There comes a time for some businesses when a major injection of finance will be needed; something that goes beyond the regular squeeze on cash flow and overdraft problems experienced by many.
Often it is signaled by a shortfall in working capital preventing the business from meeting growth opportunities.
The solutions are varied and might include:
> additional lending from traditional sources such as a bank and alternative sources, such as retail bonds,
> bringing in new external investors such as venture capitalists ,
> merger or joint venture
> business sale to management team, business angels…. or a combination of the two,
> partial business sale, bringing additional funds and management time to focus on core activities
