You want someone who's going to be a financial partner as opposed to someone who's just looking for a trading play.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
According to the piece, titled "Terms of Endearment," PIPE deals have entered the mainstream due to a slow market for secondary offerings and increasingly difficult to obtain forms of traditional financing. It observes that PIPE's offer public companies swift and discreet distribution of securities, but cautions readers that the terms of deals must be closely scrutinized. This means meticulous research on the investment firm and each investor: looking into past deals, how stocks perform post-deals, and following up on references.
"The company has to know who they're getting into bed with," says Ribotsky in "Entrepreneur." "You want someone who's going to be a financial partner as opposed to someone who's just looking for a trading play."
