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, the 2019 cash flow was used with a prescribed multiple of 3.75. With this information, the computation is as follows:
$1,456,295 x 3.75 = $5,461,106
The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $5,450,000.
Purchase Price: $5,450,000
12.5%Buyer Down Payment: $681,250
or Equity Roll: $681,250
75%Bank Loan: $4,087,500
Seller financing 6-year term at a rate of 6.0% equals a monthly loan payment of $10,034.
Bank loan 8-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $53,716.
After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 12.5% down payment of $681,250 would retain a profit of $691,301, which results in an 101% 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 $5,450,000 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.
