Duration of the fund requirement : It is always healthy to retire costly funds and replace with low cost of finance funds. Hence the promoter needs to decide based on his application of funds as well as the duration he needs this fund for.
Exit strategy for the investor : At each stage of growth the company needs fresh investments and investors. Every new quantum of funds infused in the company increases the valuation of the company. An old investor would prefer exit rather than sticking on due to various reasons and his risk apetite. A new investor on the other hand would prefer getting a better equity share and that calls for having exit plan for every investor taking care of his profit booking.
