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.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$187,812         x          3          =          $563,436

The Fair Market Value found above positions the business List Price at $560,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                             $560,000

10%Buyer Down Payment:            $56,000

10%Seller Financing:                     $56,000

80%Bank Loan:                             $448,000

Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $1,044.

Bank Loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $5,887.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 10% down payment of $56,000 would retain a profit of $104,636, which results in a 187% 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 $560,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.26. 

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.
