You can now enable estimated values for interests. Carta can automatically calculate and provide estimates for vested, unvested, and outstanding values as well as threshold gain or loss for profits interests, and MOIC.
What's important or valuable about this change?
You can demonstrate the value of equity to interest holders, including employees, investors, board members, and advisors. They can see estimated values for their interests in their Carta portfolio.
There are multiple values available for you to choose from and each value includes information on how it is being calculated, which improves transparency.
You have the flexibility to choose whether you want to calculate estimated values at all, make the values visible to Admins only or to Admins and interest holders.
What do I need to do?
Equity value estimates are based on the latest per-unit value. A per-unit value can come from a Carta 409A valuation or company Admins can manually input values obtained from other sources, such as a board determination or a recent fundraising round.
