Is there a general rule of thumb for buyout terms? What percentage is generally upfront? How much is the seller note? How much is earn out?
I understand one should max it out, but still curious what you can use as argument as general market practice?
Let's say 100 is the equity value,
50 is upfront
25 is seller note
25 is earnout?
Earnout - Seller note - Equity proportion
