1. I am looking for HVAC businesses in Major Texas Markets - Primarily Houston, Secondarily, Austin. $4-6M in Total value to max out the SBA financing. I have a partner with an HVAC license. Anyone have an idea of who I should be reaching out to?

    2) I met a alumni of my University and they said they have a off market deal and good relationship with the seller (the two partners are older and looking to exit) - he proposed bringing the deal to me and my partner but he wants 40% of the business and will provide that amount of equity as well. That seems too rich and curious on how I could potentially approach this offer and find a better structure.
