What specific things will we need from you to evaluate a loan request? Remember the 4 types of loan requests we receive –Practice Acquisition –Start up –Expansion –Refinance Depending on what type of request, will determine what we would ask for Lets just use the example we used earlier of a practice acquisition. What would we need and why?
What the bank needs and WHY… Three years personal tax returns Personal Financial Statement Resume Three years business tax returns Interim P/L and Balance sheet on business Review Historical Income Evaluate personal assets/liabilities Understand experience/leadership Historical repayment ability Current operations of practice
You feel good about the numbers But what about….. The Transition? You see positive things, you like the location, but now its time to take a deeper look Demographics –What is happening in the neighborhood? –Competitors, who, how close, how aggressive? Existing Staff Operating Margins - Typically well managed practices run about 35% General Dentist - In other words – Efficiency of the practice. Existing Problems or benefits will become YOURS.
Be prepared to walk away You are buying, or starting your future and building an asset. You need to justify the price with numbers and be willing to walk away if it is too high. We see emotions – practices that dentists grew up in, but the selling dentist is asking too much. They buy the practice and fail because they have too much debt and not enough revenue no matter HOW hard they work. Location is great, but Lease terms are too expensive BE PATIENT. Sometimes the best deal is the one you didn’t do.
What will benefited the business from this point on… High visibility, physical and online. Positive energy, be a leader. Maximize the areas of revenue that generate the most profit. Understand your P/L and B/S. Find a financial coach. Don’t suggest, sell, if you believe in it! Locate in the best demographic areas: high income, low unemployment, rapid growth, and few competitors.
What should matter to you right now? Credit Score –Make your payments, that means more than the AMOUNT you owe Business Acumen –Educate yourself on the side, mentors, build management skills Build your people skills –You are in the people business OPTIMISM!!! YOU CAN OWN A BUSINESS!
