Many changes have occurred in the business acquisition market in the month of March 2020. One of the first to have a positive impact was the prime lending rate going down to just 3.25%. While the interest rate on SBA loans are higher obviously, they are based on the prime rate, thus making lending more affordable for the buyers for businesses. Lower interest rates tend have an upward impact on business valuations as well, but we haven't seen that in this environment, yet. Today, we received a note from one of our lending partners that the SBA may be looking at waiving the 3% SBA Guaranty Fee short-term, which would further save the buyer significant money on their acquisition. As the market comes back, this will be huge for people looking to acquire their next business venture.
Small privately-owned businesses account for over 90% of local businesses. They continue to be the engine of economic growth and development. Because of that, it is critical to our economy as a whole that the successful companies continue in operation. That business's employees, customers and partners rely on each other for each of their business's success. A business should never cease merely because of the age or health of the owner. Let us help.
We have a diverse business background ourselves. It is important to know the details of each industry. We may consider a few others, but we prefer to focus on manufacturing, fabrication, CNC machining, assembly, screen printing, wholesale supply, e-commerce, automotive repair, healthcare/medical, daycare, pet services, cleaning, construction trades, and property management companies.
We would like to be all things to all people, but the fact is, we are more knowledgeable on the industries above than others like restaurants, bars, gas stations, hair salons, and such. However, we can recommend other business brokers that specialize in those areas.
Most of the businesses that we list for sale are Main Street or Middle Market Companies, ranging from a few hundred thousand in revenue to several million in revenue. We do tend to focus on companies with positive cashflow. We may consult with business owners that are experiencing a negative scenario due to a recent health issue or other concern and we will help everywhere we can, but the majority of businesses sold are profitable. We don't really have a minimum cashflow number, but we do prefer those with net owner incomes of over $80,000. When in doubt, let's talk. We are here to serve you.
