The Firm Advisors used a cash flow valuation methodology to determine the purchase price of the business.
Cash flow is the sum of business net income plus any owner perks and any non-onward expenses. Then we prescribe a multiple based on 20 parameter which valuate the health of the business. For this valuation, we used the 2019 Cash Flow value making the business price much more favorable to the buyer.
The formula used is as follows:
Cash Flow x Prescribed Multiple = Fair Market Value
With this information, the computation is as follows:
$374,772 x 3.2 = $1,199,270
Purchase Price: $1,200,000
