Pros and Cons:

(1) Consistent Financial Performance: Since 2016, the Company has regularly achieved $2.2M-$2.4M in revenue and has produced an average of $387K in seller’s discretionary earnings over the five years to 2020. Included in the Company’s internally developed spreadsheets is a scheduling system. The scheduling system allows the Company to track and plan the machine hours of each of its machines. This enables the Company to maximize the use and profitability of every machine. (2) Established Quoting Process: The Company has a well-defined process for quoting jobs that use a combination of administrative steps, custom spreadsheets, and algorithms. Every item from materials and outside services to inside machining costs is quoted in the master estimating template developed internally by the Company. The master estimating template then generates project costs, markup, man-hours, machine hours by machine type, hourly machine rates, and shipping costs. A standardized quote is then generated detailing the total cost, timeline, payment terms, and assumptions made to arrive at the quotation. (3) Substantial Equipment Base: The Company is equipped with a substantial base of machining equipment. The diverse equipment base has a wide variety of work envelopes, allowing the Company to work on a multitude of different projects, regardless of the size. The estimated market value of machining equipment is approximately $1.0M. The total market value of the Company’s assets is estimated to be $1.1M.

Opportunities and Growth:

(1) Recruit From Local Technical Programs: Located within close proximity of the Company is a community college that offers many technical programs to prepare students for a successful career. One of the programs offered is an Applied Technology and Apprenticeship program where students can earn a CNC Machinist Certificate with a track towards an associate degree in Manufacturing Technology. The Company has focused on hiring experienced candidates by offering competitive wages. New ownership could create a relationship with the local program’s career center to target these young but motivated individuals. (2) Expand Equipment Base: While the Company already maintains a substantial equipment base, machines have a finite number of operable hours in a day. To increase revenue beyond current levels, new ownership could expand the Company’s current equipment base to increase capacity and service offerings while decreasing outsourced work. There is room for an additional 2-3 machines within the current facility, but an expansion of the facility may be necessary depending on the size of investment made in new equipment and the size of the new equipment purchased. The real estate includes ample space to double the size of the current facility. (3) Website and Marketing Improvements: Website and marketing improvements such as optimizing the Company’s website for Google Ads, improving page loading times, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) could bolster the Company’s overall marketing presence.

Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

There are all sorts of reasons people choose to sell companies. Nonetheless, the genuine factor vs the one they say to you might be 2 totally different things. For instance, they may state "I have a lot of other responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these reasons are valid. But, for some, these might just be justifications to attempt to conceal the reality of transforming demographics, increased competitors, current reduction in earnings, or a variety of other reasons. This is why it is extremely important that you not depend completely on a seller's word, yet instead, use the vendor's solution together with your total due diligence. This will repaint an extra realistic image of the business's present scenario.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations

If the current company is in debt, which many companies are, then you will have reason to consider this when valuating/preparing your deal. Lots of businesses finance loans with the purpose of covering things such as stock, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Keep in mind that occasionally this can suggest that profit margins are too tight. Many organisations fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. Along with debts, there may likewise be future obligations to take into consideration. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business might have existing agreements with vendors that have to be fulfilled or may lead to fines if terminated early.

Understanding the Customer Base, Competition and Area Demographics

Particular elements such as new competitors sprouting up around the area, roadway building and construction, and also staff turn over can affect repeat clients and also adversely impact future profits. One important thing to think about is the location of the business. Is it in a highly trafficked shopping center, or is it hidden from the main road? Obviously, the more people that see the business often, the greater the possibility to develop a returning consumer base. A last thought is the basic area demographics. Is the business located in a largely inhabited city, or is it situated on the edge of town? Exactly how might the local typical home earnings influence future earnings potential?
