Hey SFs!

What would you say, how common are Finder's fees linked to equity value (rather than enterprise value)? What are the market rate % in this case? Any tips on how to address potentially changing financing structure well? Can you perhaps share some agreement that you find relevant in this context?

I personally always prefer a "Lehman scale"- based approach linked to aggregate consideration (cash-free, debt-free basis). However, from time to time I come across people that expect a flat % rate linked to equity value ...

Any advise is welcome. Thanks!

Kind regards, Peter
