With a unique focus on the psychological evaluations of women looking to donate their eggs, this Arizona based psychology practice has been operating for over 20 years. This business has an emphasis on providing evaluations for children, adults, and seniors alike. The owner is currently doing minimal patient work as this practice has many accomplished and knowledgeable team members, both full-time and contracted employees. There is a full-time psychotherapist, a full-time neuropsychologist working with adults, a psychometrist to assist with testing, and a part-time contracted psychologist to work on egg donor cases.  Many clients are evaluated via phone, so some employees work remotely. 


Evaluations include neurological disability assessment and diagnosis, intellectual testing, medical procedure screening, civil and criminal testimony, alcohol/drug recovery center reports, and psychological assessment of women looking to donate their eggs. This practice is also known for providing excellent patient care through individual psychology services.  These services are offered to those of all ages and includes, but is not limited to, general individual counseling, adjustment for traumatic brain injuries, and those living with chronic pain or disabilities.


Due to the unique focus of the work done by this practice, a new owner many not need to be a working therapist as long as those with appropriate credentials were hired to replace the owner’s billable hours.

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 2016/2017 cash flow was used with a prescribed multiple is 2.61.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$183,320         x          2.61       =          $478,230

The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $478,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                       $478,000

10%  Buyer Down Payment:     $47,800

25%  Seller Financing:             $119,500

65%  Bank Loan:                      $310,700

Seller financing 6-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $1,897.

Bank loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $4,083.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 10% down payment of $47,800 would retain a profit of $111,470, which results in a 233% 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 $478,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.55. 

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.
