I am a self funded searcher that is currently looking at merging two businesses together. Business 1 is owned by Owner A. Business 2 is owned by the same Owner A (50%) and Owner B (50%). I am looking to buy in to the newly merged business which would dilute both of their equity, and slowly earn in more equity with performance hurdles over time. Does anyone have experience in structuring a deal like this? Any tips would be appreciated. I plan on using SBA financing for the buy-in portion.
