Buying a business

Acquiring an existing business could drive your continued success but it also poses significant risks. You can count on us and our expertise to eliminate those risks. Whether you’re looking to acquire an existing business or conduct a Management buyout (MBO), we’ll provide consultation services to help evaluate the business strengths and weaknesses. We advise you on whether to buy shares or the assets of the business so that you benefit most in the long term.
We offer services in the following areas:

  • Negotiating transactions
  • Securing financing
  • Tax planning
  • Due diligence
  • Business plans and forecasts
  • Review of contracts and agreements

We can also assist you with financing the acquisition. The financing solutions we provide are customized to fit your needs and can cover MBOs, franchise, or other business acquisitions.

Examples of financing options include:

  • Long term financing and, depending on your situation, the possibility of subordinate financing
  • Flexible repayment schedules
  • Possible deferred principal payments
  • Progressive or seasonal repayment options tailored to your business cash flow
  • Guaranteed term that cannot be recalled without due cause
  • Your choice of floating or fixed interest rate
  • Fast-Track, no penalty repayment options up to 15% remaining balance per year

First we assess your needs, resources, and project viability in order to get the customized financing that fits your business. Then our team of professionals will help establish the value of a business, plan and negotiate a transaction and minimize the tax impacts of your acquisition.
