Companies seeking to raise debt capital often issue convertible debt such as bonds or notes. Our team specializes in preparing offering memorandums for convertible debt. An offering memorandum for convertible debt is a document written for a company selling debt. In a convertible debt offering, there is a promise to repay an investor his/her full capital back at a specific time, called maturity date, and most likely with a fixed time for interest payments. However, in a convertible debt bond offering the bonds themselves will convert to equity a specific or given time in the future, giving the bond holder an ownership stake in the company. We have written, edited or assisted with hundreds of offering memorandums for private and public convertible bond issuances. Bond offerings are a popular method to raise debt capital and indeed many bond offerings will have issuers write a convertible bond offering memorandum.
The convertible bond offering memorandum will outline the terms of the debt securities offering. For example, if the company is selling bonds or bonds, the offering memorandum will detail the terms of the offering such as the interest rate and maturity date, payment and coupon dates, convertible bond or convertible bond dates and terms, and many other factors. Thus, the writing of a offering memorandum can assist in expediting the capital raising process.

The document itself should tell the company story, both the product offerings and the securities being offered in detail, including the team behind the company, the terms of the securities, rules such as 144A/Reg S and more.
