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          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 2018 Cash Flow was used with a prescribed multiple is 2.55.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$374,950         x          2.55     =          $956,122

The Fair Market Value found above positions the business List Price at $955,000.

Funding Example


Purchase Price:                             $955,000

15%Buyer Down Payment:      $143,250

15%Seller Financing:                $143,250

70%Bank Loan:                         $668,500

Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $2,685.

Bank Loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $8,785.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 15% down payment of $143,250 would retain a profit of $237,482 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 $955,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.4. 

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.
