  4. 4. EMPLOYEE DILUTION BY STAGE If you use all non-preferred shares as a proxy for employee ownership percentage, you can see that employee ownership “decays” from 100% to around 32% by the time the company is at a Series D or higher stage.

  5. 5. EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP FORMULA For the mathematically inclined, employee ownership almost perfectly fits a logarithmic curve with each new round of funding. The “Employee Ownership Formula” is: Employee Ownership = -0.38 * ln ( Number of Rounds of Funding) + 1.

  6. 6. FOUNDER OWNERSHIP BY STAGE We can define “founder ownership” as all common and restricted common stock. Founder ownership decreases from 86% to 30% by the Series B stage. It could actually be a little lower in later stages as optionees convert options to common stock.

  7. 7. PRE-MONEY VALUATIONS BY STAGE The distribution of pre-money valuations has a long-tail skewing toward a few companies with really high valuations so median values are significantly lower than mean values. Pre-money valuations grow rapidly in a company’s later stages. $50,000,000 $100,000,000 $150,000,000 $0 Common Only Common + Convertibles Series Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ $174.4M $62.0M $40.7M $25.6M $10.5M $0.9M$1.1M $200,000,000 ME A N A ND ME D I A N P R E - MO NE Y VA LUA TI O N BY S TA G E Mean Post-Money Median Post-Money

  9. 9. POST-MONEY VALUATIONS BY STAGE Mean and median post-money valuations diverge increasingly at later stages. This would indicate that the values of a subset of very highly valued companies pulls the average up but most companies don’t achieve such high valuations.

  13. 13. USAGE OF EQUITY INSTRUMENTS BY STAGE Companies almost all use common, preferred, ISO, and NSO equity. Companies also use RSAs, though somewhat less frequently. RSUs, SARs, and SPRs appear much less frequently and typically in later-stage companies.

  14. 14. RESTRICTED STOCK AWARDS (RSA) On average, RSAs represent a large ownership stake across a small number of shareholders. This is because RSAs are frequently used by founders to vest each other. $8 $15 $23 $0 Common Only Common + Convertibles 2.4 3.3 $30 1.8 3.5 5.3 7.0 Series Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ 2.2 3.6 4.9 3.6 6.2 RSA Shareholders R E S T R I CT E D S TO C K A WA R D S ( R S A s) BY S TA G E 14% 27% 11% 11% 5% 5% 2% RSA Ownership %
  15. 15. WATERFALL ANALYSIS • Capshare pioneered software-based waterfall analysis for private companies • Capshare’s waterfall analysis takes into account: - Liquidation preferences - Participation rights and caps - Conversion rates -Cumulative dividends - PIK dividends - Warrants with exercise prices less than their liquidation preference per share • Executives and shareholders can see a complete breakdown of equity proceeds in any hypothetical exit scenario THE FOLLOWI NG S LI D ES P ROVI D E A G G R E G A T E WA T E R FA L L A N A LYS I S DA TA
  16. 16. EMPLOYEE WATERFALL VALUE BY STAGE Assuming each company is worth its latest post-money valuation, non-preferred shareholders (employees) would receive the following values in a liquidation scenario. Median results are much lower than median because larger deals skew the average. $18 $35 $53 $70 $0 Common Only Common + Convertibles $2.28 $3.71 A G G R E G A T E E MP LOY E E WA T E R FA L L VA LU E S BY S TA G E ( $ M) Series Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ $8.26 $63.07 $21.53 $17.87 $29.61 Median ValueMean Value
  17. 17. WATERFALL VALUE BY STAGE PER EMPLOYEE SHAREHOLDER Per employee waterfall proceeds peak around Series A and decrease thereafter as companies hire more employees. Founders still make more money each round but on average, employees make less. $300 $600 $900 $1,200 $0 $68.62 $90.89 P E R E MP LOYE E WA TE R FA L L VA LU E S BY S TA G E ( $000) $276.57 $410.92 $200.04 $53.02 $242.31 Common Only Common + Convertibles Series Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ Median ValueMean Value
  18. 18. INVESTOR WATERFALL VALUE BY STAGE Assuming each company is worth its latest post money valuation, preferred shareholders (investors) would recieve the following values in a liquidation scenario. Again median values are much lower than mean values. $35 $70 $105 $140 $0 $0.0 $0.0 A G G R E G A T E I N V E S TO R WA T E R FA L L VA LU E S BY S TA G E ( $ M) $4.55 $16.90 $133.37 $31.95 $45.5 Common Only Common + Convertibles Series Seed Series A Series B Series C Series D+ Median ValueMean Value
  19. 19. INVESTOR WATERFALL VALUE BY STAGE Investors make more and more per investor, even as the company grows. Investors proceeds are diluted far less than employee proceeds.

  20. 20. VOLUME (EQUITY ISSUANCES TO A SHAREHOLDER) The average number of equity issuance transactions (including electronic stock issuances) increases rapidly as companies grow. The volume is much higher including non-issuance transactions.
