Convertible Loan Agreement

KShs 11,000.00

A Convertible Loan Agreement (CLA) is a financial instrument that combines elements of both debt and equity financing. It allows a lender to provide a loan to a company with the option to convert the loan into equity shares at a later date, typically during a future financing round. This type of agreement is particularly popular among startups and early-stage companies, as it provides them with the necessary capital to grow while delaying the valuation discussions until a more mature stage.
The CLA outlines specific terms such as the loan amount, interest rate, conversion conditions, and the conversion price. The conversion can be triggered by various events, such as reaching a certain milestone, a new funding round, or the loan’s maturity date. This flexibility makes CLAs an attractive option for both investors and companies. Investors benefit from the potential upside of equity ownership, while companies can secure funding without immediate dilution of ownership.
Key sections of a CLA typically include definitions, loan terms, interest payments, conversion terms, equity protection, covenants, and events of default. By aligning the interests of both parties, a Convertible Loan Agreement helps foster growth and stability in the early stages of a company’s development.
