Companies issuing debt securities often raise capital by selling convertible notes. Our team specializes in preparing private placement memorandums for convertible debt notes. A private placement memorandum for convertible notes is a document written for a company selling debt. The document is often referred to as an “OM” for short. In a convertible OM 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 note offering the notes themselves will convert to equity a specific or given time in the future, giving the note holder an ownership stake in the company. We have written, edited or assisted with hundreds of private placement memorandums for private and public convertible note issuance. Note offerings are a popular method to raise debt capital and indeed many note offerings will have issuers write a convertible note private placement memorandum.
