Capitalization, Investment & Ownership Interests
Business Capitalization & Investment
Small- and medium-sized businesses often require additional capital to operate, expand or invest in new technologies. Such capital can come from a variety of sources including short-to-medium term financing and the selling of shares or ownership interest (i.e. equity) in the business entity.
Many small- to medium-sized businesses’ investment offerings are exempt from the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Regulations. To be eligible for exempt status, and maintain compliance there are still several filings and disclosures required at both the federal and state level. The Business Law Lawyers at The Jacobs Law LLC have experience with, and can assist in, reviewing financing-related documents (loan agreements, promissory notes, and lease agreements) as well as draft, complete and file the documentation necessary to comply with various Securities Regulations. Recent federal legislation has also made “Crowd Funding” an easier financing option that The Jacobs Law LLC can help your business take advantage of.
If you have the next ‘big idea’ and need financing to commercialize it, require additional capital to build and expand your successful business, or have specific individuals already interested in investing in your business, contact the Business Law Lawyers at The Jacobs Law, LLC for assistance today.
Managing, Buying & Selling Business Ownership Interests
Establishing and managing Business Ownership Interests are key tasks to a successful business. And it is the Business Ownership Interest that is the central concern of every business sale or purchase. It is also particularly important to potential investors and the exchange of Business Ownership Interest for investment funds.
