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 4.2.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$794,827         x          4.2       =          $3,338,273

The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $3,338,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                             $3,338,000

10% Buyer Down Payment:             $333,800

20% Seller Financing:                      $667,600

70% Bank Loan:                             $2,336,600

Seller financing 6-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $10,598.

Bank loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $30,706.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 10% down payment of $333,800 would retain a profit of $299,182, which results in a 90% 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 $3,338,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 1.6. 

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.
