A capitalization table (or cap table) provides an analysis of the ownership of all the securities your company has issued. It includes each stakeholder’s percentage of ownership, types of securities, equity dilution, and value of equity in each round of investment. Cap table helps private companies to calculate their market value, especially when making financial decisions involving equity ownership, and market capitalization.
Many startups often use spreadsheets for cap tables. Excel is a good tool when you have a simple capital structure and a small number of stakeholders. However, when the business grows it becomes difficult to keep every data up-to-date on a spreadsheet. After multiple funding rounds, the cap table becomes more complex but tracking the data on your spreadsheet does not scale as your company does. Eventually, you need a tool to streamline your cap table management and this is when a tool like QuotaBook becomes handy. Let’s schedule a demo to discuss your needs and show you how we solve them.
