Living Lighting Newmarket
I wanted to be in an ownership position rather than just manage the company. BDC had confidence in us and came through with the financing we needed. It was a seamless and effortless experience!
The CEO and co-owner had worked as a manager in the store and was looking to buy the business from the former owners who were retiring. Given that he was purchasing inventory and goodwill rather than hard assets, he needed to partner with a financial institution that would be receptive to providing a loan.
Based on the owner’s excellent credit record, ability to invest in the business and proven management capabilities, BDC’s financial experts provided financing with flexible terms in order to purchase the business and maintain vital cash in the company.
- Increased control over company’s destiny
- Grew sales significantly
- Preserved cash in the business to invest in growth opportunities
