In the first article in this deal terms series, we observed that the concepts covered in a typical term sheet can be grouped into four main categories of investor concerns: Deal Economics; Investor Rights/Protection; Governance, Management & Control; and Exits/Liquidity. In the second article in this deal terms series we gave an overview and mapping of all of the key term sheet clauses used by investors to address the concerns in each category. In the third article we dug deeper into the provisions relating to Deal Economics, in the fourth Investor Rights/Protection, and in this article we are going to tackle the Governance, Management and Control category.
