Revenue royalty notes afford the private investor the opportunity to collect current income with a return on investment (ROI) that can be comparable to private equity. Unlike distributions from private equity investments, payments received from Royalty Notes are not tied to the Company’s available operating cash flow or profitability.
High growth issuers appreciate Royalty Notes because the Notes avoid equity dilution. Companies do not issue shares or membership interests. Plus, because royalties come from top-line revenues, issuers avoid fixed-charge demands of traditional private debt financing that are proportional to revenues.
