VA L U AT I O N AGREEMENT OF PRICE TO BUY AND SELL www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

INTRODUCTION The Valuation of a company is the price to buy the entire company whether it is public or private. It is usually quoted in the price of a share; however, for a private company you need to know the total value usually stated as PreMoney Valuation before investment and Post- Money Valuation or Market Capitalization after investment. www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

F M V- FA I R M A R K E T VA L U E ``The price, expressed in terms of cash equivalents, at which property would change hands between a hypothetical willing and able buyer and a hypothetical willing and able seller, acting at arms length in a open and unrestricted market, when neither is under compulsion to buy or sell and when both have reasonable knowledge of the relevant facts.`` www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

B U S I N E S S VA L U AT I O N S • Every valuation and Pricing is unique • In a M&A Transaction price or valuation comes down to the strategic value the acquirer brings to the transaction & the portion paid to the target • 65% of business owners don’t know what their company is worth • 85% have no exit strategy • 75% of their worth is tied up in their business www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

I N V E S TO R E X P E C TAT I O N S • , the most active M&A buyer paid < 20 mil with <20 people for 90 % of it`s targets • An Angel Investor has an expectation of 10X • Survey conducted among USA angel groups by Bill Payne in 2012. Average Pre-Money valuation is 2.96m & Median is 2.75m an increase over`11 • The usual range of valuation for an pre- commercialized company 1 to 3 mil • A Convertible Debenture (last weeks lunch and learn) is a way to take the valuation discussion off the table www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

VA L U AT I O N – HOW SUBJECTIVE IS IT? www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

I N V E S TO R E X P E C TAT I O N S • At the end of the day valuations are subjective • Many VC`s will not discuss investment until a price is set • A high valuation may create an orphaned financing or even worse a future down round • Businesses are sold not bought, a business should be preparing for an exit from the start • A company needs to understand the potential buyers universe (Financial vs. Strategic buyers) and what they are looking for. www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels

I N V E S TO R E X P E C TAT I O N S • A USA with concerning terms will have negative pressure on valuation • Valuation is calculated on a Fully Diluted Basis – all options, warrants, convertible debentures, vesting, etc. are converted for the purposes of presenting the `Capitalization Table` referred to as `Cap Table` • Valuation is caveat emptor – buyer beware. More investors have lost more money because they overpaid for a stock than has been lost due to fraud. (Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham = Value Investing) • Concentrated sales is negative for valuation • Bootstrapping and obtaining traction will assist a company build valuation www.mapleleafangels.com | info@mapleleafangels.com | 416.646.6235 | @mapleleafangels
