$700k EBITDA acquisition with No Money Down - How this Village Wellth customer pulled this off

blog banner

Our friends at Acquiring Minds did a podcast with Andrew Stordeur who bought at 25-year-old outdoor furniture manufacturer.

The podcast spends a lot of time on the fact that Andrew, a Canadian in Calgary, not only had no problem accessing financing from banks in Canada to do this deal.He got great terms. Andrew had to use very little of his own money to buy a business doing $700k in EBITDA. You'll hear, a big part of the advantageous terms he secured from the banks was based on the fact that the seller was willing to finance a big piece of the deal: in the 35% range.

Topics in Andrew’s interview:

  • Taking a startup to an IPO
  • Competition in the wood furniture space
  • Financing without the SBA
  • Advice for Canadian searchers
  • Getting a 35% seller note
  • His 100% financed deal
  • His plan to increase direct-to-consumer sales
  • Being the sole breadwinner for a family of 6
  • Deciding not to buy with a partner
  • How his company ships faster than Amazon
