Our Investment Process
A mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement will be signed by us and you: This protects us both from disclosing sensitive information. In addition, we do not share financial information during this process with any of our operations partners. This is kept strictly confidential.
Q&A About Financials
Throughout the process we will have questions, but what is important for you is normalizing your earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). Normalization means taking out the expenses that will not continue on after your business is purchased. This will, in-turn, give you a larger EBITDA and subsequently a larger valuation.
Letter of Intent (LOI)
This is how CTG will be providing you an offer. The LOI will outline the price and terms and is non-binding until the final purchase documents are executed.
Once due diligence is completed, legal documents will be drafted for review by you and your lawyer.
Basic Financial Information
This information if for us to better understand your financial performance which will help us in formulating the valuation of your business.
Canada Transfer Visit
This is imperative to give us an idea of your current operation as well as the potential synergies.
Once an LOI is signed we will go through a process of due diligence to fully analyze the business from a financial, operational and legal perspective. During this process a Quality of Earnings (QOE) will be performed by a third-party firm to verify the financials.
Once all legal documents are signed and funds have exchanged hands, the transaction is closed and the partnership begins.
