Business Overview

NICHE MARKET IN THE AUTOMOTIVE/ ENGINEERING INDUSTRY

The business was founded by the vendor in 2004. Quality of service and workmanship were essential in establishing its reputation and it is now seen as the market leader. However, the business makes and excellent profit while keeping its pricing highly competitive.

SELF-RENEWING ORDERS MEANS STEADY DEMAND
Vehicles are in constant use, and thus subject to wear on all moving parts. These need to be repaired and eventually replaced. This creates a self-renewing market for its products and services. 95% of the business current clientele situated in the metropolitan area, 4% in country areas and 1% from out-of-state. Because the market is large and demand is strong, the business’s top customer represents only 3% of total sales.

INDISPENSABLE INDUSTRY
The business provides a critical service and products, necessary to keep vehicles on the road – customised solutions for the repair and replacement of automotive, light truck, industrial, heavy haulage and earthmoving.

LOW STOCK LEVEL = LOW WORKING CAPITAL REQUIREMENT
Considering the per-unit value of the parts this business supplies, a stock level of just $60,000 is considered low. Carrying high values of stock will demand higher working capital requirements and unnecessary money tied up during the term of ownership. 

70% CASH SALES
Excellent cashflow business with 70% of sales paid for in cash which further minimises working capital. 

GROWTH POTENTIAL
The business has been managed very conservatively because the current owner is comfortable with its present size, and the fact that it has always been busy. That leaves scope for the new owner to grow the business should they wish.

NO ADVERTISING REQUIRED TO GENERATE CURRENT REVENUES
The business undertakes no advertising beyond its website, which was first developed in 2005 and has not been updated since 2012. It currently generates only about three percent of total sales, but the business has not invested in any search engine optimisation to enhance its effectiveness.

GREAT AFTER SALE SUPPORT
The vendor will provide full training after settlement date for six hours per day for eight weeks without remuneration to fully train the purchaser in all day to day operations and would be happy to work part time as a consultant if the new owner felt they needed a longer period of assistance
