One of the sets of documents that we automated at AlphaTech is the bridge financing documents for an emerging company. Attached is a sample of the documents: Convertible Note and Subscription Agreement
Instead of just using form documents as most law firms do, robust automation allows us to deliver common document sets for emerging companies in a more efficient manner. So what else does “robust automation” yield? It improves document accuracy, provides a valuable knowledgebase from which to draw, and enables us to deliver common document sets to our clients quickly. It also frees up time of our lawyers to enable them to spend less time on basic contract drafting and more time on activities that afford our clients higher value.
Take for example the attached bridge financing documents. With a click of a few buttons and filling in of a few blanks, we can change the attached bridge financing document set from a $1,000,000 bridge financing with a single lead investor but with multiple closings and a 20% discount on the next round’s security to a set of documents that includes a $750,000 bridge financing from five investors in a single closing with 30% warrant coverage and a $5 million pre-money cap on the next round’s valuation for conversion purposes. To quote a client, “that’s neat.”
