I am considering self-funding my search and reserving investor funds for equity contribution in an acquisition.

Does this method have many use-cases (most literature states that investor money is involved during both steps)? If yes, can you offer one?

What are the other considerations as it pertains to "self-funded search, investor participation in deal" that need to be made outside of timing (needing soft commitments prior to deal) and governance (making good choices in structuring the cap table).

Thank you!
