Leveraged Buyouts for Small Businesses
What is a leveraged buyout? Selling a small business can be extremely difficult, as the prospect pool for potential buyers in that particular niche is going to be small. Finding financing for a small business is challenging, as well, due to banks typically wanting to deal with larger transactions. Even if a potential buyer is found, they may be wary of any debt or other operational red flags that may cause them to have to come up with a lot of cash in the acquisition phase of the transaction. This is where a leveraged buyout might come in to play.
