In many business and real estate transactions, investors are eager to get their money back first—and with preferential returns. Equity investments in this sense take on a form of a security interest—the equity is structured in a way that it is paid back before other equity investors or, in the event the transaction or entity fails, investors have a priority claim on liquidation proceeds.

In many business and real estate transactions, investors are eager to get their money back first—and with preferential returns. Equity investments in this sense take on a form of a security interest—the equity is structured in a way that it is paid back before other equity investors or, in the event the transaction or entity fails, investors have a priority claim on liquidation proceeds. Beyond the priority claim to the return of their capital and perhaps a preferential rate of return, equity and debt investors sometimes also require certain information, management rights, and/or control rights on the occurrence or nonoccurrence of certain triggers. There are many ways to achieve these preferential returns, from preferred stock or convertible debt to contractual rights, but they all come with drafting complexity and practical tradeoffs. This program provides you with a practical guide to drafting equity and debt instruments to achieve preferential returns in business and real estate transactions.

  • Drafting equity and debt instruments to achieve preferential returns in business and real estate transactions
  • Nonstock contractual arrangements—cash and “payment in kind” distributions
  • Drafting issues—lockboxes, benchmarks, “hurdles,” and more
  • Related information, management rights, and control rights—and triggering events
  • Drafting convertible debt instruments to achieve preferential returns
  • Drafting anti-dilution provisions in preferred returns
  • Preferred returns in C and S corporations vs. pass-through entities
