An Active Summer 2020 — New Features, New Opportunities — CityFALCON Blog

We’re most of the way through the hottest part of the year (for our fellow northern hemispherians), and at CityFALCON we’ve been cooking up many new features and improvements for the platform.


A top-up funding round

Capital at risk — you may lose your entire investment.

In order to take advantage of the UK government’s Future Fund, we are running a top-up funding round. The scheme matches private investment pound-for-pound, so if we raise £300k from private investors, the UK government puts in £300k too. We must apply for the scheme, so receipt of matching funds is subject to approval of our application by the UK government.

The round will be lead by a successful serial entrepreneur who has had a c. £500m exit before and who is pledging £150k. We currently have eight months runway, and with the current pledge, Future Fund matching, revenue, and expected UK R&D reimbursements, we can expect a runway at least until 2022 (again, subject to approval and a successful top-up round).

Moreover, this is a convertible debt investment. If the company were to fail, the investors of this round would be debt-holders and therefore receive payouts from any distress sale of our tech and IP. On the other hand, if the company is valued very highly, the convertible debt holders can convert to equity to reap more upside than they could with non-converitble debt.

The terms of the convertible debt instrument are: 36 months to maturity, 8% interest, 100% premium if not converted, a 20% discount, and convertible at a “qualifying round” or at the vote of the debtholders. We are implementing a £10.5 valuation cap as well to prevent dilution in the event our valuation spikes later.

Visit our Invest page for more information. Since convertible debt is complicated, please see this Seedrs post explaining convertible debt in more detail. They also have a landing page discussing the Future Fund. Your capital is at risk. Even with the favourable terms and protection of debt, there is the possibility you could lose your entire investment.

Finally, if you’d rather peruse all filings from a particular source, visit the Filings Directory page.

Expanding any filings “card” will show additional information, and clicking the More button will take you to a page containing structured information about the filing and a PDF of the filing itself:

Individual filings and associated information

As you may have noticed, there are two new tabs on the individual company pages: Info and Alternative Data. The info tab shows basic company information, like headquarters locations, sector, legal entities, and stock tickers.

The alternative data tab currently contains Trustpilot customer ratings, so you can judge customer satisfaction and engagement. This is especially useful when researching less prolific companies that may not have a lot of news, but it also serves as an additional vector to research an investment target, beyond the traditional methods of financial statement analysis and reading the news.

Test the feature yourself by viewing the Trustpilot rating for Revolut.
