Should the interest on convertible notes be paid in cash in some cases?

on Tue, 03/08/2016 - 23:09

When startups raise capital from outside investors, one financial structure commonly used is called a convertible (promissory) note. There are several motivations for startups & investors to use this arrangement.

One thing is coming back to bite me, though, and makes me wonder if the terms of it ought to change in common use: conversion of the interest into stock at conversion.

Typically, a note accures interest over the time that it remains a debt.

Recorded live at Dogglounge Internet Radio on 2016 Feb 07 (right before the Super Bowl. Happy for the Bronco's fans, but was peeved that Brady got boo'd during the past Super Bowl MVPs recognition ceremony.)

Late last year I started a semi-regular show online, playing Deep House music. I've long been a listener to the station - Dogglounge.com - and am pleased to be invited to be a DJ there. My DJ name in life is "catalyst".

I generally post all my sets there online in the Podcast section, along with all the other DJs on the station. (Go there, and subscribe to the iTuens podcast feed to get all the sets downloaded to your iTunes / phone!) Or, pick up the Dogglounge Radio iOS app to listen directly and participate in the chat room with the DJs as they play.

I also post them online at my Mixcloud

This weekend was Nina Flower’s birthday, and she asked if I could fill in for her set. But of course; She definitely deserves time for a great annual “survival ritual”.

I had to dig in the crate a bit for old tunes, since I didn’t have time to go find new stuff. So there’s a few certified dogglounge classics™ in this mix.
