The lender's Credit Memorandum for Tier 3 loans must include (at a minimum) the items required for Tier 1 and Tier 2 loans plus the following:
For a change of ownership, a business valuation that supports the purchase price based on generally accepted valuation methods used for the industry in which the business operates.
Assets other than cash
Lenders must carefully evaluate the value of assets other than cash that are injected by owners or principals.  Therefore, an appraisal or other valuation by an independent third party is recommended.
Other Fixed Assets
If the valuation of fixed assets is greater than their depreciated value, an independent appraisal must be obtained to support the higher valuation.
For loans greater than $350,000 or if there is a close relationship between the buyer and seller, the lender must obtain an independent business valuation from a qualified source.  A "qualified source" is an individual who regularly receives compensation for business valuations and is accredited by a recognized organization.
