The business was purchased by the current owners in 2001. The primary focus of the business had been on personal PC repair, but the new owners saw a need for small business networking services as well. There is also a market for sales and installation of security and surveillance equipment, so they have expanded into this market as well. Employees The owner works approximately 40 hours per week in the business. The owner has had as many as 3 FT employees and one part time employee in the past. Due to the time it took to deal with employee issues, he currently has one part time employee and himself. Products and Services Offered The company offers a variety of services including small business networking, home networking and wireless networking for commercial and residential. They also offer repair service on PC and MacIntosh computers. Another source of revenues is the sale and installation of security and surveillance systems. Customers and Markets Served The company’s customers are approximately 70% business and 30% individuals, all located within 25 miles of the office. Financing This business qualifies for SBA financing, since it has good books and records, and is priced appropriately for its Discretionary Earnings. See the Test for Reasonableness of Purchase Price calculations by clicking on the More Info on Business tab. Seller will consider providing the appropriate seller financing for an SBA loan if required. The seller estimates that $10,000 would be needed for working capital. Most lenders would be happy to loan that much or more in working capital for this business, as the cash flow from the business would fully support it. Down payment for the business would be approximately $21,570, assuming an SBA loan, sales price of the business of $199,000, $10,000 borrowed for working capital, and loan expenses added to the SBA loan of $6,703. 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); 2) A much longer term than a seller would offer (typically 10 years); and 3) A lower interest rate than a seller would typically offer (currently around 6%). Often a conventional loan is not a possibility in financing the purchase of a business, because the cash flow of most successful businesses is worth more than the value of the business’ assets, so there is insufficient collateral to secure a conventional loan. SBA loans are based on the cash flow of the business and for the most part are made irrespective of the amount of collateral available. Customer Concentration No customers represent more than 10% of total sales.
