Liquid Stock closes private company liquidity fund
Liquid Stock (Liquid) has closed its flagship fund, Liquid Stock Fund I, with USD161 million of capital.
Liquid is a source of liquidity for option holders and stockholders of private companies looking for tax efficient solutions to fund stock option exercise or for general liquidity needs. Through Fund I and separately managed investment vehicles, Liquid also provides company-wide tax optimised solutions for expiring option plans and employee favourable alternatives to tender offers.
Greg Martin, Founding Partner of Liquid, says: “We continue to see strong demand for financing solutions that address the needs of stockholders and employees who are looking to optimise their tax positions and maximise their net worth. Our solutions, experience and partnership approach works particularly well for private companies that are focused on aligning the interests of the company with their employees. Our team brings a long history with a strong track record of solving the challenges faced by private companies and their employees, as well as a strong understanding of their businesses.”
Liquid’s innovative approach to addressing an emerging asset class by collaborating with companies that have remained private longer has gained institutional support from a range of leading secondary funds, primary funds and fund of funds.
