Acquire other businesses and expand your activities

You have an established business; now it’s time to expand into new products and territories. Additional capital will help you to complete an acquisition. With our loans – including the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), provided by our partner, Growth Lending – your firm can scale faster.

Fund an acquisition

It takes a few meetings and around four to six weeks to complete a BOOST&Co loan. If your business has been affected by Covid-19, you could also be eligible for a CBILS loan from our partner, Growth Lending. These can be completed in as little as two weeks. Here’s the process:

You have an established business and want to increase your speed of expansion by buying another. BOOST&Co can support you via acquisition finance, helping to fund a growth strategy based on mergers and acquisitions without equity dilution.

We can discuss an acquisition loan when the price is clear, the seller is willing and you have a merger plan to realise the value of your investment. Once you have acquisition finance in place, you can respond quickly when new opportunities arise. These loans are ideal for acquisition growth strategies, because they can be drawn down over time.

BOOST&Co is proud to support UK SMEs where traditional banks cannot, and our experience in working with fast-growing businesses means that we understand the unprecedented challenges that companies face in the wake of Covid-19.

This is why we have joined forces with Growth Lending, an accredited provider of the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme. We continue to support growing companies with BOOST&Co’s term loans, but we can also help ambitious firms that are ready to expand, through government-backed CBILS loans from our partner, Growth Lending.

This product is ideally suited to businesses that want to expand through mergers and acquisitions. CBILS loans are not only for companies that need to survive – they are also for firms that have identified opportunities to thrive.

CBILS can help SMEs that have lost revenue and had their cashflow disrupted as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. This initiative was created to provide financial support for smaller businesses during the coronavirus pandemic. It is aimed at companies with a turnover of less than £45m. Funding is not provided by the government directly but by accredited lenders, and borrowers will be fully liable for the debt. Under the scheme, the government will pay the interest and fees of the facilities for the first 12 months.
