As a leader in the imprinted textiles market, this family-owned business is a nationwide provider of high-quality contracted printing services.  Working directly with small businesses, companies, small screen printers, and small embroiderers, this is a wholesale print shop without custom or retail operations.  Customers deliver items to this print-only shop, so the owner does not maintain a large inventory of SKUs.  Several clients have licensed merchandise items printed with this business. 


Due to an experienced and knowledgeable staff, this shop can process high volume orders and is capable of printing over 8,000 items per day.  Turnaround averages 3-5 days and customers receive their items in a timely manner.  Utilizing the in-house ink mixing department and several ink types such as Plastinol-based, water-based, Crystalina, and Shimmer, this company can print in any custom or standard color on a wide array of items and fabrics (100% cotton, 50/50 poly blends, spandex, nylon, and canvas).  Currently, the majority of printed items are t-shirts and sweatshirts/hoodies. 

In addition to production staff, an art specialist is on staff to handle any needs related graphics and preparing the graphics for printing.  The owner is involved in day-to-day operations and duties can be assumed by a new owner.

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

$268,801         x          3.7       =          $994,564

The Fair Market Value found above positions the business List Price at $990,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                               $990,000

12.5% Buyer Down Payment:        $123,750

12.5% Seller Financing:                  $123,750

75% Bank Loan:                              $742,500

Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $2,307.

Bank Loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $9,758.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 12.5% down payment of $123,750 would retain a profit of $124,026, which results in a 100% 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 $990,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 1.86. 

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.
