Our investment process is created to provide prompt feedback to potential investees on the progress of our deliberations.
The process is as follows:
Stage 1: Desktop or initial review of the investment
This may take the form of an initial discussion or a review of your business plan to assess whether the business is suitable for venture capital or private equity.
Stage 2 – Face to Face Assessment:
This involves a meeting with the business owners and managers to consider and debate the business case.
Stage 3 - Term Sheet:
If the initial assessment is positive, Firefly Capital will prepare and agree a term sheet with the owners which will include an exclusivity period and key actions required to complete the due diligence and final transaction.
Stage 4 - Due Diligence:
Following completion of a NDA (non disclosure agreement), Firefly Capital, and its advisers, will complete a due diligence investigation of key areas of the business, intellectual property, operations and its assets and liabilities.
Stage 5 – Completing or executing the Transaction
Legal agreements are signed, conditions precedent is fulfilled and Firefly Capital invests in the business.
