A Local Investor
National Business Institute of Florida
National Business Institute of Florida, Inc., also known as NBI Truck Driver Training, was acquired by a local investor.
The National Business Institute was operating under a short-term lease that made it unfinanceable for a buyer. In addition, the school’s owner had been an absentee owner for over 20 years so continuity of the school’s experienced and dedicated management team was essential.
We helped the owner renegotiate a lease that would be assignable to a buyer and that would allow the buyer to extend the term on the lease to match the term of any bank debt used to acquire the school.
We also helped the owner talk to the key employees on his management team to include them in the sales process and make sure they were comfortable with the sales process and any potential new owner.
The buyer had tremendous interpersonal skills and an excellent prior business experience including real estate investment background. His wife had experience as part of the senior management team for a large Title IV career college. Together they were the best possible buyers for NBI of Florida.
