Investment Opportunity

I have the opportunity to buy a business via an earn out. On paper it looks like a real winner. It is a seven year old LLC that designs and builds training equipment. Customers include the federal government, many law enforcement agencies etc. The company has patents and substantial assets.

Growth has been upward and explosive. The EBITDA for 2008 was close to $400k. For 2009 those figures will be down substantially but that is because the company is investing in huge new facilities. Earnings (EBITDA) for 2010 are projected to be $1.1 million and those projections actually look reasonably conservative. This company could easily be earning $10 million a year (clearing - not grossing) by 2020.

I need to raise $150k. For that $150k I am willing to sell 20% of my equity. That would be worth roughly $80k a year based on 2008's earnings or $200k based on next years projections. Substantial yearly increases look very plausible. If interested, please email me at shane@CTek-Medi

Mark: Central Florida.

Brian: I tried and I got the impression there was very little legimate activity. It seemed mostly to be a good way to get contact information on people so they could be sold something.

Shane: I have made multiple purchases via earn out deals in my previous business. It's a great way to make a purchase as it can offer substantial benefits to the buyer while offering various advantages to the seller. This sounds like a great opportunity for you. Where is the business located?
