Advanced Subscription Agreement (ASA)

An Advanced Subscription Agreement (ASA), similar to Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE) is a financial instrument used to raise capital for early-stage startups and companies. It is a form of fundraising that allows businesses to secure investment from investors without setting an exact valuation for the company at the time of investment. Widely utilised in the UK and Europe, it seamlessly aligns with diverse tax relief schemes such as SEIS (Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme) and EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme).

The main features of an ASA include:

  1. Future Equity: Investors contribute funds that convert into company ownership during a future financing round.
  2. No Fixed Valuation: The company's exact valuation is not determined at the time of investment.
  3. Valuation Cap and Discount: ASA may have a cap on the maximum conversion price and offer a discount to incentivize early investors.
  4. Simplified and Cost-Efficient: ASA is a straightforward and cost-effective fundraising method for early-stage startups.

For example, a tech company seeks to raise funds to expand its product line. They offer ASAs to a group of investors. An early-stage investor decides to invest $10,000 through an ASA. When the startup secures a future funding round, the investors initial investment converts into equity, giving them a stake in the company's success.
