This business is priced for an immediate sale due to the seller’s health issues. The business is priced as a sale of assets in place and not based on cash flow. This is a turn around situation with everything in place (see list below) to turn this business back to what it was just a few years ago. The business has averaged $1.4M - $1.8M in gross revenue in recent years. The figures in this ad are based on 2017. 2018 revenues are down and as per the seller, the seller has elected to take his foot off the pedal and has not offered certain services to his customers as he has done in the past. He has done this by choice to limit his involvement in the business due to his health situation. There has been limited if any marketing put in place recently including not attending trade shows for the last several years. As per the seller, a buyer can easily bring back the parts of the business that he shut down including private label work, wholesale sales, etc. etc. (seller to discuss further). The seller will also provide ample training (3 – 6 weeks) at no cost and will consider staying on longer based on a short 2 or 3 day work week to help bring the business (seller to discuss further).

This is an excellent opportunity for someone to take over this well-known brand in the sportswear space within the apparel industry with everything in place. The purchase price includes:

- A large list of apparel manufacturing equipment
- $250,000+/- of inventory which includes finished products and raw material
- A well-respected and well-known trademarked brand
- (3) well positioned, newer, professional websites
- Amazon (Gold) storefront with multiple brand registries
- Large database of customers (both wholesale and retail)
- Trained employees including an operations manager who will stay on

As per the seller, the asking price is well below replacement cost and includes many other items that will be discussed during a conference call. SBA or seller finance is not available for this transaction at this price. PLEASE NOTE, this business is being priced for an immediate sale and as a “Turn-Around” situation or sale of assets in place below replacement cost.
