Hey SFers!

I'm exploring the option of doing a self-funded search. Non-residents don't have access to SBA loans, so our options for raising money are more limited. I'd love to know what the usual approach is for these scenarios (non-residents making an acquisition in the US), namely:
- Do these searchers tend to go for traditional searches, finding less obstacles in doing so?
- Can they raise senior debt on these, somewhat small (sub-$2M EBITDA), deals? If so, how do terms compare to conventional SBA?

Any info on this front would be super useful. Thanks! :)
