Company Financials Request

I have solicited a landowner which is a very large corporation. They are asking for my company financials. My company is brand new with no financials. I am looking to flip the lease. Any suggestions on how I should respond?


That’s a very difficult situation, and one that you don’t encounter very often. You’ll pretty much have to be honest with them that the company has just been started, but then hardsell them on your experience (even if it’s in another industry) and your financial stability (based on your personal finances) and hope they don’t read such things very thoroughly. If they are adamant that you have to be a Fortune 500 company, then there’s not much you can do. But sometimes people ask for such things as a matter of routine, and you can slide through if you’re lucky.
