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 annualized is $475,733. The prescribed multiplier is 1.7

With this information, the computation result follows:

$481,289         x          1.7       =          $818,191

The List Price for the business is set at $790,000. The business is discounted due to the Seller’s desire to move out of state.

Using the Cash Flow of $481,289, the Buyer’s Net Operating Income after debt service would be $353,449.  Assuming a 10% Buyer down payment on the Purchase Price $790,000, the Return on Investment in the first year would be four-fold.
