It is common for businesses to seek capital in order to facilitate their growth and investment.
This capital can come from a variety of sources, such as private equity houses, personal investors, or even through your bank by way of a loan or convertible loan note. If you have identified a need within your organisation for capital (perhaps you wish to purchase another business, buy expensive new machinery, or recruit highly qualified staff), then Hybrid Legal can be on hand to help.
While it may seem as simple as accepting the investor’s funds, there is often a lot more to it!
Investors will often wish to exchange their funds in return for shares within your growing company. It may be the case that they wish to have a more protective shareholders agreement, which requires bespoke articles of association. Allotting shares also requires you to complete formal paperwork, both for your own records and for Companies House.
If you have received a loan from your bank you may need to provide security for that loan. This is done through a formal document known as a debenture, which must be registered at Companies House.
Hybrid can assist you with preparing the formal paperwork as well as producing your filings for you, so there is no need for you to take the foot off the pedal in driving your business.

Understanding your business
Many traditional law firms forget this, but it’s the most important step. In order to draft documents, and protect you, we need to understand what it is that you do, why you do it differently, and what your goals are.
Once you have identified your investors, we will assist you in preparing the paperwork, from bespoke Articles of Association to Debentures, we will make sure your business is protected and your investors are happy.
It is time to sign on the dotted line! But it is impossible to get all your investors, shareholders and directors together at the same time. Do not worry, we have the tools for the job. We can help you get the entire document signed and sealed without a drop of sweat.
It may be the case that over the years you have questions about the agreement, an investor wishes to withdraw, or you have another big plan up your sleeve. Hybrid will always be on hand to help you.
