What is the loan for?

A gross purchase price of £82000 has been agreed to acquire the shares of the company. The purchase will, obviously, be “clean” with no outstanding liabilities, crown or otherwise carrying forward.

Jeremy has £42K in cash to introduce and seeks £40K plus fees by way of loan from the Rebuilding Society membership.

Last 3 years’ accounts for company are attached, but the headline information can be summarised as follows:

Year 7/2018 7/2017 7/2016 7/2015
Sales 179K 125K 136K 158K
GP 133K 59K 88K 107K
NPBT 66K 28K 1K 1K
Exceptionals (18.5K) 0K 0K 0K
Dividends 33K 27K 0K 38K
NCA 23K 1K 1K 1K
NW 23K 1K 2K 2K

Performance is, therefore, fairly consistent, reflecting, to an extent, the lifestyle of the current owners. Jeremy has plans to drive the business forward, per the outline business plan together with cash budget.

Why consider investing?

The company is buying an established business with steady historic financial performance.

The director is confident in his business plan and will provide a personal guarantee. Jeremy’s asset base consists of his residential property valued at £370K.

He has secured mortgages totalling £266K and other unsecured debt amounting to £46800 giving a net value to his PG of £57K.

An unlimited debenture over the company and all its assets which will pick up predominantly equipment, albeit notional in value and a small amount of running trade debt.


This loan will be secured by way of a Personal Guarantee, All Assets Debentures and a Corporate Guarantee.

A PG will be provided by the prospective director, Mr Jeremy Brown. Jeremy has an estimated net worth of £50,000 derived from his ownership of his residential property, a property with an estimated value of £370,000 (based on online estimates) and an estimated £104,000 equity.

First priority all asset debentures will also be taken over the applicant business (the holding company) JPB INVESTMENTS LTD, and Sultip Investments Limited (the operating company). This will pick up the notional amount of assets being purchased (equipment) and any running book debt / trade debt, the leasehold interest and any other assets of the businesses.

For completeness, a corporate guarantee for the loan will also be given by the operating company, Sultip Investments Limited, upon acquisition.
