Bill Ziprick, Attorney At Law, ProAdvisor On BizBen.com:

"This last month we have seen considerable activity in the deal area, particularly in the construction and health care arenas. An interesting twist is that potential Buyers have been looking at freeing up significant equity for down payments from their homes (via sales or refinancing), particularly with the home sale market being strong because of the continuing low interest rates. Another important factor in deals has been the handling of PPP Loans, which so many potential Sellers have outstanding. The recent SBA Procedural Notice concerning Changes of Ownership in the PPP loan context provides more guidance, but with challenges, as well. While these requirements are from the SBA, a Seller must still bear in mind that their particular lender may have other criteria for consenting to a potential transaction, above and beyond what the SBA may require. We anticipate this continuing to be a major issue for potential transactions for some months into the future."
