How Do I Know Whether A PIPE is Good or Bad for the Issuer's Stock?

The key to understanding what effect a PIPE can have on the common stock of a particular Company is to study the terms and investors involved in the transaction. The terms of these PIPEs can be found in our easy to read Transaction Reports. The Transaction Report displays the exact terms of your company's placement and describes what those terms really mean in plain English. Our Glossary describes all the terms listed in the Transaction Report and explains which terms to pay careful attention to understand the overall strength or weakness of the placement. Every PIPE is a good indicator of what large institutions think of a company at the time of the closing. Therefore, everyone interested in investing in a company should understand and feel comfortable with every term of their private placement transactions before making an investment decision.Once you have understood the terms of a company's placement, it is important to understand the background of the institutions who have invested in it.

Our Investor Reports are important because if you understand the investment history and success record of the institutions funding your company, you can more accurately predict the potential movement of your company's stock price after the closing of the placement. An investor who only invests in companies whose stock prices invariably go down may not be a good partner for a company.At PlacementTracker we have designed a number of custom screening and reporting tools that can provide any PIPE market participant or PIPE market observer with all of the information they need to make an informed decision about a Company that has conducted a PIPE.
