Couple thoughts - seems they're targeting wrong investors - should be vc, not or investors at this stage. Also converting prior debt into equity suggests company is not what was expected when originally funded. Growth story is inline with funding needs but seems to have changed over prior year. Too bad they didn't do vc instead. Pe will focus on a sale.
