“Businesses require cash throughout their life cycle. This is normally generated through operating activities in a profitable concern. There are, however, times when larger injections of cash are needed to fund an expansion of the business. Pollination Capital assists in raising the necessary funds."
Capital Raising Strategy
Management has to decide what type of capital injection is needed. Equity will reduce the risk of the extra funding but dilutes ownership. Debt injection will maintain the current ownership but reduce the strength of the balance sheet. The current balance sheet and cash flows determine the ability of the business to offer collateral to the financier and service the necessary debt.
