Does anyone have any direct experience executing this type of transaction? I am exploring the art of the possible and while I am guessing that this is a rather atypical strategy for traditional search funds, I wonder if structured equity investors or lenders are open to this idea.
An illustrative example would be acquiring a manufacturer of propane tanks in the U.S., moving the manufacturing process somewhere near the border in Mexico (leverage IMMEX program), and keeping all administrative and sales functions in the U.S.
Again, I am just exploring out-of-the-box ideas and I am certainly not oblivious to the challenges associated with this particular strategy, but still curious whether someone has attempted or successfully executed this type of transaction before.
Thank you in advance for any constructive feedback and advice.
