This childcare center on the north side of Omaha has great expansion opportunities with minimal costs. Licensed for 56, the center has 63 FT & PT enrollees and sees an average of 42 children daily. The center sets itself apart by offering healthy meal planning, with all food prepared in-house by the center’s Cook. Due to this effort, the daycare exceeds Nebraska’s state minimum for healthy food requirements!

On staff are 5 full-time teachers (1 Lead Preschool, 2 Toddler, 2 Infant), 2 part-time Floaters, 1 Administrative Assistant and 1 Cook. The center is located in a 4,000-sq. ft. space with dedicated rooms for toddlers, infants and school-aged children, as well as a kitchen for food preparation. Outside is a fenced-in playground.

Growth exists in changing the daycare over to infants and toddlers only. This will boost daily attendance and increase sales. The daycare is also licensed for late night hours, and a buyer could explore the option of extending current hours to cover a 2nd shift. With permits in place, a buyer could knock down some walls within the center to accommodate for enrollments.

Listed at a great price, this is a highly-rated center in a well-trafficked part of Omaha that can easily continue to grow. This would be perfect for an existing daycare looking for a second location, or for an educational professional interested in owning a business.

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 2017 is $104,727, and the prescribed multiplier is 3.2.

With this information, the computation result follows:

$104,727         x          3.2       =          $335,126

The List Price for the business is set at $335,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                       $349,000

15% Buyer Down Payment:     $52,350

15% Seller Financing:               $52,350

70% Bank Loan:                      $244,300

Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $976.

Bank Loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $3,210.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a down payment of $52,350 would retain a profit of $54,490, which results in a 104% return on investment in the first year!

A lender is required to have a minimum 1.5 coverage ratio for any business loans extended. At a proposed Purchase Price of $349,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.08. 

Please note that the decision of whether to extend a loan on any sale belongs to the bank, and this document does not guarantee specific terms or verify that financing is available.
