Example Operating Company PPM Excerpt | By John S. Lore, Esq.
The Following is a concise model excerpt of a private placement memorandum (PPM) for an operating company (a single-entity issuer, rather than an investment fund). The PPM is based on a fictitious early stage New York medical device company raising series A financing for FDA approval and initial manufacturing.
Although the document is focused on a narrow industry, the excerpt illustrates the level of specificity that an operating company PPM should have, particularly in its risk factors. Many issuers make the mistake of relying on template-driven boilerplate language that fails to identify risks and contingencies specific to the company’s business and regulatory climate.
