With $10M avaliable, why can't I find the right business to buy?

I am blessed to have investors lined up who will provide me with up to $10M (more if profit justifiable) to acquire the right manufacturing business. Granted, we need to see steady growth over the last 3yrs (& year to date) in sales & profits which is hard to find during this economy. And there are some other things we look for to help reduce the risk of capital (years in biz, EBITDA of at least $1M), but certainly nothing I'd deem to be major. I would have thought that sellers would be standing in line for a multi-million dollar all-cash retirement, but it's just not so. Could be that many are waiting for the economy (& their biz) to turnaround so they can collect a grander "parachute," but.......any suggestions?

Dan,
I am the owner of a Specialty Construction company that services Southern California. My track record shows the potential for the company. I'm limited to projects that I can aquire by my lack of bonding capacity. 2005 was my startup year with $0 startup funds. Gross sales that year were about $1m Followed by the succeeding years with $3.5m, and the $7m. I completed a project in 2009 that the value of my scope of work was $34M. It would have generated $6m in profit, but I was not in a strong enough financial position to acquire the job without giving most of it to the General Contractor and owner. I'm optimistic for the future with several large projects that I'm in negotiations for, but would be in a stronger position with a financial backer/partner. I would also entertain the idea of selling out my position and staying on to run and develop the company. I'm too young to retire and enjoy what I do. There is tremendous potential in this field to expand into project development. If this interests you and you would like to talk further, give me a call.

I have heard that energy sector is very attractive in some european countries, where they say you need to buy a license, do the investment and start producing energy where your buyer is the government.
