Turnkey operation with huge growth potential. The current DVM works only about 2 ½ days per week and is selling this fully staffed clinic in order to retire. Established in 1970 in Montgomery County, Iowa, this vet practice is fully furnished with all necessary furniture, fixtures, and equipment (this is a value of $147,072) for day to day operations.

Occupying a 1,502 square foot facility, with 2 offices, 1 lab, and 1 operation room – a Buyer would only pay $1,200/month in rent.  This has been accounted for in the Cash Flow/Owner Profit amounts annually.

The facility is staffed with 1 FT Vet, 1 FT Tech, plus additional PT Staff. Seller will train and transition for up to 6 months post-close if Buyer desires.

A Buyer would receive a Net Operating Income (NOI) of $55,477 in year one after all expenses and loan payments were made. This results in a 198% Return on the Buyer’s initial investment of $28,000.

Valuation Details

The Firm Business Brokerage used a Cash Flow Valuation methodology to determine the Purchase Price of the business. The formula used is as follows:

Cash Flow x Multiplier = Price

"Cash flow" is the sum of net income plus any owner perks and non-onward going expenses.

"Multiplier" is a prescribed number between 1 and 5 determined by a 100-point, 20-question rating system used to determine the business valuation (average is 3).

The Cash Flow for 2015 is $100,050. The prescribed multiplier is 2.8

With this information, the computation result follows:

$100,050 x 2.8 = $280,140

The List Price for the business is set at $280,000
