  • Home Magazine with Great Ad Revenue

    40,000+ in readership per issue and a distribution of 12,000 print copies keep this lifestyle magazine and digital publication in demand. Geared to an upscale demographic, the magazine has a companion online-only publication that is issued to nearly 4,000 industry contacts on a bi-monthly basis. Additionally, the company offers marketing and advertising services as a separate revenue stream, which include website design, custom publishing, and graphic design.

    Writing, photography and copy editing for both publications are provided by long term freelancers, and all archived material rights are retained by the publisher. All layout and design is handled by a full-time in-house graphic designer, with the owner handling all ad sales and providing editorial oversight. Both publications have dedicated websites and archived digital publications.

    The digital publication is funded solely by advertising, with the print publication by advertising and subscriptions. A new owner could hire freelance sales personnel or handle more of the editorial creation, marketing services and the business management, creating whatever position they wanted. Both publications are in a unique position to grow in content and scope, while also expanding geographically.

  • Trade Show Display & Promotional Products Distributor

    Over 240 clients in Southeastern Tennessee use this trade show display and promotional products distributor for their marketing and advertising needs. Clients are local and regional leaders in banking, insurance, technology and other industries, who routinely need displays and signage for trade shows, in-house promotions, and marketing campaigns. Services include display sales and rental, as well as exhibit storage and management, of which 14 clients currently house $317K worth of exhibit property in the company’s warehouse.

    The company leases a 5,000-sq. ft. space housing an office, showroom, workroom space, and 1,250-sq. ft. dedicated to storage. A full-time employee manages inventory and customer displays, sets up booths as needed, and provides necessary repairs to equipment and exhibit property.

    Growth exists in selling online, developing the customer base for promotional products, hiring 1099 employees to man rental booths at trade shows, or through offering more marketing services to existing clients. An ambitious buyer could look into expanding the service area through network contacts in other cities.

    This is a great opportunity to take a company entering its 25th year to the next level. An industry buyer, such as a large-format printer, would get a great client base, or a marketing company could add complementary services.

With a focus on politics, this is a great niche add-on for a marketing or publishing company interested in public sector work. Located in Austin, Texas, clients are local, statewide and national non-profits and public organizations requiring assistance with PR, campaigns, fundraising and more. With a strong background in issue campaigns, some of the agency’s notable past clients include national and state Senate races, children’s and women’s policy initiatives, and local public programs. The agency also holds contracts with a few Texas cities for elections, community organizing, small business program advocacy and more.

  • Niche Printing in Specialty Yard Signs

    A niche market in specialty signs, and contracts with top-rated companies in Omaha have made this full-service printing and promotional products company a top contender in its industry. Equipped with a large format printer, a laminator and a heat press, clients can customize business cards, mugs, signs, stickers and more, all while using the company’s online store. Nearly all services can be provided in-house, with the exception of screen printing and embroidery, which could be brought internally with the right equipment.

    The seller has stepped away from the business in the past few months to focus on changing careers, so the bulk of day-to-day operations are handled by a full-time General Manager/Graphic Designer. Rounding out the team are a part-time Salesman and a part-time Graphic Designer. The Salesman focuses mostly on sales to local schools for apparel, which needs to expand to more schools for growth.

    Other revenue exists in selling more business card services, which have a huge profit margin. Full stack marketing services for medium-sized companies are a perfect fit, which should grow with promotion of the company’s online store. Priced at $155,000, a buyer would receive a full-service printing company in perfect shape to grow.

    The team includes an Agency Principal, an Account Coordinator and several contracted creatives. Most client meetings and interfacing are handled by the Agency Principal and Account Coordinator, with the seller focusing on business development.

    While each year brings new clients, there is a steady revenue stream from clients paying for on-going creative needs. Outfitted with a strong name and industry recognition, a strategic buyer could step in and work toward getting more regional and national work. With a great team in place, the agency should profit a buyer $86,827 in the first year after debt payments.

  • Event Production with Retail Large Inventory

    For 14 years, Houston has been treated to the best event planning and design available. With a large retail inventory in place, this company can accommodate over 150 events each year. More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    Roughly 30 subcontractors are in place to help with setting up décor and equipment, and the sellers consistently rely on a good group of 6 to 10 regular crew members. Services are split 10% planning, 40% production and 50% rentals, with around 30% of clients needing help with décor, sound, lighting and more. While the company can accommodate some staging, sound and lighting for smaller events, these services are generally outsourced to one of 10 strategic partners.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

  • Special Event Photo Booth Business - Run Passively

    Turn up the fancy for weddings, parties and corporate events with this elegant photo booth business netting a 49% profit margin!  Current owner runs passively, but increase profits by attending the photo booths yourself at each event.  An average 4 to 7-hour booking runs at just over $600 with expenses at $150 to $184, resulting in a net profit of over $415 per event!  Business is being turned away as the owner is unable to accommodate the demand, but 2015, 2016 and 2017 had 141 bookings each. 

    Customers can choose from 4 photo booth styles: wedding, party, VIP and Hollywood.  Booths range from a cozy, five-person capacity to a whopping 12-person affair.  Photo strips are presented on stylish VIP frames, and those waiting outside can see the fun within the booths broadcast over TV monitors.  Party guests are also treated to fun props to be used in the photo booths, and the Hollywood vibe is real with red carpets and stanchions for the VIP experience

    Established in 2010, this business is fully operational and ready for a new owner to step in and begin booking events. Uniformed employees staff the booths as needed for the events, taking care of pre-event setup, helping customers during events, and teardown afterward.  The current owner books events and manages the contracted labor.  This business could easily continue as a passive operation, but profits would increase by an owner working the events.

    In the first year, a buyer with a 15% down payment of $19,650 would profit $20,837 (106% return) after all debts are paid.

    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          Multiplier          =          Price

    “Cash Flow” is the sum of net income plus any owner perks and non-onward going expenses.

    “Multiplier” is a prescribed number between 1 and 5 determined by a 100-point, 20-question rating system used to determine the business valuation.

    The 2-year average Cash Flow for 2016 & 2017 is $42,924 with a prescribed multiplier of 3.1.

    With this information, the computation result follows:

    $42,924           x          3.1       =          $133,064

    The List Price for the business is set at $131,000.

     

    Funding Example

    Purchase Price:                       $131,000

    15%Buyer Down Payment:     $19,650

    25%Seller Financing:               $32,750

    60%Bank Loan:                        $78,600

     

    Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.5% equals a monthly loan payment of $611.

     

    Bank Loan 7-year term at a rate of 5.25% equals a monthly loan payment of $1,120.

     

    After business expenses and annual loan payments of $20,769, a buyer would see a profit of $20,837. A 15% down payment of $19,650 results in a 106% 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 $131,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.00.

  • 25-Year-Old Commodities Brokerage Pending

    This futures trading company earns a 52% profit margin. Located in Eastern Nebraska with 700 active clients across 30 states, 80% of contracts are grain or livestock based. Outside of these, futures trading comes from other traditional markets like currency, oil, precious metals and more. In business for over 25 years, the seller is looking to retire and will be leaving behind an additional book of 1,200 inactive clients for a new owner to take on and grow the company.

    A buyer looking to broker would need to obtain a Series 3 license administered by FINRA. The test is a straightforward 2 1/2-hour, multiple choice exam to secure a license. This can be achieved during the Due Diligence time period after an offer to purchase the business has been made, and can be taken in testing centers across Nebraska. A buyer not looking to broker would need to hire additional brokers to assist the 2 employed brokers currently working.

    This is an excellent chance for a sales professional to break into a lucrative field with obtainable licensing, or for a larger commodities firm to acquire a second location. Sales are steady year-over-year, and an ambitious broker could drive sells well over the $2M mark.

  • Absentee Large Animal Vet with 2 Locations

    Located in and serving Northeastern Nebraska, this two-location large animal vet practice is up for sale. Owned and operated by 3 practicing DVM’s, the sellers are looking to slowly transition out of the operation over the next 3 years, and are looking for an absentee owner to take interest in the business now. All three owners split time between the two locations, and are helped by two non-owner DVM’s. While the practice has operations in two different towns, the distance between both is just a 15-minute drive.

    Specializing in the care of cattle, roughly 80% of services are focused on cow/calf and feedlot operations, including processing facilities. A large part of services involves dispensation of medication and antibiotics, and comprises ¼ to 1/3 of income. The vets also assist with swine operations, equine facilities and small animal concerns.

    Assisting the vets are 6 feed yard technicians who help with the examination and treatment of animals. At each location is an office manager to handle daily operations and run the facilities, including A/R, A/P and payroll.  Facilities also include corrals to hold animals dropped off for longer-term care.

    A growth opportunity exists in increasing small animal care, which currently only comprises about 8% of income. Even without that increase, a 10% down payment of $137,200 would yield a first year’s profit of $120,771 after debt payments.

The company had not planned ahead with inventory and were not able to meet demand in 2016, which was already a slower year due to a decrease in crop prices. Augers are an impulse buy, so having inventory on hand for dealerships or the occasional customer ordering direct, is a must.

    On staff are 15 employees, 11 of whom are skilled or unskilled plant laborers. Laborers, including a Production Supervisor, handle all assembly and painting. The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

    The business has over $2M in assets, with much of it comprised of inventory parts and completed machinery. Inventory and equipment are housed across the campus’ 11 buildings, which total 69,000 sq. ft. Growth exists in manufacturing longer augers and building up inventory with capital investments.

  • Northwest Iowa Small Animal Vet Practice

    Serving Northwest Iowa for over 55 years, this small animal vet practice is earning the current owner a 32% profit margin. Specializing in cats and dogs, nearby horses and some small farm animals also come to this owner/operator clinic.  Assisting the doctor are two vet techs and an office assistant, as well as a few resident felines.

    Included in the purchase of the clinic is roughly $113,000 in assets. A new owner would receive $84,000 in general DVM equipment, the majority of it purchased within the last 3 years. Nearly $15,000 in wholesale inventory will transition to a buyer, as well as around $14,000 in A/R, with 70% of it collectible.

    Growth exists in adding grooming services for the current clients, as well as some boarding. The current owner previously worked with large farm animals, but due to health issues has discontinued that practice in recent years. This would be a great area for growth, as the practice is situated in farm country.

    With a proposed purchase price of $390,000, a 10% down payment of $39,000 would return a first year’s profit of $75,868 after debts. This would position a buyer to earn a 194% return on investment.

  • Absentee Large Animal Vet with 2 Locations

    Located in and serving Northeastern Nebraska, this two-location large animal vet practice is up for sale. Owned and operated by 3 practicing DVM’s, the sellers are looking to slowly transition out of the operation over the next 3 years, and are looking for an absentee owner to take interest in the business now. All three owners split time between the two locations, and are helped by two non-owner DVM’s. While the practice has operations in two different towns, the distance between both is just a 15-minute drive.

    Specializing in the care of cattle, roughly 80% of services are focused on cow/calf and feedlot operations, including processing facilities. A large part of services involves dispensation of medication and antibiotics, and comprises ¼ to 1/3 of income. The vets also assist with swine operations, equine facilities and small animal concerns.

    Assisting the vets are 6 feed yard technicians who help with the examination and treatment of animals. At each location is an office manager to handle daily operations and run the facilities, including A/R, A/P and payroll.  Facilities also include corrals to hold animals dropped off for longer-term care.

    A growth opportunity exists in increasing small animal care, which currently only comprises about 8% of income. Even without that increase, a 10% down payment of $137,200 would yield a first year’s profit of $120,771 after debt payments.

  • 2 ½ Days per Week Vet Practice in Southwest Iowa

    Turnkey operation with huge growth potential. The current DVM works only about 2 ½ days per week and is selling this fully staffed clinic in order to retire. Established in 1970 in Montgomery County, Iowa, this vet practice is fully furnished with all necessary furniture, fixtures, and equipment (this is a value of $147,072) for day to day operations.

    Occupying a 1,502 square foot facility, with 2 offices, 1 lab, and 1 operation room – a Buyer would only pay $1,200/month in rent.  This has been accounted for in the Cash Flow/Owner Profit amounts annually.

    The seller is willing to stay on and practice for another five years if the business is purchased by an absentee owner.  Currently, the veterinarian is looking to gradually move toward retirement, so a non-DVM buyer would have ample time to hire additional help in anticipation of that exit.

    With a purchase price of $1,576,700, a buyer would place 10% down, with a bank loan partially collateralized by the $230,000 in assets.  This is a perfect investment opportunity for an absentee owner, or for a DVM looking to own a business.

    The company is located in a 4,000-sq. ft. space leased at $1,000/month.  3 full-time employees, all skilled mechanics, earn $20-$23/hour repairing semis and trailers for 500 active clients.  Labor charges are $80/hour plus parts, with the average ticket ranging between $500 to $600.  While the seller is somewhat involved in daily maintenance, the employees are able to handle the workload, and a new owner need not be as involved in mechanic work.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

  • Leather & Vinyl Repair with 125K in Profit

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    Growth areas could be an increase in marketing as the current owner has not devote time to that area. Even without marketing, the company has seen tremendous growth, but some attention here could ensure steady numbers year over year. A buyer would also be wise to focus on business development to see the company into the next 10 years and beyond.

  • Leather & Vinyl Repair with 125K in Profit

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    All managers are full-time, and are responsible for running each studio’s calendar, setting up events, handling inventory and ordering supplies. As the studios are only open during events, the Managers are able to partially work from home. However, a buyer looking to increase profits should consider running one of the studios as an Owner/Operator.

In operation for nearly 20 years, sales increased by 21% over the two-year period between 2014 and 2016, and is expected to grow an additional 5% in 2017. The seller is a Master Plumber that will transition the company to a buyer for up to 6 months.

    Focusing on residential customers, 90% of income is generated from repairs and remodels. As the profit margins are low for new construction, the company is usually a referral for builds and, as such, does not seek out these jobs. Currently, there are 5 new builds that should bill about $20,000 - $25,000 each. The seller did not bid these jobs, but was asked by the contractor for services.

    Included in the sale is over $160,000 worth of vehicles, from vans to pickups. Some of them are branded with the company’s name, and others have magnetic logos. Additionally, a trailer, backhoe, and numerous tools and machinery will sell with the business.

    Priced at $607,500, this is a great acquisition for a plumbing business looking to break into a new market, or for an HVAC company to add plumbing services. A down payment of 10% should profit $95,732 in the first year after debt payments.

    With a proposed purchase price set at $105,000, a 10% down payment of $10,500 would provide a 105% return on investment in the first year.  This could easily increase if a buyer chooses to handle sales and contracts also.

    Earn over $120,000 in cash flow and a large Corpus Christi territory with this vinyl & leather repair business.  In 2016, the owner/operator earned a 70% profit margin working Nueces and San Patricio counties.  Seller handles all work for local AutoNation, BMW and Volkswagen dealerships, and also does repair services for 8 other auto dealers.  As there is currently no storefront, there is no overhead expense.  The business has been in operation since 2001, but the seller is looking to move onto new investments, and requires the capital from a sale to do so. 

    Services range from vinyl and leather repair, to stain and odor removal.  Auto clients can also receive paint repair, dent removal and wheel refinishing.  Most clients are in the auto industry, but a new owner would see huge growth by expanding into restaurants, doctor’s offices and private homes.

    While the seller had employees in the past, he has since downsized to suit his needs.  However, a subcontractor for upholstery replacement is used, and that cost is covered by mark up to the end user.

    As mentioned before, growth exists in expanding to sectors outside of auto repair.  Many establishments have leather, vinyl and plastic that receive wear and tear.  Another great growth area would be in residential and commercial vinyl repair.

    If you love an open work schedule, working with your hands, and working in different settings, this is the perfect opportunity for financial independence.

    Included in the purchase is roughly $540,000 in assets, including brake supplies, airbags, suspension parts, and the software/equipment for Cummins trucks and Caterpillar motors.  The shop is full-service, with the exception of not completing major engine overhauls.  Customers are also able to purchase Rigguards and S-Cams through the business, and can stop in to purchase spare parts.

    Currently there is no advertising done, and all new business is word of mouth.  Due to its prime location between two major thoroughfares, simply advertising along them with billboards would draw in new semi traffic for maintenance and recurrent repair work.

    This is a great opportunity to expand an existing commercial carpet cleaning business, or to start fresh and build on the current owner’s success.  With only $13,500, a buyer would walk away with $10,000 in equipment and a steady roster of clients.

  • Janitorial Company with 35% Margin

    This is a great chance to break into a growing market with a company seeing a 35% profit margin.  New owners could potentially see a 245% return on investment.  There is no special certification needed, just a dedication to good work.

    Inventory build-up is an important part of this business, and the ag equipment industry in general, as demonstrated by 2016’s numbers.

The office is staffed by an Office Manager and two salesmen. There is a General Manager who will stay on for transition, but will be leaving to join his family living in a different town.

    Since 1993, this company has provided EH&S training and consulting services throughout Arizona, Mexico, Canada and South America in the areas of OSHA, DOT/IATA, MSHA, Hazwoper, RCRA and EPA-accredited Asbestos. During this time, the company gained a majority of market share in Arizona due to the expert safety professionals that bring real world experience to the training and consulting projects. There are 4 staff instructor/consultants and a selection of 10+ vetted contract safety professionals, allowing the company to offer a wide range of compliance services. The Operations Manager and admin staff manage the daily business transactions with little or no input from the owner.

    The company operates 2 facilities in Arizona, each with classrooms and staff offices. Open enrollment classes are offered monthly at each location, and the training schedule and registration may be completed online.  In addition, approximately 50% of training services are custom “By Request” training conducted on-site at a client’s location. While 90% of clients are in Arizona, the company is seeing an increasing number of requests for services in Mexico, Canada and South America.

    Growth can be achieved by marketing and expanding the consulting segment of the business. The business also lends itself to standardization, and a buyer could open more locations or sell instructional material. This is a great opportunity to own a part-time to passive business that works well with a supervisory owner. Increasing involvement can only work to keep sales above the trending $1M mark.

  • Consulting & Coaching for Leadership Teams

    This is a coaching business unlike any other, with the seller operating remotely from Hawaii 50% of the time. Run as a lifestyle business in every sense of the word, the seller profits over $300,000, and lower overhead leaves the company with a 69% profit margin. Located in Kansas City, many clients are spread across the nation, and are mostly concentrated in healthcare, social services, and the arts.

    Services include strategic planning, portfolio assessment, board assessment & development, leader & organization development, and coaching. They have a rich portfolio of intellectual property, owning three registered trademarks and many copyrighted internally-developed models, as well as an assortment of selected commercial tools adapted to deliver effective support to clients. The company is contracted for the length of a project, providing needed services on site, virtually and through conferencing.

    While the seller does the bulk of the travel, there are 7 consultants that work with clients in the Kansas City area or remotely as needed. A buyer could choose to still take the choicest jobs while offering more travel time to the consultants.

    This is a unique opportunity to take an established company and grow it by entering the private sector, hiring more consultants, or offering more seminars. A motivated buyer could leave the company as is and still profit well, or take the bull by the horns and work with more clients and markets.

  • Technology Development & Consulting Firm

Specializing in placing skilled engineers on site to build custom applications and software, notable clients have included 3M, Intel, Gulfstream, Scientific Games and more.

However, the majority of clients require service in the Atlanta area. Engineers will travel where the client needs them, including oversees, which occurs roughly 5% of the time.

    Growth exists in bidding more contracts. The seller had a large infrastructure build contract in 2015 that bumped gross sales to over $7M. Seeking out more of those opportunities, as well as government contracts, will provide great income streams.

    Growth exists in increasing Project Management services. The seller has seen an increase in consultations for clients’ project managing needs, and continuing to market this service should produce a nice revenue stream. Also, as corporate clients are becoming a larger part of sales, seeking out these customers is another path to consider.

    In operation for 13 years, this company continues to grow every year, and has built a great reputation with great results. This is a wonderful chance to take an already successful company to the next level!

    Contracted workers handle delivery and installation of pieces, and the company has warehouse staff for quality assurance. The owner works about 25 hours/week on recruiting and reviewing financials and booked sales. A staff of 21 allows him to take significant time away from the business if desired.

    This is an excellent business with an outstanding reputation and repeat clientele. No immediate growth is needed to ensure steady sales and profits, as the company is a well-oiled machine. An ambitious buyer could take the business and expand in any number of ways.

    Customers can choose from 4 photo booth styles: wedding, party, VIP and Hollywood.  Booths range from a cozy, five-person capacity to a whopping 12-person affair.  Photo strips are presented on stylish VIP frames, and those waiting outside can see the fun within the booths broadcast over TV monitors.  Party guests are also treated to fun props to be used in the photo booths, and the Hollywood vibe is real with red carpets and stanchions for the VIP experience

    Established in 2010, this business is fully operational and ready for a new owner to step in and begin booking events. Uniformed employees staff the booths as needed for the events, taking care of pre-event setup, helping customers during events, and teardown afterward.  The current owner books events and manages the contracted labor.  This business could easily continue as a passive operation, but profits would increase by an owner working the events.

    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          Multiplier          =          Price

    “Cash Flow” is the sum of net income plus any owner perks and non-onward going expenses.

    “Multiplier” is a prescribed number between 1 and 5 determined by a 100-point, 20-question rating system used to determine the business valuation.

    The 2-year average Cash Flow for 2016 & 2017 is $42,924 with a prescribed multiplier of 3.1.

    With this information, the computation result follows:

    $42,924           x          3.1       =          $133,064

    The List Price for the business is set at $131,000.

     

    Funding Example

    Purchase Price:                       $131,000

    15%Buyer Down Payment:     $19,650

    25%Seller Financing:               $32,750

    60%Bank Loan:                        $78,600

     

    Seller Financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.5% equals a monthly loan payment of $611.

     

    Bank Loan 7-year term at a rate of 5.25% equals a monthly loan payment of $1,120.

     

    After business expenses and annual loan payments of $20,769, a buyer would see a profit of $20,837. A 15% down payment of $19,650 results in a 106% 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 $131,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.00.

     

    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.

  • Event Production with Retail Large Inventory

    For 14 years, Houston has been treated to the best event planning and design available. With a large retail inventory in place, this company can accommodate over 150 events each year. More than half of clients come specifically for pipe and drape, and the sellers have maintained a huge selection of styles and colors to assist with any event.

    Roughly 30 subcontractors are in place to help with setting up décor and equipment, and the sellers consistently rely on a good group of 6 to 10 regular crew members. Services are split 10% planning, 40% production and 50% rentals, with around 30% of clients needing help with décor, sound, lighting and more. While the company can accommodate some staging, sound and lighting for smaller events, these services are generally outsourced to one of 10 strategic partners.

    A buyer would need to have storage space ready to accommodate the inventory, but as the sellers do keep more inventory than is necessary for success, a space of about 2,500 sq. ft. should suffice. With a good name and strong relationships in place, this is an excellent business to grow through increased marketing and partner alliances.

  • Paint & Sip Studio with 3 Locations - Non-Franchise

    This non-franchise paint & sip studio has 2 locations in Iowa and 1 in South Dakota, each with a full-time Manager and several part-time Event Coordinators available for assistance with events. Offering public, private, corporate and mobile event services, over 80 paint & sips were held between all 3 locations in October. Since each location is fully staffed, the seller oversees operations and focuses on the big picture.

    In-studio and mobile activities are led by local artists, who are art students, art teachers, and talented community artists. Many of them have come from events they have attended at the studios, or have approached the business to offer their services. Assisting attendees are Event Coordinators, who check people in, refill paint, and help to create a fun atmosphere. Depending on the number of attendees, between 1 and 3 Event Coordinators will be present.

    All managers are full-time, and are responsible for running each studio’s calendar, setting up events, handling inventory and ordering supplies. As the studios are only open during events, the Managers are able to partially work from home. However, a buyer looking to increase profits should consider running one of the studios as an Owner/Operator.

    Growth also exists in offering more corporate and mobile events. The seller is currently working on establishing a partnership with a corporate team building operation to boost the corporate event numbers. This is a great way to source clients for private functions.

  • GSA & Public Works Aluminum Boat Manufacturer

    For over 50 years, this custom aluminum boat manufacturer has been creating sought-after designs popular with government and state entities. The seller has just renewed a decades-long contract with the GSA, and continually receives orders from state entities, who have brought clients in from across the nation. Notable purchasers include the Army Corps of Engineers, Department of the Interior, the Bureau of Land Management, Georgia Power and Alabama Power.

A buyer should consider creating basic fishing boats and motor boats. The full-stocked showroom is set up for anything a boater would need, so adding new lines should fit well into the existing business model.

  • Server Staffing for Corporate & Social Events

    Weekly accounts and more work than can be accommodated keep this service staffing company busy. Established in Kansas City for 25 years, clients are corporations, caterers, event spaces, country clubs and private individuals. In any given week, staff are working for 20 clients, with a handful working full time at the back of the house. While 2 key employees handle scheduling and billing, there is a list of about 50 for event staffing, ensuring that the seller can step away for vacations without a worry.

A buyer could look to increase this revenue stream, or hire more staff to work with corporate clients and food service companies. There is also a growing need for back end staffing, especially during holidays. This is a great chance to take a well-known company and grow it to the next level with more staff and an ambitious owner.

Begun in 1980, the current owner has worked to build decades-old relationships with artists, and the gallery currently houses artwork from over 100 artists across the Midwest and Southwest. The seller is looking to retire, and has started to step back from the business over the past couple of years.

A manager with 10 years of tenure is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the gallery and handles many of the seller’s duties. To assist the manager are 2 FT personnel and 7 PT personnel.

    While the current owner does not actively need to search for new artists, there is room for growth in other areas. A buyer could consider working with corporations and banks to purchase pieces for their offices, or with interior designers to assist in staging or selling pieces to homeowners doing remodels. At a list price of $110,000 and a down payment of only $33,000, this established gallery has great possibility for a new owner.

Specializing in elegant and tasteful events from weddings to corporate parties, menus range from breakfast to picnic specials.

The seller does not prepare food, but does handle billing and meeting with prospective clients, who are 60% commercial and 40% residential. Of these clients, not one makes up more than 10% of sales.

    Looking to retire, the seller will finance 10% of the $382,000 purchase price. Contributing a 10% down payment of $38,200, a new owner could see a first year’s profit of $68,627 after debts.

    Staffing is kept at a bare minimum, with three on-call employees and 1099 staff as needed.  There are four owners that operate this establishment, splitting responsibility between bookkeeping, scheduling staff, ordering and cooking when needed.  This business has been a part-time venture, but there has been so much growth that the owners are unable to devote the needed attention to it.

    A new owner could increase growth by booking more events, marketing to professional groups for daytime events, and offer discounts for events that help fill the empty time slots not used during the weekends.

    Restaurant and bar owners across the area come to this business for quality products and service. Outfitted with hundreds of options, clients can place orders and receive equipment assembly. Part of the attraction of this company is its ample showroom, where customers can peruse product samples and work with employees to help design layouts and remodels. While walk-ins are frequent, most customers (about 50%) are contractors that have previously purchased items.

    Growth exists in attending more industry conferences to network, adding used equipment to the catalog, increasing SKU’s and hiring a dedicated sales person. Priced at $225,000, a buyer would receive over $270,000 in assets that can be partially funded by an equipment loan.

  • Community Liquor Store

    Located roughly 1 hour east of Omaha’s border with Iowa, this small-town liquor store has earned some of the loyalist clientele in its 9 years of operating. Run as a second business for the owner, who is looking to retire, the store offers a unique combination of choice liquor, tobacco and beer and wine tastings. In addition to a popular and well-liked Facebook page, the store has a great location along the main artery in town.

    Included in the purchase is $25,000 worth of equipment, which is comprised of coolers (walk-in, 2-door and 3-door), shelving and fixtures. Inventory has not been considered in the valuation, as the owners will officially tally the inventory on the closing day. A buyer will then be able to purchase the inventory in a separate transaction.

    While the owner does open the store on weekdays, there are 3 part-time workers covering different shifts. A buyer looking to increase profits should consider running the business as an owner/operator.  Growth also exists in offering more specials and tasting, as well as putting in a drive-thru down the line. 

    For $55,000, a buyer would be taking on an ideal small-town business with great growth potential. If you’re looking to become a small business owner, this is an excellent opportunity to get started.

  • 4-Location Gourmet Gifts & Treats

    With four locations across Omaha and Lincoln, these gourmet retail and delivery stores earn a combined $1.6M in sales. Part of a national franchise with locations across the globe, these stores are the only ones in Nebraska and the only service for Council Bluffs. The franchise has been in the area for 11 years with a unique product and reputation.

    Each store is fully staffed with part-time help and a full-time manager. A delivery van comes with each location, helping to serve the increasing online and same-day delivery sales. The smallest store is 1,200 sq. ft., with the largest two both at 1,600 sq. ft. These locations have strong repeat business. The franchise average puts customers ordering 1.7 products each year, but these stores average between 2.9 and 3.1 products per person each year.

    Sellers currently oversee operations and assist in the stores when needed. Both are passionate about the brand and products, and so spend more time than is necessary within the stores. A new owner could scale back hours to create more passive ownership.

    The franchise values existing stores at $250,000, but these stores are being valued at $196,000 to suit the local market. At a purchase price of $785,000, a bank loan would be partially collateralized by the $135,876 in assets.

    With two Omaha locations, this national bakery and donut franchise grosses over $770,000 combined. Each shop is situated near major intersections and heavy populated areas of town. In operation for 12 and 5 years respectively, the seller is looking to relocate and would like to pass these stores onto dedicated buyers.

    Including donuts, the shops offer coffee, cappuccino and fresh orange juice. Also available are bagels, sandwiches, muffins and some pastries. One location has a drive thru, making it extra appealing to all crowds taking advantage of the long operating hours. A new owner could do the same at the other location as an avenue for growth.

    At a purchase price of $380,000, a buyer paying $57,000 (15%) would acquire 2 prime locations and profit $49,204 during the first year.

Specializing in elegant and tasteful events from weddings to corporate parties, menus range from breakfast to picnic specials. With both catering and liquor licenses, the owner has begun offering cocktail-only events without food. This is a great area for growth and promises to be a fantastic revenue earner

    Located in a strip mall, the company occupies 3 bays at 2,583 sq. ft., and is leased for $1,750 per month, or $21,000 per year. The large space allows for the 7 kitchen staff to prepare up to 1,200 plates per day. Currently, the busy months of May and June see just 900 plates/day with the remaining months seeing 600 plates/day. This allows for easy growth by up to 50% without the need for additional space!

    Aside from the kitchen staff, there are 2 office staff and 2 packing specialists, as well as 25 part-time event workers. The seller does not prepare food, but does handle billing and meeting with prospective clients, who are 60% commercial and 40% residential. Of these clients, not one makes up more than 10% of sales.

    Looking to retire, the seller will finance 10% of the $382,000 purchase price. Contributing a 10% down payment of $38,200, a new owner could see a first year’s profit of $68,627 after debts.

  • Passive Ownership in Sports Restaurant

    The casual dining feel is blended with an Alpine ski lodge look, with pine booths and a large wood and stone awning around the bar.  Beer drinkers are treated to 19 drafts on tap, and 50 kegs are always kept ready in the 40x10 walk-in cooler.  Seating for 150 is spread between bar stools, booths and tables, and the 5,000-sq. ft. building feels even more spacious with the high, open ceilings.

    The current owner averages 20 hours/week managing 26 employees and helping out where needed.  There is a full-time manager in place who could easily handle these duties, but a part-time person would be needed to cover her days off.

    Open 7 days a week, patrons have an extensive food and spirits menu to choose from, and are quick to utilize the 40x20 outdoor patio when the weather is nice.

    A buyer paying 20% down ($113,000) would net $182,506 after debts the first year, representing a 161% return.  As the only bar in the neighborhood, a new owner could easily increase profits by capitalizing on nearby sporting event traffic.

Offices and a showroom are in a standalone, 18,000-sq. ft. space.
