In defence of liquidation preferences
The Equity Kicker
NOVEMBER 9, 2016
It turns out that ‘time bomb’ is the much maligned and, I suspect, little understood, liquidation preference.

However, most of the later rounds or companies raise feature simple 1x liquidation preferences and we’re fine with that.
