The Firm 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 3 year average cash flow was used with a prescribed multiple is 3.75. With this information, the computation is as follows:
$1,090,816 x 3.75 = $4,090,560
The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $4,050,000.
Purchase Price: $4,050,000
12.5% Buyer Down Payment: $475,000
20% Seller Financing: $760,000
67.5% Bank Loan: $2,565,000
Seller financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $14,169.
Bank loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $33,708.
After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 12.5% down payment of $475,000 would retain a profit of $516,295, which results in a 108% 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 $4,050,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 1.9.
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.
