Cap Table Management
Companies often have a hard time keeping track of their equity. Having a good cap table management system in place can let you know who owns the company and how much the company is owned. Keeping track of this helps in making sound financial decisions that have an impact on the market capitalization and the company’s value.
What is a cap table?
A cap table, also known as a capitalization table, is a chart used by startups to display ownership interests in the company. It shows the value of your company’s securities (stock, options, warrants, and so on), as well as how much each investor paid for them and what proportion of the company they hold.
Why do companies need a cap table?
A cap table is vital for companies when making important financial decisions. This can affect everything from who has control of the company to how you price future fundraising rounds. Overall, a cap table determines the health of a company, which allows investors, shareholders and other important players of the company to see how the company is performing.
Importance of an accurate and up-to-date cap table as your business grows
The capitalization table displays who owns what percentage of the corporation and what economic and voting rights they have. Shareholder information, ownership position, rights to purchase further shares in the future, vesting schedules, voting percentages, and purchase price are all included in the cap table. It compiles all relevant capitalization data and presents it in an easy-to-understand format to assist founders in making executive-level decisions such as seeking stockholder approval, awarding grants to new hires, raising additional rounds of funding, and calculating liquidation waterfalls for a liquidity event.
