Metta Rest Spa: Should the Stricklands Lend?
A Canadian couple whose daughter owned Metta Rest Spa, a flotation spa that opened in September 2014 in Vancouver, British Columbia, had invested almost CA$1.2 million in the business. Their daughter had recently asked for another $60,000 to keep the business afloat, and in early 2016 the couple needed to decide whether to invest more money in the business. The business had a net loss in 2015 and needed cash to continue to operate. What other information should they be asking for? They needed to know if the business would be able to sustain itself without requiring their retirement funds. Lindsay Clayton is affiliated with Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
