HOW TO INCENTIVISE SHAREHOLDERS TO HELP FURTHER OPERATIONNALLY ?

Hi,

I am closing on a deal (but still got a 100k equity opening if you are interested, great IRR!) and through discussions with my investors, I'd like to find more ways to incentivise them to help operationnaly post-acquisition (they also have signaled they'd like the same).
The deal for investors is a bit of equity and some convertible-debt (with a non-conversion premium), and they are already getting a great IRR return, so don't want to allow any conversion of the convertible debt, and don't want to add any ratchet on top.

It's not a big target (~1m EBITDA), so giving them a salary doesn't feel super approriate, and also not exactly what I am after.

What mechanisms have you seen that would still incentivise them to help and get involved for the operations of the business (e.g; regular catch-up, advice, on-site visits...) ?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Clément Hurpin
