Beginnings of Horizons Business Solutions Inc:
HBS was originally organized as an extension of Equipment Finance Corporation (EFC) Alpharetta, GA; an equity based finance company to the Printing and Corrugated
Industries. Following the financial meltdown at the end of 2008, many of EFC's clients, were negatively impacted by the economic downturn. Some found themselves in a
situation where their business was experiencing such a drastic reduction in revenues and coupled with static overhead the situation required many owners to ask for
assistance to modify and rewrite loans, or consider closing their business altogether. Beginning in the 3rd quarter of 2010, several clients faced with the option of closing
their business, approached EFC and asked for assistance in finding a buyer. After several successful transactions EFC established a separate department to handle Mergers
and Acquisitions, but this service was only been available to existing EFC's clients.
During 2012, this division evolved into its own independent company, Horizon Business Solutions Inc. which currently maintains productive business relationships with
clients from coast to coast. The Executive staff of HBS has more than 30 years each of industry experience. The Associate Staff all have various areas of expertise and are
all highly qualified in their fields. Having extensive contacts in the Printing and Corrugated industries allows HBS to stay at the forefront of leading trends. Along with our
staff, HBS also has various corporate partners which provide a depth of support for almost any project.

Services Related to Companies looking to Buy – Growth through acquisition, Most companies are finding it impossible to grow in a shrinking market with razor thin
margins, the days of increasing sales through price cutting or "acquiring a new salesman" from their competitors are in the past. The only true growth potential is through

any additional equipment assets. HBS offers buyers the service of finding companies that are considering selling, we perform back ground checks, and provide additional
due diligence information.
