I am looking at a transaction that we are considering an SBA loan for financing. 100% of the equity will transfer; however, the owner wants (and we would be interested in if possible), a 3 year transition period. My understanding is that post-transaction, no owner of the company may remain for longer than 1 year on a 1099 basis. Any thoughts on ways to accomplish a longer transition on an SBA deal or ways you have dealt with this before? TIA
