Why an Offering Memorandum?
A prerequisite for any company seeking to raise capital and grow their business will include the writing of the two most essential documents of their company: a business plan and an investor offering memorandum, also referred to as a private placement memorandum. To attract accredited investors, venture capital and private equity firms, angels, and many other investor types, compelling documents are a must. The offering memorandum will outline the type of security the issuer is offering in return for receiving capital. While the business plan will be detail the plan of action of the company, the offering memo, or “OM”, will detail the terms of the offering, or the deal itself. The OM will highlight the key offering points to investors in the document (hence the term ‘offering memorandum’).

What is a Offering Memorandum?
An offering memorandum is a disclosure document used to raise capital. A company issuing or selling securities such as stock or bonds would need to hand an investors a disclosure document in order to comply with securities rules. The offering memorandum itself contains many features such as the terms of the offering, risk factors, management biographies, capitalization tables, tax implications for the investment and much more. The OM is also a large contract of sorts as the final piece of the document is the subscription agreement. The subscription agreement is the agreement between the subscriber and the issuer. Once signed by the investor, he/she is now a subscriber and will be given the securities illustrated in the offering memorandum. It is not uncommon for an OM to be lengthy, sometimes hundreds of pages long, but often anywhere from 20 to 100 hundred pages.
Offering Memorandum Characteristics
An offering memorandum (OM) is first and foremost a disclosure document. When a company seeks to raise capital it is required to clearly detail to investors what is being offered in return for funding. The OM is such a document. The memorandum will detail the type of securities being offered, such as shares or bonds (equity or debt), the pay-out times, risk factors, and other important features.
The offering memorandum is an opportunity to give investors a solid overview of a company’s current positioning vis-a-vis its products and market potential. While the offering memorandum is also similar to a large agreement, there are many other factors within an OM that distinguishes it from a basic contract. There are rules when selling securities within one’s state, province, or country, including to foreign investors. The OM must address the regulations being utilized while approaching investors.
An offering memorandum has one objective in mind: to raise capital in an efficient and legal way while protecting the issuers from investor grievances if the capital is lost at some point in the future. An offering memorandum
- Convey your positioning, company risks and opportunities in a professional document
- Highlight your product and service positioning
- Profile your management team, their experience and network
- Disclose rules and regulations the company will abide by
- Explain how investors will recoup initial investors, i.e. exit strategy
