In exchange for the investment, the contestants offer equity in their business, the percentage of which is also stipulated at the beginning of the pitch.
If the Dragons see potential in the business idea or product, negotiations then take place around the amount of equity on offer, with the contestant having the opportunity to negotiate further, accept any offers, or simply walk away.

This can lead to the contestant receiving the financial backing of more than one Dragon, with the benefit of a broader range of expertise.
However, for this to occur, the contestant usually has to agree to relinquish a larger share in their business than they had first planned. A Dragon who, having heard the pitch, does not wish to invest, must declare themselves "out", implying that they leave the discussion.
