It’s a bloody death spiral - sell! That seems to be the standard response to an announcement that an AIM company has raised cash via a structured financing plan rather than a, often deeply discounted, placing. But that "truism" is a falsehood. Some structured financings are death spirals, bad news for all bar the provider. Others, however, are put together in a way that only work if the share price rises. And that, surely, has to be better than a deeply discounted placing to bucket shop flippers?
