45 Days and Counting!

This afternoon, I dropped by the 2009 M&A Business Conference for the Association of Corporate Growth's Los Angeles chapter. Both the lobby and the Capital Connection room were buzzing with activity.

The Capital Connection room was filled with representatives of over 100 private equity firms with one lender and one commercial real estate sale-leaseback firm thrown in for good measure. The room was packed with deal makers trying to figure out how to get a piece of the $400 billion of equity overhang that everyone keeps talking about!

Spoke to a few of the lenders milling about and each one confirmed the same. If you've got a business loan that needs to be funded by year end, you need to submit the deal to a lender (preferably with a complete due diligence package) by Halloween. After that, there's a reduced likelihood the deal could close by New Year's Eve.

Need help finding the right lender or telling your story the right way for your California business? Read "Matchmaking for Business Loans" and give me a call!
