Investment Amount: How much is being raised.
Pre-Money Valuation: What the business is worth before the investment. The pre-money valuation can also appear in the “Price Per Share” section.
Price Per Share: The price per share is calculated by dividing the agreed on pre-money valuation by the total number of shares outstanding in the startup. The share price calculation is where the term “fully diluted” shares outstanding comes into play.The term “Fully diluted” means the options pool and other forms of stock such as warrants must be included in the share total.
