It's time for a more powerful Exit Waterfall

By Sonit Agrawal Mar 23, 2020

How terms across share classes impact your exit proceeds.

With the new Exit Waterfall in Fundwave, visualize exit proceeds for your portfolio investments at a tap. As convertible notes convert to equity and incoming investors are issued new share classes with their own liquidation preferences and participation caps, the Fundwave exit waterfall simulates proceeds for each share class.

Breakpoint Analysis

The exit waterfall also identifies the distribution breakpoints that help you see the valuation markers at which your share of the proceeds start to change.

b. Distribution breakpoints for your portfolio company's captable

Whether you're an early-stage investor issuing convertible notes, or a late-stage investor sharing pari-passu seniority with early investors - model the exit waterfall to help understand the distribution mechanics. Use the model to identify your target valuation and negotiate accordingly with your future co-investors.
