Convertible Note Template

  • 6

Convertible loan agreements involve a multitude of terms, which facilitate their execution. However, these terms make convertible notes complex documents to deal with. We discussed in several articles the main terms and practices associated with convertible notes.

The first template that complies with EU securities legislation

In our experience with convertible debt, we discovered there is no unified template that complies with European securities legislation by providing for detailed disclosure information rights of the lenders. This is why we decided to share ours with the entrepreneurial community.

Often times, convertible loan agreements are favorable to one of the parties involved – lender-friendly or borrower-friendly. We have worked on the template in an attempt to balance the interests of both sides.

What is included in this template?

  • Term sheet table, outlining the core terms and conditions under which the convertible loan is issued
  • List of definitions, crucial for the interpretation and execution of the contract
  • Provision providing for lender’s rights in accordance with European securities legislation
  • Standard terms for a convertible loan agreement.

The template does NOT include country specific provisions which must be inserted in a convertible loan agreement under the country’s securities laws.

We advise you to make sure you get acquainted with your national specific provisions before preparing your convertible loan agreement.
