“In volatile markets, companies tap a PIPE to cash” by Andrew Willis, The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail quotes Fasken lawyers in an article on PIPEs.

Law firm Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP does an annual survey of PIPE deals. It said in a recent report that such financing is well suited to uncertain conditions, including COVID-related market volatility. Writing before the outbreak of war in Europe, Faskens said: “We expect to see PIPE volumes remaining robust.”

“From the perspective of an investor, a PIPE can provide downside protection, an effective say in the business and upside gains,” the Fasken study said. “For issuers, a PIPE can act as an effective financing while securing a strategic partner, and in the case of those issuers facing tough times, allows for the raising of significant capital without selling the entire business at a depressed value.”
