Cashflow Analysis

Asking Price

The asking price is determined using a cash flow and asset methodology. Cash flow is the sum of net income from the business plus any non-cash expenses, non-recurring items, and any seller’s personal expenses. The asset methodology takes into account what it could cost to open a similar business in equipment and square feet. A multi-factor multiplier is applied to the cash flow based on the condition of the business and the asset value is added to that result.

For this business, a three-year average cash flow is applied making the business price more favorable to the buyer. The multiplier applied in this case is 3x, is the standard multiplier for bakeries plus a steeply discounted asset value.

The SDE value considers time to build up the goodwill and customer base. If you were to build out a similar space with like equipment it could cost upwards of $750,000 or more.
