Program Description

In middle market M&A transactions, securing capital and the best financing terms for an acquisition very often present a unique set of challenges. Regardless of market conditions, buyers and sellers must collaborate to define the most appropriate financing structure often times involving a combination of seller financing, earnouts, third-party financing, and equity. This webinar outlines the process of defining an appropriate financing structure for an M&A transaction. It explores topics such as potential funding sources and structures, debt capacity of acquisition targets, capital stack layers, and best practices on how to structure the various sources of financing to minimize capital costs. Other financing options such as LBOs, SPACs, and partnering with private equity groups are also discussed.
