Transfer Consulting

What is Pharmacy Transfer Consulting?

PRS’s Transfer Consulting handles every aspect of transferring ownership.  Our services benefit both the buyer and seller of a Pharmacy and may include the following:

    • Assists with Pharmacy Licensing procedures.
    • Provides specific directions and guidance to help coordinate the Pharmacy acquisition.
    • We help to maintain Pharmacy compliance with state, federal and other rules and regulations during the transfer phase.
    • PRS is available to advise and consult with legal counsel on Pharmacy-specific items to ensure a smooth and efficient ownership transfer.
I am so glad that I contacted PRS when it came time to transition our pharmacy from one generation to the next. PRS provided me with a specific plan so that our 111-year-old pharmacy will remain in our family with no disruption to service. There are many regulatory procedures that need to be navigated when it comes to working with boards of pharmacy, the DEA, and other agencies. And, then there are the PBM's and their arcane policies and strict requirements. PRS researched everything based upon the specific state in which we are licensed. They provided us with an easy to follow virtual road map. I recommend them to everyone.

What is Pharmacy Valuation?

What the Pharmacy is actually worth is one of the most important things to consider when you are buying or selling a Pharmacy.  The following points are some things you need to know:
    • The 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 considering a loan request from a buyer, therefore having the correct data is crucial.
    • Many Independent Pharmacies have diversified revenue streams and earnings need to be valued, not simply on revenue and prescription counts but on other factors.
      1. For instance, 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.
