Live Oak Bank offers government contract acquisition financing and will guide you through the loan process to mitigate potential risks and ensure a successful transition. By acquiring another government contracting firm, your business will grow from the acquired contracts that produce new revenue streams. Government contractor acquisitions may also help you gain the qualifications needed to win large contracts and increase your profits exponentially.

Live Oak’s government contracting experts understand why financing is needed to help small businesses grow inorganically through government contractor acquisitions. Contractors can speed up the acquisition process by gaining past performance by leveraging set-asides. In addition, the working capital the government contracting firm already has will be rolled into the acquisition providing existing revenues for a new buyer.


There’s no better way to get started than to have your required documentation on hand. Three years of personal and business tax returns, personal financial statement, personal resume, and business plan are some of the documents you’ll need.


When you’re ready to work with one of our loan experts, expect a conversation devoted to your contract including details on your loan, your background and the financing options that we have to offer. Your loan specialist will then walk you through the application process.


Once your application is received, our team will run analyze your financials. Next, the loan officer will issue a proposal to you with rates, terms and any collateral requirements. We understand that there’s not a one size fits all and are here to help you better understand your options to grow your small business.
