After searching since September of last year, I caught a huge break and found a great business in the electrical distributor field. I was able to beat out a total of 3 other competing offers. Without going too deep, it's a highly profitable "boring" business mostly like Ruback and Yudoff suggested in buying. Partial due diligence was done before the LOI was signed. So far I have not seen any red flags. Besides, the normal financial, inventory, legal, regulatory, lease, etc... due diligence, should I look for anything else? I hope to get the deal done in 60 days.

On another note, this business is valued at around $2.5m with an SDE of around $1M. I can afford and plan on getting an SBA loan however, what would be the advantage of using PE or investor capital to acquire the company?
