SUMMARY PERFORMANCE SCORES

Based on your inputs, the Industry Financial Report calculates the percentage difference (variance) between client ratios and the industry average for the selected industry peer group. Your firm performance on each ratio is scored on a 1-5 scale (5 being best) for each year displayed in the report. The scoring approach depends on the specific scored ratio. You can find a detailed explanation for each at the end of this report.

The value of peer comparisons with your business depends on the accuracy and completeness of the firm financial information that is being entered. The more detail that you provide, the more comprehensive and meaningful the benchmark.

For each ratio, the score for those years selected from the most recent three calendar years is averaged and integrated into a Ratio Category Score. The Score for each of the four categories (Cash Flow/Solvency; Profitability; Efficiency; Debt-Risk) are then averaged to produce an Overall Score.

RATIO CATEGORIES

The Bizminer Industry Financial Report is based on selected financial ratios that are typically considered to be Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) which includes:

Cash Flow/Solvency: Cash Flow ratios indicate a company’s ability to meet various levels of demand on cash and easily obtainable cash resources against current and anticipated near-term payments due.

Profitability: Profitability ratios compare levels of return against various expense and balance sheet components to measure your performance against reasonable industry peer group standards, indicating bottom line performance,

Efficiency: Efficiency ratios measure your success in marshalling resources at hand to effectively manage various components of your business operations. These indicators often point most specifically toward actions that could enhance your bottom line.

Debt-Risk: Debt-Risk ratios assess the appropriateness of a firm’s level of debt against the ability to pay, as well as the risk of insolvency.


WORTH YOUR FOCUS:

Ratio Category scores are simply a reflection of the more focused individual ratios that they include. Any ratios that score below 3.0 should be examined closely for weaknesses in management or performance that could be improved with reasonable effort and expense. While you should work with a qualified advisor to obtain specific guidance, we’ve flagged these areas for attention:

Sources and Uses: The Sources and Uses of Funds table tests the accuracy of the balance sheet and distinguishes the sources of funds from their use. It is the basic worksheet preliminary to a formal cash flow statement examining the liquidity of a business. A multi-year industry benchmark common size balance sheet, which includes overlapped but not identical sets of firms in each year, is not well-suited for the presentation of a formal cash flow analysis.

About the Data

BizMiner data is widely accepted for industry analytical work, benchmarking, valuations, forensics and litigation. BizMiner content is accepted in US Tax Court (Bauer vs. IRS: T.C. Memo. 2012-156) and is utilized by state, provincial and national taxing agencies in the US and Canada.

Raw data analyzed for BizMiner reports is sourced from an array of the nation's government and private statistical sources. None of these raw data sources creates the final measures reflected in BizMiner industry profiles. In total, BizMiner accesses over a billion sourced data points from 15 million business operations for each of its twice annual updates covering a 3-5 year time series. Historical data and BizMiner algorithms are used to inform and test projections for non-reporting firms. Data elements are sourced specifically from:

  • IRS SOI Corporation Tax Book
  • IRS Statistics of Income
  • US Economic Census
  • US Census Quarterly Financial Reports
  • US Census County Business Patterns
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics Monthly Employment Reports
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics Monthly Unemployment Reports
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics Annual Wage Survey
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics Industry Productivity Reports
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics Price Indices
  • National Agricultural Statistical Service
  • US Census Quarterly Financial Reports
  • US Census Retail Trade Report
  • InfoGroup, Inc.
  • Credit Reporting Agencies
  • Business Directories
  • American Community Survey

While 100% firm coverage is desirable for analysis purposes, the greatest value of BizMiner reports rests in discerning patterns of activity, which are reflected in the large samples used to develop our reports. The overall current coverage of the databases surpasses 13 million active business operations at any point in time.

As is the case with any databases this large, some errors are inevitable. Some firms are missed and specific information on others is lacking from the database. Not all information received is uniform or complete, resulting in the need to develop projection algorithms for specific industry segments and metrics in some report series. No representation is made as to the accuracy of the databases utilized or the results of subsequent analyses. Neither the Brandow Company nor its resellers has undertaken independent primary research to confirm the accuracy of the data utilized in the Profile analyses. Neither the Brandow Company nor its resellers are responsible for conclusions drawn or decisions made based upon this data or analysis. In no event will the Brandow Company or its resellers be liable for any damages, direct, indirect, incidental or consequential resulting from the use of the information contained in BizMiner reports.

Our Approach to Scoring

Industry Financial reports offer two types of scoring. The Variance shown for each ratio measures the percentage difference between client ratios and the industry average for the selected industry, sales class and market. The Variance results in a Score of 1-5 (5 being best) for each year of each selected ratio. The application of the Variances to the Score depends on the specific ratio involved; in some cases (which we call Standard Scoring) higher is better; in some, lower (Reverse Scoring) is better; in a few, closest to the industry average (Balanced Scoring) is best. You can find the detailed approach for each Industry Financial ratio below.

For each ratio, the score for all selected years is averaged to determine the overall Ratio Score. The Ratio Scores for each of the four ratio categories (Cash flow/Solvency; Profitability; Efficiency; Debt-Risk) reflect the average Ratio Scores in each category. (P1 also provides Category Scores for each year as well as the average of all selected years.) The Overall Total Score on P1 of the Industry Financial report reflects the average of the Category Scores.



Scoring for ratios is calculated in one of three ways:

  • Standard (higher is generally better)
  • Reverse (lower is generally better)
  • Balanced (middle is generally good, too high or too low is not)

All three types are based on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being "best" and 1 being "worst". All percentages are shown as a deviation from the industry average.

Standard (basically higher is better)

  • +/-10% from average= 3
  • +11% to +20% above average= 4
  • >20% above average= 5
  • +11% to +20% below average= 2
  • >20% below average= 1

Reverse (lower is better)

  • +/-10% from average= 3
  • +11% to +20% above average= 2
  • >20% above average= 1
  • +11% to +20% below average= 4
  • >20% below average= 5

Balanced (middle is good, too high or too low is not)

  • +/-10% from average= 5
  • 11% to 15% above or below average= 4
  • +16% to +25% above or below average= 3
  • 25%-30% above or below average= 2
  • 30% above or below average= 1

The corresponding applications for each ratio are highlighted below. Individual ratio scores are averaged for all selected years.

About the Vestimate

Bizminer’s Vestimate™ enterprise value is our estimated market value for an individual business operation. Vestimates ™ are calculated for more than 12 million US business establishments and updated monthly. The Vestimate™ is a starting point in determining a business value but is not an appraisal or valuation.

Vestimates™ are based on data and projections applied to our proprietary calculations. Bizminer develops sales data for millions of US business operations using sales per employee, industry pricing and productivity data along with enterprise-level employment reports. Our content has been accepted in US Tax Court and utilized by thousands of accounting, valuation and banking professionals as well as dozens of university business libraries.

We marry that content to more than 28,000 business transactions to create median and quartile estimates of worth derived from Business Valuation Resources Pratt’s Stats database. In almost every case, at least two different types of multiples are averaged to create median, quartile 1 and quartile 3 value estimates in four different sales class groups. The median values are available in our Free Vestimate™ tool, while more robust, customizable business value content and searches and values are available in Vestimate™Plus.

Importantly, the Vestimate™ only reflects Bizminer’s estimate of the current worth of a business operation given the data available to us. For example, we do not know the Owner Earnings of every business enterprise, and use the industry sales class average in our calculations instead; the actual value of firms with significantly lower or higher Owner Earnings will likewise vary from calculations of sales multiples that rely upon those metrics.

You should not use a Vestimate™ in place of a valuation, though you can share it with business brokers or valuation professionals. Bizminer does not offer the Vestimate™ as the basis of any specific business-related or other financial transaction. You will not be able to use a Vestimate™ to secure a business or personal loan. Our data sources may be incomplete or incorrect; nor have we physically researched or inspected many important details necessary to the valuation of a specific enterprise. The Vestimate™ does not consider the market environment details nor the idiosyncrasies of a firm’s performance that can influence the actual value or selling price.

We encourage business buyers, sellers, owners and browsers to enhance their understanding of the value of any enterprise before making decisions or taking action. The Vestimate™ is a modeled informational tool, not a guide to action. For that we recommend obtaining an appraisal from a business broker, a valuation from a certified valuation professional, or both.
