Private investments in public equity (PIPEs) offer a practical financing alternative for companies seeking capital and a unique asset for investors. For practitioners who know how to identify and execute transactions, PIPEs present a growing opportunity.
This revised and updated guide presents the views, voices, and invaluable expertise of leading practitioners from all specialties in the field. The book is divided into three parts: "The Business of PIPEs," which provides a historical backdrop and overview; "Regulatory Landscape and Structural Alternatives," which details the legal framework and transaction structures; and "Deal Flow," which offers the investor's perspective on negotiating deals.
With detailed discussions, ranging from the origins of the marketplace and deal structures to legal considerations and due diligence, and from finding new opportunities to trading strategies, this book provides a clear window to the inner workings of this active area of the small-cap market. Investors, financial analysts, investment bankers, corporate and securities attorneys, and executives of public companies will find substantial value in the pages of this book.
