What is Pharmacy Valuation?

Valuation is one of the most important things to consider when buying or selling a pharmacy:

  • Value of a business is tied to the expectation of future earnings and cash flow.
  • A financial model rewards owners for the historical cash flows they have built and shows a potential buyer the proven gross revenue potential.
  • Banks use a financial model focused on cash flow when consider a loan request from a buyer.
  • Many Independent Pharmacies have diversified revenue streams and earnings need to be valued, not simply on revenue and prescription counts.
  • A financial model focused on EBITDA and NOI with a multiplier most fairly values the business.

Our Pharmacy Valuation will ensure both the buyer and the seller are getting a fair, unbiased review of the Pharmacy’s performance.
