This business is priced at a low multiple of 2.75 with a fully collateralized loan! A 10% down payment of $68,000 returns $159,364 in the first year after debt payments – a 234% return on investment. With $650k in assets and $1.7M in backlog, this specializes in designing and producing office furniture for dealerships selling to mid to high-end offices nationwide. Products include reception stations, conference/boardroom tables, case goods, and custom storage. Established for over 20 years in Eastern Pennsylvania, they have seen year-over-year growth in sales since 2017.  The highly skilled team includes 6 product/project engineers, 24 shop personnel (1 shop foreman, 2 department supervisors, 3 craftsmen, 4 machine operators, 3 crafts-people assistants, 2 sanders, 4 assembly, and 5 general labor), 1 bookkeeper, and 3 purchasing/customer service staff, plus several contracted independent territory sales reps. Four of their shop/department leaders have a combined total of over 120 years of experience. The two owners currently serve as President and Vice-President of the company; one oversees engineering & production, the other manages the sales division. The company operates out of a 30,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant and 1,000 sq. ft. of office space.

 

All furniture is offered in veneer, wood, laminate, metal, glass, or stone, allowing ample opportunity for their clients to custom order exactly what they need for their office.  Strong relationships with dealers in the area is an invaluable asset to this company. Hiring more sales reps, expanding to more dealers, and working to create a larger presence in locations like New York and Boston would certainly lead to continued growth.

Valuation Details

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 prescribed multiple is determined 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 multiplier.

For this business, the 2019 cash flow was used with a prescribed multiple of 2.75.  With this information, the computation is as follows:

$247,051         x          2.75     =          $679,390

The fair market value found above positions the business list price at $680,000.

Funding Example

Purchase Price:                             $680,000

10%Buyer Down Payment:        $68,000

10%Seller Financing:                  $68,000

80%Bank Loan:                         $544,000

Seller financing 5-year term at a rate of 4.50% equals a monthly loan payment of $1,268.

Bank loan 10-year term at a rate of 6% equals a monthly loan payment of $6,040.

After business expenses and loan payments, a buyer with a 10% down payment of $68,000 would retain a profit of $159,364, which results in a 234% return on investment in the first year.

A lender is required to have a minimum 1.25 coverage ratio for any business loans extended. At a proposed purchase price of $680,000 with the terms listed above, the coverage ratio is 2.82.

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.
