Hi everyone, just thinking how this sits with you as I am seriously contemplating the current deal. Here's the short and skinny on the deal. A guy is currently trying to get out of the lawn and landscape business (duhh) and wants to sell his current account list of 41 accounts (37 mowing + 20 fert, 3 of which are fert only). The company gross's a good amount and the aquisition cost would be 30% of the gross profit this company pulls in for the year. Is 30% a good deal? The gentleman sounds knowledgeable, and has assured me that I should see minimal drop in clientele if I take over. Basically what it boils down to is people don't care who mows their yard as long as it gets done, and done right. Now I have figured this out, since it will be about 2.5 months till I pay this off with profit, on top of the fact that I will incur all expenses to get the accounts done with little to no profit as well makes this deal more like 40% cost on gross. I think the reason I am so heavily considering this would be I want the work. I don't have the work yet, and am in need and am willing to spend the money to make sure I have it, so I am not thinking clearly and would like some objective opinions on the matter to help steer me in the right path. Sorry for the long post, thanks for reading!
