History/Operations of Business
The owner started the business in 2009. Most of the company’s business is done within Springfield and the surrounding 50 miles.

Discretionary Earnings
The seller is representing that the Discretionary Earnings for the business for 2020 were $334,505, and that they can prove it to a buyer and their accountant's satisfaction. That amount is AFTER deducting the estimated yearly debt service for the purchase of the real estate. For details about the significance of Discretionary Earnings to a business' value and future and how they are determined, click on the link elsewhere on this page.

Growth Opportunities
The seller believes that the sales and profitability of the business could be improved by:
1) Adding a salesperson
2) Taking on more work in one of the services they offer, which would probably require hiring a new employee
3) Add social media advertising. Currently, the business does none.

Facilities
The business operates from an office and shop that is centrally located to its customers and which is owned by the business. The real estate is available through VR’s sister company Professional Real Estate, LLC for $595,000.

Financing
This business qualifies for SBA financing, since it has good books and records, and is priced appropriately for its Discretionary Earnings. The advantages of a business being able to be financed with an SBA-guaranteed loan are:

1) A lower down payment than a seller would require were they providing financing (typically only 10% of the Project Cost is required by SBA rules);
2) A much longer term than a seller would offer (typically 10 years per SBA rules); and
3) A lower interest rate than a seller would typically offer (currently around 6.0%).

SPECIAL SBA FINANCING TERMS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
The Covid Relief Act signed by the president in December of 2020 provides for the first three months of payments on new SBA loans to be made by the federal government (up to $9,000 per month) for loans approved from February 1 to September 30 of 2021. In addition, the SBA borrower fees are eliminated through that date.

The elimination of the borrower fees on this business amounts to savings amounts to approximately $33,000 of expense that will not be added to the amount of the loan.

The elimination of the first 3 months of payments on the SBA loan amounts to savings of $27,000 on the purchase of the business (3 months x $9,000).

Reason for Selling
The owner is moving out of state.

Training
The seller will provide 30 days of dedicated training at no additional cost.

Employees
One full time employee serves as general manager. There are 9 other full time employees.

Calculation of Price of Business
The price of the business was determined by a business valuation performed by the broker, called a Broker’s Opinion of Value in which the Most Probable Selling Price (MPSP) was determined.

The MPSP for this business was determined to be $861,000. A copy of the valuation will accompany the Confidential Business Review of the business.

The seller has placed the business on the market for less than it’s valuation in order to sell the business as quickly as possible. He has sold his home here and his wife and family have already made the move out of state, and the seller wishes to join them as soon as possible.

Time is of the Essence
This is a well-run business with good profitability, and which is priced very attractively, so it will sell quickly. Buyers who believe it might be a possible fit for them should not delay in taking the next step, which is to meet with the owner and see the facility and equipment.
