Alarm and Life Safety Business

Not Disclosed, Not Disclosed

This amazing business services the Arizona & Nevada Market and surrounding areas for special Customers. In less than 8 years they have been able to kick Gross Sales up to $3.4 Million with a solid Net of over $700,000, ($600,000 on tax returns and $100,000 of identified “Owners Benefits”). The following are the key elements that should make this business very attractive to the right Buyer.ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE ASSETS OF ANY ALARM-SECURITY BUSINESS IS THEIR MONITORED ALARM ACCOUNTS AND ANNUAL SERVICE CONTRACTS. This company has about 200 monitored systems that produce about $45 per month, or $108,000 annually. One of the greatest values in buying a business like this one, is the foundation to add an additional 30 or more new monitored customers each month. This adds about $30,000 of Equity Gain each month. You will not find this real asset value anywhere on the balance sheet. You should be adding a minimum of $360,000 of Equity to this business each year, just from the R.M.R. (Reoccurring Monthly Revenue). The New Owner will want to invest time adjusting the Business Plan to do much better in this area of the Business. This Business now gets the Inspection & Monitoring from Fire Alarms, Fire Sprinklers, Video surveillance and many other required Inspection Monitoring services including Residential monitoring service. Residential Fire Detection Systems is a growing part of their Business.THE FOUNDATION OF THEIR BUSINESS IS GOING AFTER THE INTEGRATION OF SYSTEMS FOR THEIR LARGEST CUSTOMERS. When they get their foot in the door selling their Tele-Data Cabling, or other Products & Services, then it is easy to get their customer to add other services. The Life Safety Industries collectively have about 50 “Profit Centers”. The average Life Safety Business has 8 to 12 “Profit Centers” on their “Profit & Loss” statements. This Seller has 16 and would like to add about 8 more in the next 2 years. An example that you will want to investigate would be his “Fire Alarm Group” (2 NICET Certified technicians). These 2 Technicians focus on doing the required annual Inspections. When they do Inspections, in most cases repairs or minor additions to the systems need to be made. These technicians sell up-grades, monitoring and other Company products and Services. Presently this is on the books as one Profit Center, the new owner will want the Fire Alarm Group to build 4 profit centers and should add another technician every year to keep up with the new Business. One of Dennis Riley’s Associates in Florida who Installs Fire Sprinkler Systems, added a Fire Alarm Division to his Business 6 years ago, he now has 7 “Route Sales-tech Trucks” on the road producing about $1,750,000 annually, approximately $250,000 of production for each truck on the road.THEY ARE DOING WELL WITH THEIR VIDEO-CCTV BUSINESS.
