Doing Deals! How I Personally Structure Acquisitions

This week, nick shares a very special training session containing details of some of the deals he has personally completed, as well as the ways and means through which he accomplished them. It’s a chance to get a real insight into the mind of a true deal maker, and a masterclass in how to structure acquisitions correctly.


  • Buying a business is very much like buying a house. When we purchase a house we get a mortgage – therefore using other people’s money. Buying a business can be structured in the same way.
  • When valuing a business, take into account any debts that it may owe, the cost of which must be removed from the buying price. Any remaining capital to be paid as part of the purchase can be taken from the profits from the business itself.
  • Wealth is created by selling businesses. It isn’t created by running businesses. More billionaires have been created by private equity than from any other industry.
  • There are over 1600 businesses closing in America every single day because there is no succession plan. Owners who retire have no plan for post-retirement, and so many businesses close when the time comes, even though they are profitable.


‘You are going to build significant wealth from business acquisitions’

‘None of this is your own cash, whatsoever’

‘The huge payday is when you sell the business in the future’

‘So much better to buy a good profitable business than to try and start one up yourself’
