types of investments
Equity represents an ownership interest in the business. There are different types of equity securities that can be issued, including voting rights, first right of refusal, or clawback rights. By offering equity, businesses can gain loyal customers, as well as investors who are interested in the long-term success of the company.
Risks: Common stock is last in line to be paid if a company fails. Your investment will only make money if the company’s business succeeds. Common Stock is a long-term investment. Preferred stock can have the characteristics of either common stock or debt securities. While preferred stock gets paid ahead of common stock, it will still only be repaid on liquidation if there is money left over after the company’s debts are paid.
A debt security is similar to a conventional loan. This type of security can be bought and sold between two parties and the basic terms such as amount borrowed, interest rate and loan repayment date are determined up front. Companies that choose this type of security to issue, typically like to retain control of their company, and are comfortable making the debt payments for the duration of the security.
Risks: Debt securities are essentially loans to the company and the major risk they bear is that the company does not repay them, in which case they are likely to become worthless.
A convertible note starts off as debt, where the loan accrues interest that can be paid at the end of the term or it can be converted into equity at a predetermined discount rate. In the event that the note is “converted,” the amount of equity you receive will depend on the specific terms of the note. With the availability of a conversion option, convertible notes offer greater flexibility for the company.
Risks: The sort of convertible note that is most often offered on TycoonInvest may limit the circumstances in which any part of the loan is repaid, and the note may only convert when specified events (such as a preferred stock offering of a specific amount) happen in the future. You will not know how much your investment is “worth” until that time, which may never happen. You should treat this sort of convertible note as having the same risks as common stock.
Revenue shares are similar to debt securities, with a few caveats. Businesses pay back a percent of net revenue each quarter until the loan is paid in full. When the business is doing well, investors may receive larger payments, and when the business has slowed down, payments can be lower. Revenue share securities allow businesses to retain full control of their company, and are typically preferred by cyclical companies, such as those that generate most of their revenue during a certain period of time in the year.
Risks: Revenue share risks are similar to that of debt securities, in that they are essentially loans to the company and the major risk they bear is that the company does not repay them, in which case they are likely to become worthless.
