Note: These documents are from http://ycombinator.com/seriesaa.html include the following disclaimer (from that site): Y Combinator and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati are happy to announce the Series AA Equity Financing Documents. Their goal is to make angel funding rounds for startups easier for both sides. These documents were originally created for YC-funded startups to use when raising angel rounds. They seem to have worked well in trial ru... show morens so far, so we're open-sourcing them. While they may not be suitable for all situations, the goal was to make the terms fairly neutral. So while we would of course advise both parties using these documents to have their lawyers look at them, they provide a starting point that we hope can be used in many situations without too many modifications. Needless to say, neither YC nor WSGR assumes any responsibility for any consequence of using these documents. Importers Note: Formatting still needs to improved in lower sections.

SERIES AA PREFERRED STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT
This Series AA Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made as of _______ __, 200__, by and among [company name], a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the persons and entities (each, an “Investor” and collectively, the “Investors”) listed on the Schedule of Investors attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Schedule of Investors”).
Authorization, Sale and Issuance of Series AA Preferred Stock
1.1 Authorization. The Company will, prior to the Initial Closing (as defined below), authorize (a) the sale and issuance of up to [_______] shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s Series AA Preferred Stock, par value $[___] per share (the “Series AA Preferred”), having the rights, privileges, preferences and restrictions set forth in the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Restated Certificate”) and (b) the reservation of shares of Common Stock for issuance upon conversion of the Shares (the “Conversion Shares”).
1.2 Sale and Issuance of Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Investor agrees, severally and not jointly, to purchase, and the Company agrees to sell and issue to each Investor, the number of Shares set forth in the column designated “Number of Series AA Shares” opposite such Investor’s name on the Schedule of Investors, at a cash purchase price of $[_____] per share (the “Purchase Price”). The Company’s agreement with each Investor is a separate agreement, and the sale and issuance of the Shares to each Investor is a separate sale and issuance.
Closing Dates and Delivery Closing
The purchase, sale and issuance of the Shares shall take place at one or more closings (each of which is referred to in this Agreement as a “Closing”). The initial Closing (the “Initial Closing”) shall take place at the Company’s offices at [insert address], at [insert time] local time on [insert initial closing date], or such other date as the Company determines in its sole discretion. If less than all of the Shares are sold and issued at the Initial Closing, then, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Company may sell and issue at one or more subsequent closings (each, a “Subsequent Closing”), within 120 days after the Initial Closing, up to the balance of the unissued Shares to such persons or entities as may be approved by the Company in its sole discretion. Any such sale and issuance in a Subsequent Closing shall be on the same terms and conditions as those contained herein, and such persons or entities shall, upon execution and delivery of the relevant signature pages, become parties to, and be bound by, this Agreement and the Investors’ Rights Agreement in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C (the “Rights Agreement,” and together with this Agreement, the “Agreements”), without the need for an amendment to any of the Agreements except to add such person’s or entity’s name to the appropriate exhibit to such Agreements, and shall have the rights and obligations hereunder and thereunder, in each case as of the date of the applicable Subsequent Closing. Each Subsequent Closing shall take place at such date, time and place as shall be approved by the Company in its sole discretion. Immediately after each Closing, the Schedule of Investors will be amended to list the Investors purchasing Shares hereunder and the number of Shares issued to each Investor hereunder at each such Closing. The Company will furnish to each Investor copies of the amendments to the Schedule of Investors referred to in the preceding sentence. Delivery
. At each Closing, the Company will deliver to each Investor in such Closing a certificate registered in such Investor’s name representing the number of Shares that such Investor is purchasing in such Closing against payment of the purchase price therefor as set forth in the column designated “Purchase Price” opposite such Investor’s name on the Schedule of Investors, by (a) check payable to the Company, (b) wire transfer in accordance with the Company’s instructions, (c) cancellation of indebtedness or (d) any combination of the foregoing. In the event that payment by an Investor is made, in whole or in part, by cancellation of indebtedness, then such Investor shall surrender to the Company for cancellation at the Closing any evidence of indebtedness or shall execute an instrument of cancellation in form and substance acceptable to the Company.
Representations and Warranties of the Company
A Schedule of Exceptions, if necessary, shall be delivered to the Investors in connection with each Closing. Except as set forth on the Schedule of Exceptions delivered to the Investors at the applicable Closing, the Company hereby represents and warrants to the Investors as follows:
Organization, Good Standing and Qualification
. The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company has the requisite corporate power and authority to own and operate its properties and assets, to carry on its business as presently conducted, to execute and deliver the Agreements, to issue and sell the Shares and the Conversion Shares and to perform its obligations pursuant to the Agreements and the Restated Certificate. The Company is presently qualified to do business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction where the failure to be so qualified could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or business as now conducted (a “Material Adverse Effect”).
Immediately prior to the Initial Closing, the authorized capital stock of the Company will consist of [_______] shares of Common Stock, of which [_______] shares are issued and outstanding and [_______] shares of Preferred Stock, all of which are designated Series AA Preferred and none of which are issued and outstanding. The Common Stock and the Series AA Preferred shall have the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions set forth in the Restated Certificate. The outstanding shares have been duly authorized and validly issued in compliance with applicable laws, and are fully paid and nonassessable. The Company has reserved: the Shares for issuance pursuant to this Agreement;
(ii) shares of Common Stock (as may be adjusted in accordance with the provisions of the Restated Certificate) for issuance upon conversion of the Shares; and
(iii) [_______] shares of Common Stock authorized for issuance to employees, consultants and directors pursuant to its [______] Stock Plan, under which options to purchase [________] shares are issued and outstanding as of the date of this Agreement.
The Shares, when issued and delivered and paid for in compliance with the provisions of this Agreement, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. The Conversion Shares have been duly and validly reserved and, when issued in compliance with the provisions of this Agreement, the Restated Certificate and applicable law, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. The Shares and the Conversion Shares will be free of any liens or encumbrances, other than any liens or encumbrances created by or imposed upon the Investors; provided, however, that the Shares and the Conversion Shares are subject to restrictions on transfer under U.S. state and/or federal securities laws and as set forth herein and in the Rights Agreement. Except as set forth in the Rights Agreement, the Shares and the Conversion Shares are not subject to any preemptive rights or rights of first refusal. Authorization
. All corporate action on the part of the Company and its directors, officers and stockholders necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of the Agreements by the Company, the authorization, sale, issuance and delivery of the Shares and the Conversion Shares, and the performance of all of the Company’s obligations under the Agreements has been taken or will be taken prior to the Initial Closing. The Agreements, when executed and delivered by the Company, shall constitute valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable in accordance with their terms, except (i) as limited by laws of general application relating to bankruptcy, insolvency and the relief of debtors and (ii) as limited by rules of law governing specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and by general principles of equity.
. The Company was recently formed, has not yet begun significant operations, and has not prepared any financial statements.
. All of the Company’s agreements and contracts in effect as of the date of this Agreement with a value in excess of [$25,000] and all other contracts deemed material by the Company are as set forth in the Schedule of Exceptions (the “Material Contracts”). The Material Contracts are, to the Company’s knowledge, valid, binding and in full force and effect in all material respects, subject to the laws of general application relating to bankruptcy, insolvency and the relief of debtors and the rules of law governing specific performance, injunctive relief and other equitable remedies.
. To the knowledge of the Company (without having conducted any special investigation or patent search), the Company owns or possesses or can obtain on commercially reasonable terms sufficient legal rights to all patents, trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights, trade secrets, licenses (software or otherwise), information, processes and similar proprietary rights (“Intellectual Property”) necessary to the business of the Company as presently conducted, the lack of which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except for agreements with its own employees or consultants, standard end-user license agreements, support/maintenance agreements and agreements entered in the ordinary course of the Company’s business, there are no outstanding options, licenses or agreements relating to the Intellectual Property, and the Company is not bound by or a party to any options, licenses or agreements with respect to the Intellectual Property of any other person or entity. The Company has not received any written communication alleging that the Company has violated any of the Intellectual Property of any other person or entity.
Proprietary Information and Invention Assignment . Each technical and senior managerial employee of the Company has executed a confidential information and invention assignment agreement. To the knowledge of the Company, no such employee is in violation of such confidential information and invention assignment agreement. Title to Properties and Assets; Liens
. The Company has good and marketable title to its properties and assets, and has good title to all its leasehold interests, in each case subject to no material mortgage, pledge, lien, lease, encumbrance or charge, other than (i) liens for current taxes not yet due and payable, (ii) liens imposed by law and incurred in the ordinary course of business for obligations not past due, (iii) liens in respect of pledges or deposits under workers’ compensation laws or similar legislation, and (iv) liens, encumbrances and defects in title which do not in any case materially detract from the value of the property subject thereto or have a Material Adverse Effect, and which have not arisen otherwise than in the ordinary course of business.
Compliance with Other Instruments. The Company is not in violation of any material term of its Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, each as amended to date, or, to the Company’s knowledge, in any material respect of any term or provision of any material indebtedness, contract or agreement to which it is party which would have a Material Adverse Effect. To the Company’s knowledge, the Company is not in violation of any federal or state statute, rule or regulation applicable to the Company the violation of which would have a Material Adverse Effect. The execution and delivery of the Agreements by the Company, the performance by the Company of its obligations pursuant to the Agreements, and the issuance of the Shares and the Conversion Shares, will not result in any material violation of, or materially conflict with, or constitute a material default under, the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, each as may be amended to date. Tax Returns and Payments
. The Company has timely filed all tax returns required to be filed by it with appropriate federal, state and local governmental agencies, except where the failure to do so would not have a Material Adverse Effect. These returns and reports are true and correct in all material respects. All taxes shown to be due and payable on such returns, any assessments imposed, and, to the Company’s knowledge, all other taxes due and payable by the Company on or before the Initial Closing have been paid or will be paid prior to the time they become delinquent.
Representations and Warranties of the Investors
Each Investor hereby, severally and not jointly, represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
. Such Investor understands that the Shares and the Conversion Shares, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, the availability of which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of such Investor’s representations as expressed herein or otherwise made pursuant hereto.
. Such Investor is acquiring the Shares and the Conversion Shares, for investment for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof, and that such Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. Such Investor further represents that it does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person or entity to sell, transfer or grant participation to such person or entity or to any third person or entity with respect to any of the Shares or the Conversion Shares.
. Such Investor has substantial experience in evaluating and investing in private placement transactions of securities in companies similar to the Company and acknowledges that such Investor can protect its own interests. Such Investor has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters so that such Investor is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its investment in the Company.
Speculative Nature of Investment
. Such Investor understands and acknowledges that the Company has a limited financial and operating history and that an investment in the Company is highly speculative and involves substantial risks. Such Investor can bear the economic risk of such Investor’s investment and is able, without impairing such Investor’s financial condition, to hold the Shares and the Conversion Shares for an indefinite period of time and to suffer a complete loss of such Investor’s investment.
Access to Data
. Such Investor has had an opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from, the officers of the Company concerning the Agreements, the exhibits and schedules attached hereto and thereto and the transactions contemplated by the Agreements, as well as the Company’s business, management and financial affairs, which questions were answered to its satisfaction. Such Investor believes that it has received all the information such Investor considers necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to purchase the Shares and the Conversion Shares. Such Investor understands that such discussions, as well as any information issued by the Company, were intended to describe certain aspects of the Company’s business and prospects, but were not necessarily a thorough or exhaustive description. Such Investor acknowledges that any business plans prepared by the Company have been, and continue to be, subject to change and that any projections included in such business plans or otherwise are necessarily speculative in nature, and it can be expected that some or all of the assumptions underlying the projections will not materialize or will vary significantly from actual results. Such Investor also acknowledges that it is not relying on any statements or representations of the Company or its agents for legal advice with respect to this investment or the transactions contemplated by the Agreements.
. The Investor is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D, Rule 501(a), promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act and shall submit to the Company such further assurances of such status as may be reasonably requested by the Company.
. The residency of the Investor (or, in the case of a partnership or corporation, such entity’s principal place of business) is correctly set forth on the Schedule of Investors.
. Such Investor acknowledges that the Shares and the Conversion Shares must be held indefinitely unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act or an exemption from such registration is available. Such Investor is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act which permit limited resale of shares purchased in a private placement subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including among other things, the existence of a public market for the shares, the availability of certain current public information about the Company, the resale occurring not less than one year after a party has purchased and paid for the security to be sold, the sale being effected through a “broker’s transaction” or in transactions directly with a “market maker” and the number of shares being sold during any three-month period not exceeding specified limitations. Such Investor understands that the current public information referred to above is not now available and the Company has no present plans to make such information available. Such Investor acknowledges and understands that notwithstanding any obligation under the Rights Agreement, the Company may not be satisfying the current public information requirement of Rule 144 at the time the Investor wishes to sell the Shares or the Conversion Shares, and that, in such event, the Investor may be precluded from selling such securities under Rule 144, even if the other requirements of Rule 144 have been satisfied. Such Investor acknowledges that, in the event all of the requirements of Rule 144 are not met, registration under the Securities Act or an exemption from registration will be required for any disposition of the Shares or the underlying Common Stock. Such Investor understands that, although Rule 144 is not exclusive, the Securities and Exchange Commission has expressed its opinion that persons proposing to sell restricted securities received in a private offering other than in a registered offering or pursuant to Rule 144 will have a substantial burden of proof in establishing that an exemption from registration is available for such offers or sales and that such persons and the brokers who participate in the transactions do so at their own risk.
No Public Market
. Such Investor understands and acknowledges that no public market now exists for any of the securities issued by the Company and that the Company has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the Company’s securities.
Such Investor has all requisite power and authority to execute and deliver the Agreements, to purchase the Shares hereunder and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of the Agreements. All action on the part of the Investor necessary for the authorization, execution, delivery and performance of the Agreements, and the performance of all of the Investor’s obligations under the Agreements, has been taken or will be taken prior to the Closing. The Agreements, when executed and delivered by the Investor, will constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Investor, enforceable in accordance with their terms except: (i) to the extent that the indemnification provisions contained in the Rights Agreement may be limited by applicable law and principles of public policy, (ii) as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and (iii) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies or by general principles of equity. No consent, approval, authorization, order, filing, registration or qualification of or with any court, governmental authority or third person is required to be obtained by the Investor in connection with the execution and delivery of the Agreements by the Investor or the performance of the Investor’s obligations hereunder or thereunder. Brokers or Finders
. Such Investor has not engaged any brokers, finders or agents, and neither the Company nor any other Investor has, nor will, incur, directly or indirectly, as a result of any action taken by the Investor, any liability for brokerage or finders’ fees or agents’ commissions or any similar charges in connection with the Agreements.
. Such Investor has reviewed with its own tax advisors the U.S. federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences of this investment and the transactions contemplated by the Agreements. With respect to such matters, such Investor relies solely on such advisors and not on any statements or representations of the Company or any of its agents, written or oral. The Investor understands that it (and not the Company) shall be responsible for its own tax liability that may arise as a result of this investment or the transactions contemplated by the Agreements.
. Such Investor understands and agrees that the certificates evidencing the Shares or the Conversion Shares, or any other securities issued in respect of the Shares or the Conversion Shares upon any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation or similar event, shall bear the following legend (in addition to any legend required by the Rights Agreement or under applicable state securities laws):
“THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE, AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED, ASSIGNED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED UNLESS AND UNTIL REGISTERED UNDER SUCH ACT AND/OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR UNLESS THE COMPANY HAS RECEIVED AN OPINION OF COUNSEL OR OTHER EVIDENCE, REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY AND ITS COUNSEL, THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.”
