Investment Appraisal and Recommendations on Deal Structuring for a Venture Fund
Our team was retained by the largest Russian venture fund of funds to appraise several investment opportunities being considered by fund investment committees. Based on the results of our work, we issued expert opinion reports and a set of recommendations on the commercial terms of potential investment transactions. Our work involved analysis of industry and market research, interviews with industry experts, value analysis.
Introducing Investor Safeguards
In a number of instances we have been engaged by shareholders and the boards of directors of venture startups to establish and control the finance and treasury function for investment holdings and operating entities. We also handled relationships with corporate administrators and legal advisors. In the case of larger companies, we appointed our candidates to CFO/FM positions.
In the case of smaller companies we acted as corporate CFO. We ensured that relevant escrow mechanisms were set up and successfully enforced in a situation when the transfer of essential IP rights was set as a condition for our investment.
