Funders Update : Small Cash Flow Loans for MBO / MBI / Acquisitions

Small Cash Flow Loans for MBOs and Acquisitions

Small Cash Flow Loans for MBO / MBI / Acquisitions

At Sterling Commercial Finance, we constantly seek innovative and alternative finance providers for our clients.

We see many small acquisitions or MBOs struggle to complete as there just isn’t enough funding to “bridge the gap.”  Clients may have sorted personal funds, ABL lending, and deferred consideration to do a deal, but often, that’s not quite enough.

In most cases, the bank won’t help. Indeed, sometimes, they compound the problem by wanting their CBILS loan repaid. How inconvenient!

Algorithm lenders won’t assist as they don’t fund MBOs. What if you had a loan provider keen on MBOs and willing to do a small cash-flow loan? This could be the layer of funding to make the difference.

One of our panel funders is now offering such a facility.

On the face of it, this may seem expensive (but compared to what ?) Unlike larger cash flow lenders, there is no external legal fees or third party due diligence.


  • Debenture, often taken behind primary lenders.
  • Personal Guarantee taken for only 25% of the loan amount
