This business qualifies for SBA financing, since it has good books and records, and is priced attractively for its Discretionary Earnings.

The seller estimates that $40,000 would be needed for working capital. Buyers should consult their accountant if necessary, to determine if that is an appropriate amount of working capital for this business. 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 and real estate would be approximately $172,245, assuming an SBA loan, sales price of the business of $1,034,000, sales price of the real estate at $595,000, $40,000 borrowed for working capital, and loan expenses added to the SBA loan of $53,445.

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 for a business, 25 years for real estate, per SBA rules); and
3) A lower interest rate than a seller would typically offer (currently around 9.5%).

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.
