I don't know what you are trying to achieve by searching distressed businesses, Because distressed
properties I have heard but not distressed businessses. In todays economy you need not look farther
as very few businesses aresmoothly running most of them are having a rough ride. my suggestion to you is that look for business in which you are expert meaning thereby that is your cup of tea otherwise
this will be loosing proposition in most cases exceptions are there if the business is being sold for divorce reason or partnership dissolution or seller is relocating to another state then it makes sense otherwise not.

Best way would be to track loacl bankrupcty courts as well as talk to local lenders. We have done a fair amount of deals in that space and most of the business comes from existing clients and banks who r looking to cut exposure. for financing options for buying distressed companies check out
