FEES AND EQUITY PARTICIPATION
The Commitment Fee is assessed according to the sales or EBITDA size of your target acquisition. If the EBITDA Size would produce a higher Commitment and Success Fees than would the Sales Size, then the EBITDA Size is used to determine the Commitment Fee.
|Sale Size||EBITDA Size||Commitment Fee||Success Fee (Paid by Acquired Company)|
|Under $20,000,000||Under $3,000,000||$35,000||$40,000|
|$20,000,000 to $49,999,999||$3,000,000 to $7,499,999||$75,000||$75,000|
|$50,000,000 and up||$7,500,000 and up||$150,000||$150,000|
Often, surplus cash at or shortly after the close, is created as result of the structure and financing of the acquisition. That surplus cash is subject to distribution to the parties pro rata to their equity percentage.
Compensation to you from operations of the acquired business over and above an agreed upon base salary results in Consulting Fee compensation payable to Gordon and his designees in an amount pro rata to their ownership percentage of the business multiplied by amount of compensation to you over and above your base salary.
Reasons for Commitment Fee
Entrepreneurs instinctively want to conserve cash. So we are frequently asked if the Commitment Fee can be reduced, spread out over time or waived. Respectfully we decline these requests. Experience has shown us that it has to be worthwhile for some extraordinarily successful people to give up other opportunities and put their time, talent and resources behind you. Before investing in you, we need a demonstration of:
- Your Commitment
- Your Belief in Yourself
- Your Values & Priorities
- Your Resourcefulness
If you are not ready, willing and able to invest in yourself, how can you ask others to invest 10’s of thousands of dollars of their time & resources to put you in business?
We also incur out-of-pocket expenses of supporting your progress that must be covered. Large expenses are referred on to you for your approval and payment prior to incurring them (airline tickets, hotels etc.). Small or general expenses (phone calls, data charges, meals, local mileage etc.) we cover ourselves.
We make a commitment to provide you with a high level of personalized service, take the risk of success right along with you where our win is in our share of the equity split and cash distributions from the acquired company.
Equity Splits of the acquired company vary according the needs of each transaction and the resources required of Gordon and his team. The default split is 80% to you or your designees and 20% to Gordon or his designees. There are situations which provide for a different split but they are rare and tend to occur with acquisitions of businesses in a field that Gordon is actively making acquisitions to build companies that he already owns. This would usually come to light and be addressed as a part of the application process.
In determining your desire for and your commitment to the acquisition of your company, it is advised that you give careful thought to the total cash outlays that may be required.
Typical Pre-Close Out-of-Pocket Expense for an Acquisition Based on Annual Sale Size
IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: Some of our PIBA partners can handle these expense items with relative ease. For others, it may represent a great sacrifice. We are making you aware of these expense items in the table below so that you may consider them prior to submitting your Application and so you are prepared when they arise.
Many of these expenses can be negotiated lower, paid for all or in part out of the acquisition financing, paid for with equity in the buying entity in lieu of all or a portion of the fees or covered by an investor. We recommend that you do not participate in PIBA unless you already have these funds available to you or you can see yourself handing them using one or more of these methods.
These expenses, to the extent they occur, are the responsibility of the applicant.
|Expense Item||Annual Sales of $10 Million||Annual Sales of $25 Million||Annual Sales of $50 Million||Annual Sales of $100 Million|
|Appraisals (land, equip., inventory, etc.)||$6,000||$8,500||$17,500||$35,000|
|Quality of Earnings Report from CPA||$35,000||$45,000||$75,000||$95,000|
|Agreements by Attorney||$20,000||$35,000||$50,000||$75,000|
Upon a successful closing, the above expense items remaining owed to the various service providers and any other closing cost will be paid from the acquisition financing. To the maximum extent possible, any of these expenses advanced by the applicant prior the close will be a priority for reimbursement either from the proceeds of the acquisition financing or from early positive cash flow developed from the acquired company.
