Loans for Business Acquisitions

Business acquisitions typically involve the purchase of either the stock shares or assets of an existing business. Stock acquisitions typically involve the purchase of the existing owner’s stock shares of a business by a new, prospective owner. In an asset purchase, the new prospective owner will form a new entity to purchase certain assets (e.g. equipment, customer lists, trade name, goodwill) of the existing entity.
The time and energy spent negotiating a business acquisition is significant and the advice of professionals (e.g. attorney, accountant) should be sought. In most cases a third party business valuation is required. The maximum loan term for business acquisition financing is 10 years.
