EMPEA | LAVCA Structuring for Exit

The EMPEA | LAVCA Structuring for Exit report, created with support from Adobe Capital and IDB Lab is a deep dive analysis of innovative financing approaches used by investors in Latin America and other global markets to generate liquidity in challenging exit environments.

This practical tool for investors and entrepreneurs includes a taxonomy of financing approaches across the debt-to-equity spectrum, as well as resource tables of advantages, risks, and typical company profiles for each instrument.

Six in-depth case studies from Latin America, India and the Caucasus detail deal sourcing, deal terms, investment management, and exit and returns. A special section summarizes lessons learned and best practices.

Grounded in LAVCA data and interviews with 30 active investors, the report outlines how both traditional commercial and impact investors have utilized deal structuring mechanisms to expand the range of investible opportunities, meet impact goals, achieve downside protection, and realize stellar returns.

Thank you to our partners New Ventures and IDB Lab. Save the date for upcoming virtual case study discussions from the report at FLII @ Home on 24-28 May 2021. More details to come.
