How to Analyze the Purchase of an Existing Business

This is the description from our webinar that was presented in January 2018. Please check back for a modified description. Topics may be updated, but registration is now open.

Lenders are often asked to finance the purchase of an existing business by a new owner.  Participating in this type of financing can be highly risky in some cases. The level of risk depends on a number of factors, including the purchase price for the business, the value of the assets being purchased, and the future potential of the business to generate cashflow.

This program will examine these issues, as well as other important concepts such as non-compete agreements and the role of goodwill. Lenders will gain a greater understanding and comfort level with the methodologies to use when analyzing these types of borrowing requests.
