Acquisition Financing

Buying a Business?

Expert acquisition financing solutions for middle market companies.

Finding success when it comes to sourcing the right capital partner for financing your acquisition requires a knack for knowing what questions to ask and which groups to solicit. At Acquisition.net we source the right capital, designed to maximize return on investment.

CORPORATE DEBT

We provide clear solutions for senior, subordinated, mezzanine and other forms of asset-based lending for clients seeking a solution for their acquisition financing needs. In typical fashion, most deals include some mix of both debt and equity with the vast majority being sourced from debt. We work with lenders and issuers to help source the right mix of both.

PRIVATE EQUITY

A myriad of options exist for sourcing private equity investment, particularly if your company is profitable and growing. Private equity groups, family offices and other sophisticated investors can provide either majority and minority interests in the right business. We help to ensure both the issuer and investor get the best deal possible.

MEZZANINE & UNITRANCHE FUNDING

Mezzanine, unitranche and other subordinated debt structures are used often in financing acquisitions, particularly those that lack the tangible assets required by many senior lenders in a deal. We help source the right mix of non-bank, secondary and tertiary debt solutions to finance your next acquisition.

ALTERNATIVE FINANCING

Additional less known, but alternative lending structures exist for companies seeking solutions to their acquisition financing needs. These include ESOPs mixed with debt and other specialized asset lease-back structures. We provide solutions across the value chain.

We source the right capital financing solutions for both buyers and sellers.

Being able to identify valuable opportunities worth investing in can be a challenge, when much of the deal flow in privately owned companies isn’t readily accessible. This challenge limits the number of deals PE firms complete or are even aware of.

We make it possible for private equity firms to maximize their investment opportunities by digging deeper than what limiting strategies – like participating in broad auctions – offers. We source new portfolio company opportunities, as well as add-on opportunities, for existing portfolio companies.

Our experience spans nearly every niche and industry. The strategy we employ to identify investment opportunities is multifaceted. While traditional methods of prospecting (phone calls, for example) are still effective, our most valuable resource is our network of professionals (including accounting firms, attorneys, consultants, brokers, sell-side intermediaries and investment bankers).

Over time, our network of professionals has come to view Acquisition.net as a valued source for discreetly presenting high-caliber qualified buyers.

Raising Capital for Acquisitions

Combining tried and true strategies with consistent execution, Acquisition.net is uniquely outfitted to help our clients – within a number of key niches – raise the capital they need. Regardless of what stage your business is in – from startup to growth, recapitalization, shareholder liquidity and full-management buyouts – we’ll construct a customized strategy that will yield your desired results.

Our close relationship with venture capitalizes, private equity firms, buy-out investors and others give us the leverage we need to match our clients with a capital lender well-suited for their needs and who’ll share in their goal of consistent growth and long-term success.

Who we work with?

Acquisition.net has extensive experience helping young businesses in search of 1st or 2nd-rounds of capital, as well as middle-market ventures looking for financing from PE firms/funds and venture capital.

What We Do

We serve a variety of roles as we look to raise capital for our clients. Our experience allows us to effectively serve as CFOs, VPs of Finance, and Directors, as we develop campaigns that identify and target accredited investors, and review and refine any financing plans (if necessary).

By ensuring that a mutually beneficial agreement (between investor and business owner) is established, we greatly minimize the risks typically associated with raising capital.

We stand alongside our clients every step of the way as they look to create the level of momentum necessary to guarantee success.
