Empirical Results C. Long-term Performance and Survival a. Empirical Evidence. There is a close link between venture capital VC  and the stock markets in Germany. More and more companies went public via initial public offering IPO  to profit from the positive market sentiment, which guaranteed high cash inflows. Thus, the VC business benefited considerably from this bull market. The effect of the large profits for venture capitalists VCists was an exponential growth of the VC industry between and Thus, Germany could narrow the gap to the United States, whose VC venture capital market is still by far the largest one in the world.
However, the situation completely changed with the bursting of the New Economy bubble in , leading to a worldwide downswing of the stock markets, which have not recovered since then. Due to the adverse stock market environment, the IPO market has dried up, too. In the US, the situation is similar with the number of IPOs decreasing from in to only 16 in the first six months of N. The latest climax of this anemic situation was the decision to shut down the NM as of September 26, The recent developments on the stock markets provoke a deeper investigation of the IPO market.
The aim of this paper is to compare VC backed with non-backed IPOs and to analyze the impact of VC on the performance of the company shares. Thereby, we attempt to shed light on the question if VC backing provides a significant edge in comparison to non-backed companies.
Starting in Chapter I, we describe the VC cycle, enumerate the different possibilities VCists dispose of in the exit stage and point out why IPOs are favored by both VCists and the management of the backed venture. It will turn out, that there exist significant differences in issuer and offering characteristics. Referring to the underpricing phenomenon, we first examine the initial returns. Then, we compare the performance after the lock-up period, which offers the first exit opportunity for VCists.
To round off, we observe the long-term performance of the shares, also taking a look at the survival rate. All findings will be concluded in Chapter IV. A VC investment can be divided into several consecutive stages: In the first stage, the sourcing , the VC company identifies potential investments. In the following evaluation stage, the VCist screens extremely carefully the business plans of the solicitors and selects the most promising venture to be backed. In the final stage, the VC company exits the investment by selling its shares of the backed company.
The exit stage is very important for both the VCist and the management of the backed firm. As the VCist does not receive interest payments for the invested capital, the exit stage is crucial to refinance the VC funds and to realize a profit. For instance, a profitable exit increases the reputation of the VCist, which makes it easier for him to raise new capital and to find good investment projects.
On the other hand, a blunder may endanger the existence of the VC company because it loses its credibility. Due to two reasons the exit stage is also decisive for the management of the backed company: First, the exit can be part of a new financing round. Having exhausted the limited capital resources of the VC fund, the venture may get access to new capital sources by going public or by being sold to another company.
Hence, the exit can be the preparation for future expansion. Second, the exit is decisive about the organizational future of the venture: Through the exit of the VCist, who had important control rights due to his considerable investment, the management may either regain all decision rights and manage the future of an independent company; or the venture will be acquired by another large corporation which may terminate the existence of the venture as an independent entity.
Excluding the possibility of the liquidation of an unsuccessful venture, there are four ways of concluding a VC investment: company buy back, secondary sale, trade sale, and IPO. In the following, the pros and cons of each exit route will be described. A company buy back is the repurchase of shares by the management of the backed company, also known as management buy-out MBO.
Generally, this is the least favored exit route for VCists. It is mostly used when the backed company is poorly performing, which results in a lack of other potential buyers. For instance, some family owned, midsize companies often insist on a pre-emption right before an IPO in order to keep the control over the company Achleitner If a VCist sells shares of the backed company to another financial investor, a secondary sale takes place.
A secondary sale may be positive before a new financing round for the VC investment, because it requires an independent valuation by a third party. Moreover, it is recommended if the relationship between management and VCist has broken down. Generally, the shares are either sold to market competitors or to important customers and suppliers seeking a vertical integration Achleitner A trade sale is a cheap, fast and simple exit route.
The VCist can immediately cash in its shares of the backed venture and may receive a premium on the selling price for synergy, market share or market entry. However, this exit route may be opposed by the management, who would be controlled by a third party. Thus, having sold his shares, the VCist has not terminated his risk exposure.
Finally, many VCists raise the concern about an insufficient amount of potential trade buyers. Though this disadvantage can be avoided by an early exit planning and a strategic business orientation according to the needs of the targeted buyers Achleitner By doing so, they excluded strategic purchasers who might have been willing to pay a premium in order to penetrate a new market, and possibly put a cap on the selling price.
Thus, the quotation at the stock market can be considered as an additional marketing channel for the company. VCists, especially the younger ones, can use a successful IPO to signal their ability, enhance their reputation, and hence improve their long-run fund raising see Chapter III. The negative aspects of an IPO are high costs for the preparation and follow-up costs for fulfilling the transparency requirements.
That is a lot of money for young ventures, which often have not yet reached the break-even point. In addition, the timing of the IPO is crucial. Due to the current bearish markets, IPO activity is close to zero and many VCists willing to exit via IPO have to wait for an indeterminate period for the upswing of the share markets.
An analysis of the year book statistics of the BVK from to revealed the frequency of use for the different exit routes in Germany: The most frequently used exit route were trade sales There was a significant slump of trade sales in The second important exit route were company buy backs.
The percentage slightly decreased from The number of secondary sales almost doubled within the analyzed period 4. These figures clearly underline how heavily the bear market has affected the IPO business. Interestingly, the revenues after IPO, i. The most striking aspect was the skyrocketing of the divestments through total losses. In , Being the highest percentage of all possible exit routes in , this result evidently indicates the hardships, VCists and the backed companies have faced during the current economic slump.
Contrarily, the number of trade sales increased steadily from in to in And because they provide new companies with a great deal of their initial financing, they have certain rights and responsibilities, including how and when a company goes public. Venture capitalists look and wait for the most optimal time to conduct an IPO. This is to make sure they're able to exit their position in a company while making the best possible return. The alternative to an IPO for a venture capital-backed company is being acquired—getting purchased by another company.
The acquisition of a venture capital-backed company is known as a trade sale. Both options are known as exit strategies because they allow venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to get money out of their investments.
In lean economic times, there tend to be fewer venture-capital-backed IPOs because of low investor confidence. As a result of the financial crisis , and saw record low numbers of venture-capital-backed IPOs. Venture capital , just like angel investing and crowdfunding options, is an attractive option for new companies.
This is especially true for entities that have limited operating histories and are too small to raise capital in the public markets. Companies that fall into this category may not be at the point where they can secure a bank loan or complete a debt offering. Attracting venture capital is very different from raising debt or a loan. While lenders have a legal right to interest on a loan and repayment of the capital irrespective of the success or failure of a business, venture capital invested in exchange for an equity stake in the business carries no such legal protection and is speculative in nature.
The return on a venture capitalist's investment depends entirely on the growth and profitability of the business. This means that a venture capitalist takes a risk of loss along with the expectation of a return on their investment. Uber went public in a venture capital-backed IPO in May Trading Strategies.
