How does the deal structure look like?
We only strive for mutually fair deals and want you to profit from the growth of your Amazon store in the long run. That's why we strive for deals with incremental earn-out participation (a kind of additional bonus) up to 24 months. How does this work?
I) You get a one-time payment (exit): Usually a multiple on your EBITDA AND
II) An earn-out participation on the EBITDA or revenue of your store.
Will there be any costs for me?
The entire process is free of charge at all times. There are also no costs should no deal be closed.
How much can I reveal about myself?
All information will be treated with absolute discretion and professionalism. Feel free to ask us for an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) at any time.
Do I need a lawyer/broker?
No, you do not need a broker or lawyer for our processes.All contracts were worked out with specialists and will be refined together with you on your situation. However, we can totally understand, if you wish to include someone to support you in this concern. We are only interested in deals where both sides are satisfied. This is one of the reasons why we stick to our special deal structure, where you should participate in the success of your shop in the long run.
How is the value of my store determined?
Important factors in the evaluation of your shop are: Revenue (on Amazon) and EBITDA margin, marketing performance, product, product rankings, supply chain, age of your store as well as your Amazon store appearance & customer reviews.
Where can I find my data needed to evaluate my shop?
You can find all the data you need in your Amazon Seller board. Feel free to contact us if you need help here or have further questions. Usually an excerpt from your sales dashboard tool is enough.
How can I determine my EBITDA margin?
EBITDA is profit after deduction of all variable and fixed costs (all direct business related costs that are needed for shop operation). Without deduction of taxes, interest, depreciations/appreciations and entrepreneurial salary.
Why do we use the EBITDA margin to evaluate your shop?
Costs for investments are not taken into account here. This is correct in this case because it makes it easier for us to see how profitable the pure production of the core business is. Investments, etc. might vary for us and need to be considered individually.
