BE FINANCIALLY FLEXIBLE THROUGH YOUR BUYOUT, MERGER OR ACQUISITION

Navigating the complexities of acquiring an existing business can be demanding. You shouldn’t have to worry about financial flexibility or the task of securing funds as well.

The acquisition and transition to new ownership can involve many day-to-day details, legal agreements, contracts, leases, dealing with the employees and customers, goods or services production, and many others.

Our buyout and acquisition finance facilities are based on the value of the assets, the accounts receivable, inventory, machinery, and equipment. We do not rely on financial covenants that may constrain your business’s flexibility. We rely on your expertise and the value of your assets.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Leveraged Buyout Financing (LBO)?

Leveraged Buyout Financing (LBO) is a strategy where a company is acquired using a significant amount of borrowed money to meet the cost of acquisition. The assets of the company being acquired are used as collateral for the loans, along with the assets of the acquiring company.

In a typical LBO, the acquiring company (often a private equity firm) uses its own assets as well as the assets of the target company to secure loans. The borrowed money is generally used to pay for a large portion of the purchase price. The acquiring company’s goal is to eventually sell the target company or to take it public in order to repay the loans and earn a return on their initial investment.

What is Management Buyout Financing (MBO)?

A Management Buyout (MBO) is a type of acquisition where the company’s existing management team acquires a large part or all of the company. Financing for an MBO is typically secured by the assets of the company, similar to a Leveraged Buyout (LBO).

In an MBO, the management team pools resources to acquire the business because they believe in its potential and are willing to invest their own money. They might also seek financing from external sources to complete the purchase.

What is the typical LBO financing structure?

Although leveraged buyout structures can vary, they typically use a high debt/equity ratio to leverage your company’s assets.

A typical Leveraged Buyout (LBO) financing structure is made up of several layers of financing, each representing a different level of risk and return.

How does acquisition financing work?

When acquiring a business, you need to consider how much money is required to complete the acquisition, as well as the funding necessary to support the ongoing operations. Acquisition financing will enable you to leverage the assets or cash flow of the target company, so you can finance the acquisition. Acquisition financing is often structured with a mix of debt, equity and even financing from the vendor via a balance of sale or vendor take back note.

What is the typical acquisition financing timeline?

Every acquisition financing process is distinct and doesn’t follow a standard timeline due to the unique nature of each transaction. Nonetheless, eCapital is committed to collaborating with you and your consultants to keep the procedure on course. In certain situations, we’ve managed to finalize credit facilities for mergers and acquisitions in less than a month.

What are LBO financing rates & fees?

The costs and rates associated with Leveraged Buyout (LBO) financing can differ significantly between transactions. Typically, the rates for LBO financing are determined by the risk level, the choice of lender, and the assets you intend to utilize as collateral.
