MergeComp is a perfect tool for performing “what if” analyses, and determining the effects of different types of investment strategies.
MergeComp costs only $300 for each analysis — but you may run up to two additional analyses for the same company (within 3 days of the first analysis) at NO extra charge (a “3–in–3” benefit — perfect for modeling or “what if” exploring).
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
You send us your Summary Capitalization Data including:
liquidation preferences, participation, options, warrants, management bonus plan carve-outs, convertible notes, etc.
We send you the Waterfall Analysis Spreadsheet showing:
EACH point of sale value at which the distribution changes (due to caps, conversions, exercises, etc. – the “Transition Points”)
The distribution to each of the securities classes at each of the Transition Points
A cell where you can enter ANY SALES VALUE, and see the distributions to all security classes at that sales value
Charts and graphs of the distributions to all security classes
