As a self funded searcher, with a deal just under contract, I have not found the right Equity required of @$500k for an acquisition.
EBITDA is north of $1M but under $2M.
I don't think it is the deal itself or the structure.

Debt is pre approved already.

I know that most have specific criteria regarding margins, industry, multiple etc.

Any suggestions on how to find the best fit for a particular deal?

Or what has worked for other searchers in the past?

I have tried the directory here but the search function does not really allow for a very granular search.
