Do You Know The Surprising Secret To Buying A Company ?

Properly structured business acquisition financing loans are critical to success in buying a company or business in Canada. As a business owner and financial mgr your goal is to pay the right price and merge that with the financing you need to make your transaction work .

In some cases you might even be executing a merger or even buying a strategic partner or competitor ; in any case finance is key .

A small business acquisition loan is of course outside those large corporations , public and otherwise in Canada , that have the talent and corporate financing that they need. It’s the small and medium sized sector that we’re focusing on . Those Bay street boys have all the help they need. But in any case a business financing advisor is usually key to closing your deal .

Many business owners and their financial mgrs often try to ‘ go it alone’. finding later that road is a painful and expensive one, and one that burns some bridges along the way . So how can a qualified business finance advisor help you ?

There are several key areas that an experienced intermediary might assist you in . They include, but are not limited to:

Helping you develop criteria for your decision

Reviewing and assessing all financial info that is available

Possible assistance in pricing and valuation


Most important ? Structuring a small business acquisition loan that makes sense based on assets and cash flow. And business loan rates are important to the overall financing strategy.

Being proactive and have a key sense of timing is always key, coupled with the quality of your financing package – one that will impress either a bank or commercial lender .

What can the business owner or manager expect to pay when it comes to a Success fee or work fees? In the SME sector we suggest a nominal but reasonable work fee and a Success fee in the 1-3% range depending on the complexity of the deal.

In many cases the work fee or ‘ retainer’ as many seem to prefer to call it can easily be negotiated to be deducted from the final Success fee.

It is also advantageous to work with someone who has a sense of your industry – that is important and has value .

In many cases if you have found the ‘ right deal ‘ , but without proper financing there is of course ‘ no deal ‘.

The amount of debt and cash flow financing depends on several key factors that include sales and cash flow history, quality of assets, and prospects for growth . The amount of capital the buyer and put into the transaction is key , as well as business background experience of owners and mgrs in the business.

Seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business financing advisor
with a track record of success who can help you buy and finance that company or acquisition.
