I've had a quick search of the site and can't see anything similar, so posting my first topic. Hope that's ok, but please direct me if there is a better place to put this.
I have the opportunity to invest in a private US start up company (incorporated in Delaware), either via 2 year convertible bonds or direct equity.
I've been trying to look at legal and tax issues associated with
- future initial investment
- any dividend payments
- and, capital gains from any sale
I'd be grateful for any advice or sources of information to review to help in my appraisal. The opportunity looks interesting, but I am concerned the overseas complications might skew the attractiveness.
