• eCommerce – Acquisition of high profit, high cash flow, rapid growth nutritional supplement and beauty product companies

SupplementsA well-positioned, well managed company utilizing merchandising platforms such as Amazon, Walmart, Jet, Groupon & eBay can be highly profitable. Their business model is to outsource virtually every business function except initiation of new and additional products. They are cash flow machines with virtually no assets. This works well for the entrepreneur until its time to sell.

Why NDFC? Typical sources of acquisition financing look for security with a lien on beautymachinery, equipment, accounts receivable, and inventory. These companies have little or none of these assets. With purchase prices ranging from 4 to 5 times EBITDA, millions of dollars needs to be raised to fund the purchase with traditional lenders absent from the field.

real estateNDFC is coupling the purchase of these companies together with high asset value real estate in an innovative manner that can satisfy traditional lending requirements. With this transaction in the pipeline, our innovative approach allows NDFC to facilitate transactions that have eluded most other potential buyers.

• Currency Exchange – Australian FX company acquisition of Lebanese FX company

currency-exchange1Why NDFC? FX is a regulated industry and companies that trade client funds have to exceed minimum net capital requirements. When one company acquires another, the value of the acquired company will not show on the acquiring company’s balance sheet as a qualifying asset. Yet all the debt they incur as part of the acquisition shows as a liability. This can put the acquiring company below their minimum net capital requirements and out of business. NDFC provided the off balance sheet structuring solution to these regulatory restrictions that made it possible to use borrowed money and a seller’s note to fund the acquisition.
