Chicago, IL (PressExposure) September 23, 2008 -- Stephen H. Watkins, founder and CEO of Chicago-based Entrex, an entrepreneurial exchange to find, research, track, manage and trade interests in entrepreneurial companies, will speak at the Newbridge Sales Development Conference, held Sept. 19-21 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Miami. He will discuss âMonthly Alternative Returns for Investors Through TIGRcubâ¢ Licensed Funds.â
An innovation developed by Entrex, TIGRcubsâ¢ present a hybrid (neither equity nor debt) capital solution for efficient funding of $5 to $250 million growth-oriented private companies.
The brainchild of Watkins and the Entrex leadership team, the Top-line Income Generation Rights Certificates (TIGRcubsâ¢) are a novel investment tool that provide regular income distributions to investors and features a 0 percent equity dilution benefit to issuers. During a breakout session at the conference Watkins will discuss the proprietary TIGRcubsâ¢ concept, educate Newbridge representatives about the benefits of this new securities structure and highlight the $1.2 billion in funds currently forming to invest in TIGRcubâ¢ securities.
âTIGRcubsâ¢ operate simply by exchanging a sum of capital for a fixed percentage of a companyâs top-line revenue for an agreed upon period of time,â said Watkins. âThey offer a standardized structure, whose terms vary as a function of the issuerâs operating history and growth outlook, and provide an efficient and simple structure for private company financing transactions of $1-10 million and greater.â
Entrex is also a sponsor of the conference, hosted by Newbridge Financial, Inc., a full service broker/dealer and investment bank. Newbridge is not currently involved in a TIGRcubâ¢ product or fund.
