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 Prescribed Multiple = Fair Market Value
Cash Flow is the sum of business net income plus any owner perks and any non-onward going expenses.
A multiple is prescribed by a 20 question, 100-point parameter ranking system that is used to analyze the current business health. Each question is based on a scale from 1 to 5: 1 being low, 2 below average, 3 average, 4 above average, 5 high. The average of the responses sum is the business’ prescribed multiple.
For this business, a 3-Year Average Cash Flow was used with a prescribed multiple is 4.5. With this information, the computation is as follows:
$709,101 x 4.5 = $3,190,955
The Fair Market Value found above positions the business List Price at $3,190,000.
Purchase Price: $3,190,000
15% Buyer Down Payment: $478,500
25% Seller Earn Out: $797,500
60% Bank Loan: $1,914,000
The Firm Business Brokerage is not a real estate brokerage and therefore the staff will not handle any aspect of the lease, sale or purchase of real estate.
