Business Overview:

This is a perfect opportunity for an aspiring, undercapitalized woodworking entrepreneur to purchase a profitable, modestly priced woodworking business for 20% down and 80% seller financing. No need for banking on this deal.

This 33 year old business is located in a two story, older building which (a) has 3100 square feet per floor, (b) is included in the sale price, and (c) has been remodeled by the seller a few times over the past 30 years. The facility is located in a trendy section of Lansing (MI) just minutes from the Michigan State Capitol.

This smaller business has averaged annual revenues of $515,000 over the past six years. The average, annual SDE (seller’s discretionary earnings – the historical cash flow available to pay the buyer and service the seller note) over the same period has been nearly $80,000. After selling his business to only the second owner in its history, the founder-owner-seller plans to help the buyer with appropriate post-close transition training after which the seller will be retiring.

In addition to the goodwill of the business, the sale includes the following:

1. 6,200 square foot building which was given a written, third party market assessment of $320,000 earlier in 2021.
2. $255,000 (cost basis) of machinery, equipment, fixed assets and a 16’ cube van
3. $15,000 (cost basis) of active inventory.

With a wealth of fixed assets included in the listing price, this business is “priced to sell” at $378,000. The seller is looking for 20% ($75,000) down and plans to carry the balance ($303,000) in a 10-year, 5.0% seller note.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to buy a fully equipped woodworking business with annual sales exceeding $500,000, a positive cash flow, and a “cool” facility (included in the sale), all for $75,000 down and a “buyer friendly” seller note. Remember, there is no banking required on this deal. And for an enthusiastic buyer who lacks the $75,000 down payment, the seller would consider leasing the building.

Opportunities would seem to abound for an eager and aggressive new owner-operator starting with creating a website (the business has never had one) and contacting new potential customers in the region.
