>(*) There are at least 24 types of equity. Equity = securities. PPM’s have no tradeable value to bulk stock buyers. DPO’s are tradeable and cost nearly the same as PPM’s. Also, DPO’s do not require investors to be accredited. Attracting equity is both time and labor consuming. Selling equity without securites is like selling air. The SEC calls it securities fraud.
Minimum ROI for equity is typically 25% without deferred or participating clauses in term sheet. If these clauses are triggered the ROI expectation may jump to 70%. Ownership requirement for equity is typically from 51%. Equity typically consists of only 35% of film budget if at all.
>(**) Without a completion bond you cannot attract (LOTS of) individuals or (1 or 2) institutional equity investors. Minimum film budget preferably to justify the acquisition cost for a completion bond is $2M. You must BUY a bond to get one. Bonds are 1 of >many< operational costs in finance.
>(***) BUYING Insurance wraps are required to be considered an “investment grade asset” by institutional investors. Recommended for high or slate budgets like over $100M+. Similar in cost to completion bonds.
