This indoor inflatable business has a trained GM in place, so the owner is fairly hand-off.  Please note that the cash flow does reflect a new owner being owner-operator.  This is a huge 12,000 sq. ft. building with a lobby and two birthday/private party rooms.  75% of the current business does come from birthday parties.  Hours for this business vary from day-to-day depending on the number of birthday parties and group events reserved.  Many birthday parties are held each week as well as several group rentals with open bounce filling the remaining hours. 


This very clean and bright facility has many inflatables for bouncing, sliding, and playing.  The typical client base for this business is children under 13, but those of all ages can find lighthearted enjoyment playing in this inflatable playground.  Birthday parties are a great source of revenue and included with celebrations are party rooms, party professionals to guide the celebrations, and jump time.  Other group events include fundraisers, school parties, field trips, and other group festivities. 


This facility is meticulously maintained on a weekly basis, ensuring a clean place for children to play.  The staff is responsible, flexible, and excited to maintain a fun and safe environment.  The current owner is also a daily operator, but an additional manager can be hired to decrease on-sight hours, if desired.

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 2017 cash flow was used with a prescribed multiple is 3.35.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$155,249         x          3.35     =          $520,084

The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $519,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                                $519,000

10%Buyer Down Payment:               $51,900

10%Seller Financing:                        $51,900

80%Bank Loan:                                $415,200

Seller financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $968.

Bank loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $5,456.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 10% down payment of $51,900 would retain a profit of $78,162, which results in a 150% 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 $519,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.01. 

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.
