We’ll Get You There

“Industry knowledge was definitely an advantage to working with Oak Street. The niche you serve shows there’s a lot of gray area but you explained things well.”

– Rick Maldonado

  • How it works:
    • The business obtains the succession loan
    • Loan proceeds are used by incoming ownership to repurchase the existing owner’s stock
    • Equity is redistributed among succession owners
    • Loans can be structured as a one-time event or a multiple-year transaction

  • Business debt restructure loans can be used to:
    • Pay off a bank lien or seller’s note
    • Free up revolving business lines of credit
    • Qualify for additional borrowing
    • Achieve more favorable financing
  • Whatever your business debt structure needs, we’ll get you there.
