Talltree is considering a $12m series B investment in Newco for CP with $12m FV or converting to 5m shares of common. The other investors are the founders, who have 10m shares of common, and the Series A investors, EBV, who have CP with $6m FV that can convert to 5m shares of common. In both of these structures, the Series B has a liquidation preference to the Series A. Both Talltree and EBV receive carried interest of 20% and charge management fees of 2 percent per year for all ten years. All the parties agree on an estimate of $30m for the total valuation of Newco, and the expected holding period is four years.
