Business Loan - Business Acquisition

Purpose

Business acquisition loans are specially structured to fund the acquisition of a new business with a trading history of at least three years. These loans can be used for to pay for due diligence investigation and acquire the business goodwill, stock plant & equipment and other trading assets

Benefits

Opportunity to buy a mature or emerging independent business with high earnings potential. If security is not required, business loans can be settled in less than seven days.

Security

Depending on the size of the loan and the lender, the loan may be unsecured or secured. If security is required which is likely for large amounts, this may include real estate, accounts receivable, stock, plant & equipment, and goodwill, in which case the lender will register appropriate security interests over those assets. If the amount borrowed is more than 80% of the value of security offered, lenders may require Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance which essentially protects them in case of default. This will be an additional cost to the borrower. This means, if the borrower defaults in their repayments and cannot repay the amount owing the lender may compel them to sell the business and the real estate security to settle the debt in full and also call on any personal guarantees provided to support the loan.

Repayment terms

The borrower will be required to pay interest at a fixed or variable rate or a mix of the two on the principal outstanding and any agreed upfront, ongoing and exit charges. Business loans are flexible and can be repaid over a short or long term. Short-term loans can be for 3 months to 2 years and long-term loans can be for many years.
