Buying An Early Education Company - Mergers and Acquisitions

Are you having trouble finding good childcare centers and schools to purchase? When you find a decent center or school, do you find it nearly impossible to get the due diligence materials you need? When you’re lucky enough to get the first two pieces of the puzzle, is it then a hassle to get the kind of financing terms you want? You’re not alone. These circumstances are very normal within the industry. The BFS® team solved these problems many years ago.

Here’s how we can help you:

1.  FINDING GOOD CHILDCARE CENTERS AND SCHOOLS TO PURCHASE: You may have several means of searching for companies to acquire including scouring the listings on line, and talking with various owners and brokers. These are certainly reasonable practices, but it doesn’t have to be that much work. You can click on this link, spend about three minutes to register with BFS® and have available centers and schools emailed directly to you when they exist in the area(s) that you choose. You will know about available centers and schools the day they enter the market. There is no avalanche of unwanted emails, and the emails you receive are designed to allow you to determine your interest level in less than two minutes—no exaggeration. Our database includes almost every licensed early education school or center in the United States. At BFS®, we are well aware that the buyers of our selling clients' companies have to be treated fairly if we want you to return and buy companies from our future selling clients. Check anywhere...we are a trustworthy resource for buyers.

2.  DUE DILIGENCE MATERIALS: Over our 25+ year history many buyers have returned to buy multiple centers and schools from BFS®. When asked why, the most popular answer is… “…because I get what I pay for…” Born out of an investment banking career, we understand the need for an organized, verifiable due diligence portfolio. Valuations from the real estate to the business component to the FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment) are handled by the proper licensed professionals. The information provided by these professionals is included in the BFS® portfolio made available to qualified buyers.

3.  FINANCING: Whether you have your own lender or not, the resources of BFS® can help you ensure that you are getting the best financing terms available for your acquisition or other projects. Our team will typically bring 15 to as many as 25 banks to compete for your loan. It is very normal to receive multiple offers (term sheets) from the banks. SBA loans routinely require as little as 10% down. If you would like more detailed information about financing, click on the “Financing” tab above or click here.
