Southridge Advisors LLC now Southridge on “Death Spiral” Financing (formerly Southridge Capital )

Many amateur stock analysts and bloggers get confused about the term “death spiral” financing. Many pundants on stock forums and blogs typically mislead their fellow investors due to a lack of understanding.

Let us explain!

Common Question: Isn’t an Equity Line a “death spiral” financing?

In the past some equity facilities had negative drawbacks which took the control away from the issuer. These other facilities mandated draw downs in specified periods, required share deliveries on milestone dates, and in some cases prevented or penalized the issuer for seeking additional financing, or canceling the equity line. Additionally, they may only be offered in large sizes for the purpose of collecting a bigger management fee. The company’s that took these early lines were left without control, and contractually obligated to deliver shares which would be sold into the open market.

Not Southridge.

The Southridge Equity Purchase Facility (EPA) is completely different, and in no way should be considered a “death spiral” financing. Everything about our line exists to protect the issuer in as many was as possible. We start with a foundation of low upfront costs, and issue our facility in sizes that are tailored to fit the needs and growth plan (graduation plan) of each specific issuer.  With the Southridge Equity Purchase Facility issuers enjoy the full control of any and all draw downs, which includes the right to never draw down, and or cancel the line at any time without penalty. Like most equity financings the shares are issued at a small discount to market prices, although with the Southridge Equity Purchase Facility there are no banking fees, or warrant packages.

Our line has proven to be effective with many of our clients, raising necessary working capital for them to operate and grow to a “critical mass” of profitability. A sophisticated investor would not base an investment decision solely upon a stock chart, as that would not give a clear view of a company’s operations, management team, or current and ongoing concerns. For the same reasons, you cannot base an EPA’s effectiveness based upon a stock chart alone. The bottom line is that fundamentals move a stock price, and this idea is backed up by the world’s greatest investors. A company using the Southridge EPA has no obligation to deliver Southridge Shares, and makes all of the decisions regarding the timing and amounts of their draw downs based upon their need for cash.

Southridge is a strategic long-term partner with its portfolio companies, bringing solutions, and a skilled management team with over 50 years of experience.

Stephen M. Hicks and Southridge Sharing Expertise with Charitable Organizations

Providing Services to Charitable Organizations

Stephen Hicks sits on the board of several charities and advises in much the same way as he does for Southridge (formerly Southridge Capital Management). He, as part of a team of other like-minded individuals, ensures that the charities they participate in are maximizing the positive effect they can have on those in need whom they serve. Stephen also is able to share his expertise and give back to the community through his Daystar Foundation.

Why does he do it? He doesn’t specify, just that it feels natural to give back and he wouldn’t feel quite right not giving back to the community. He recommends that everyone and anyone be involved in their community, and whichever charity they believe in. “It’s what makes each of us a little better,” Stephen says.

On Ridgefield, Connecticut

Ridgefield, according to Steve Hicks, is the quintessential New England town. The people are humble, exceptionally generous, and great neighbors. Never has he met a community of more kind and generous people than those in Ridgefield. Everyone keeps an eye on each other’s kids, everyone knows each other. “I am proud to be part of that community,” says Stephen.

Educating the Youth Concerning Business in America

Stephen Hicks feels that every child, teen, and young adult should be aware of the importance of the small business and its role in the country’s success. Everyone should pay attention to what’s going on with the small business as well as large business as they are all essential in what makes this country great! Stephen is thinking about sponsoring an essay contest for several schools around the country to help the young get motivated about learning more about business, small business, and being a good corporate citizen. More will be announced in coming months.

“Years from now when I look back on my life…..”

“I hope to have built things that ‘mattered.’ I hope the business that I built—and those that I helped grow—are looked upon as honest, fair, and successful businesses that not only grew, but improved the lives of everyone that they came in contact with.

Generations after I am gone, I hope that the values, ethics, and positive things I have done or at least tried to do in my time continue to be driven forward to help and grow those generations beyond the present. I want the words “trust,” “honesty,” and “fair” to be on the lips of everyone who is in this business.”- Stephen M. Hicks
