Financing options to help you buy a business

Purchase an existing business or franchise even if you don’t have the capital to buy it outright.

How M&T can help you realize your dream of business ownership

If your plan is to buy an existing company, we can structure a loan specific to business acquisition. You can have the power to buy a business while conserving liquidity so that you can fund operations. Whether it’s business term loans, lines of credit or Small Business Administration loans, there is an ideal lending option for your specific needs.

Be prepared to succeed

An experienced M&T Business Lending Specialist will guide you through the application process. We can advise you on creating a business plan that shows you have a viable idea. If you haven’t previously owned a business, you may need to assemble personal credit information. We can help you put your best foot forward.
