Buying an Oilfield Services Company
Buying a company with products or services that complement yours is a good way to grow your business. Another option is to merge products or services with a competitor to produce better products or services. Both scenarios may sound great, but many forget to think about other parts of the equation because they're excited about the possibilities.
Buying a business requires thinking about the following:
- Employees: What will you do about overlapping positions? Are you prepared to undergo reorganization? It may work for a short-term to think of the bought company as a separate company. However, the company will perform more efficiently when reorganizing it.
- Buildings and leasing: Would it be a better idea to postpone the buyout to match the time when the lease ends? What will you do about the bought company's buildings and leasing agreements?
- Culture: No two company cultures are the same. Both companies will need to prepare for a culture change and a new way of working.
When you buy a company that isn't a competitor, you may be able to keep doing things the same way. However, you'll have a better chance of optimizing both companies' resources when you combine them.
How Capital Solutions Helps Oilfield Companies
To ensure you get the working capital you need before, during and after the buy/sell, Capital Solutions Bancorp Oilfield Services provides you with a line of credit and acts as a conduit for installation payments. This assures the seller that those installments will come through.
Advantages of Working with Capital Solutions
The buyer can concentrate on growing and improving the business instead of dealing with cash flow problems. This set up will put the financing in place to help the company grow while paying the seller. It also saves time for the buyer who won't have to waste time looking for banks only to find out they won't approve of a line of credit. Furthermore, personal assets don't come to play.
The seller will take comfort knowing that payments will come in as expected.
Growing your business by buying a company is exciting. However, many people have the best intentions in starting something, but they struggle to finish because it takes more work than expected. If you accept it will take time and energy to make it happen, then rewards will follow. We help make the financial part easier on you.

What Our Clients Are Saying
- Brenda and Mark Neufeld,
In our very first conversation I noticed that you not only understood our situation, but also the Oil & Gas trade. Capital Solutions has been an invaluable help... We have grown our business exponentially thanks to you. I can now probably qualify for a traditional line of credit (...but I'm not sure I want to).
B.N.M. Piloting Services
- Keri Gray,
The HUGE difference I found since we are working with you... is in the day-to-day life... Since Capital Solutions is funding us there is no "fear"... when I talk to a vendor or need to make payroll. You guys have also bent over backwards... to make it work for us. I really appreciate that.
- George Del Toro,
We were funded [in 10 days] (the approval process was very smooth). The way I spend my time has changed dramatically since then. I can spend as much time as I need visiting with customers and out on the field... In closing I would like to tell you that Capital Solutions has made it possible for GDT Well Service, Inc. to triple (300%) its business in the last year, without any of the "growing pains".
