Hi everyone, I'm working on a very interesting deal that is a very good fit for my search. It checks nearly all the boxes and diligence has gone great with one exception. All along I have been trying to wrap my head around supply chain issues with a key supplier. Customers need their product desperately and the lead times are getting key accounts frustrated. This is affecting our competition as well. The business did not have this issue before the pandemic and they offered up a meeting with their supplier to discuss the situation. I'm hoping they tell me that over time this situation will remedy itself.

We are getting closer to closing, but this is an unknown I am going to have to live with. I'm curious if any other searchers out there are dealing with this supply chain issue and if there are any creative ways to mitigate this risk.
