HOW MUCH LEVERAGE IS TYPICALLY DEPLOYED IN SEARCH FUND TRANSACTIONS?

Dear all,

Are there any statistics on the use of leverage in search fund transactions?

For example:
* How much of the purchase price is financed via debt?
* What are the typical debt/equity and debt/EBITDA ratios before and after the transaction?
* What are the obstacles to deploy debt in search fund transactions?
* Are there any significant differences between geographies?

Looking forward to the feedback!

Kind regards,
Jens
