Business Description

Multiple Location Standard / Non-Standard Auto Agency Tech Driven! – This dynamic agency with 2 locations utilizes a scalable marketing system to produce approximately 1000 policies per month. A 13-year-old agency with a strong book of business, licensed in multiple states. 8 licensed producers with a relatively low turnover. Paperless and technology-driven, with heavy lead flow due to consistent and effective advertising. Most policies on EFT. Great quality control and good relationships with carriers.

NDA required for first round due diligence package.

Detailed Information

  • Employees: 10
  • Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E): Included in asking price
  • Facilities: 2 offices located in retail centers – 1 in San Diego 1, in the Greater Phoenix area. Long term lease in place for San Diego office. Phoenix area office lease does expire in 2019, so it could stay open or be closed with this sale, depending on the Buyer’s ideal plan. A small number of clients come into each office to pay bills, but most business is done online, through email, and through text, so both offices are relocatable.
  • Competition: Plenty of competition in the standard and non-standard auto insurance space. This Company is very well positioned with advertising, online presence, and brand recognition. Rapid response to inquiries and a high level of customer service make this Company a strong player in the space.
  • Growth & Expansion: This is an excellent roll-up opportunity for an existing agency that can take advantage of cross-selling opportunities. An owner-operator who wants to take over the agency as-is can sustainably grow by adding producers, potentially adding an additional marketing channel, and continuing to take excellent care of prospects and clients.
  • Financing: If the price and deal structure are right.
  • Support & Training: As needed.
  • Reason for Selling: Other business Interests.

Competitive Landscape

Low-interest rates, sluggish premium growth, and rising catastrophe losses are putting downward pressure on margins for insurance agencies and brokerages. Soft market conditions drive consolidation in the industry as companies look to maximize revenue growth.

While the traditional intermediation model remains dominant worldwide, direct-to-consumer digital distribution of insurance policies threatens brokerage sales in many established and emerging markets. Companies also face growing competition from banks, financial advisers, and nontraditional distributors.

To win business, agencies rely on marketing, client referrals, and customer service. Name recognition, connections with more insurers, and the ability to craft more complex insurance packages are benefits of belonging to large brokerage networks. Small agencies may compete by specializing in a specific product line or customer group.

When the economy contracts, demand for insurance falls as consumer income and commercial activity decline. During periods of economic difficulty, smaller agencies may branch into more diversified fields to build business. Despite the prominence of large companies in the commercial segment, the US industry remains highly fragmented: the largest 50 firms account for about 25% of revenue. – (source: Dunn & Bradstreet First Research)

Bright Outlook

As a very well-run agency with aggressive advertising and a streamlined sales process, this is an excellent acquisition as an add-on for a larger company or for an owner operator that wants to step into a business that is already profitable.

The Seller suggests that the Buyer of this Company continue the same practices already in place, add salespeople, increase cross-selling, and if possible, apply economies of scale to lower costs and improve outreach. A deep dive into the financial history of this Company will show the tremendous growth that current systems have made possible over what the Company was doing before the current Owner acquired it. We see a very bright outlook for the new Owner who takes it from here.

Competitive Advantage

The Company believes that customer service and quick response are key to retaining and gaining new customers. They rely heavily on technology to reach the customer fast through an auto dialer and auto texting.

Because the Company has appointments with so many carriers, agents are able to very quickly find the best possible rate for a prospect. The combination of the large product inventory and quick response customer service, along with continuous advertising, all contribute to this Company’s competitive advantage.

In consideration of the acknowledgements and covenants of Buyer contained herein, and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by Buyer, Buyer agrees as follows:

1. DEFINITION OF “CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION”:

The term “Confidential Information” shall mean any and all information communicated, furnished, or disclosed, in whatever form, fashion, or medium, to Buyer regarding or related in any way or fashion to the Seller or to the Business which is proprietary and confidential to Seller, including without limitation the fact that the Business is for sale; all financial, database, production, marketing, scientific, statistical, research, operational, technical, and pricing information; business knowledge and know-how; business methods; business procedures, processes, and techniques; business manuals; manufacturing processes, procedures, and techniques; ideas; discoveries; inventions; developments; correspondence; records; data; databases; contracts; contract terms; vendor information; contractor information; customer lists; employee lists; and any other information made known to Buyer: (a) from any inspection, examination, or other review of the books, records, assets, liabilities, processes, or production methods of Seller; (b) from any communication with Seller or Seller’s broker, directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents, suppliers, vendors, customers or representatives; (c) during any and all visits to Seller’s premises; or (d) through disclosure or discovery in any other manner. Confidential Information shall also mean and include any information, data, or documents prepared by Buyer that incorporate, are based upon or arise from or as a result of any Confidential Information. Confidential Information shall not include information that, (a) is or becomes generally available to the public, (b) was known to Buyer on a nonconfidential basis prior to its disclosure to Buyer by the Seller or Seller’s Representatives, or (c) is independently developed by Buyer or its Representatives without the use of or reference to any Confidential Information.

2. NON-DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION:

Buyer shall use the Confidential Information only for the sole purpose of evaluating the possible purchase by Buyer of all or part of the stock or assets of Seller, and shall not make use of the Confidential Information, in whole or in part, for any other purpose whatsoever. Buyer further agrees to keep confidential all of the Confidential Information and to take all reasonable steps to preserve the confidential and proprietary nature of such Confidential Information. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that all Confidential Information furnished hereunder shall be and remain the property of Seller. Buyer further agrees not to disclose or permit access to any Confidential Information, without Seller’s prior written consent, to anyone other than Buyer’s legal counsel, accountants, lenders, or other agents or advisors (“Buyer Consultants”) to whom disclosure or access is necessary for Buyer to evaluate the Business. Disclosure of the Confidential Information shall be made to such Buyer Consultants only for the sole purpose of evaluating the possible purchase by Buyer of all or part of the stock or assets of Seller, and Buyer represents and warrants that each such Buyer Consultant has agreed, prior to its receipt of Confidential Information, to abide and be bound fully by all terms and conditions of this Agreement to the same extent as Buyer so agrees and is bound. Neither Buyer nor Buyer Consultants shall use or permit the use of Confidential Information in any manner whatsoever, except as may be required for Buyer to evaluate its potential acquisition of the Business or as may be required by legal process. Buyer expressly agrees Buyer shall be responsible for any breach of this Agreement by Buyer Consultants, or by any of its or Buyer Consultants’ officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents, and representatives, and any of the above. If the Buyer does not purchase the Business, Buyer shall, at Seller’s sole direction, either destroy or return to Broker all information provided to Buyer, including without limitation Confidential Information, and Buyer shall not retain any copy, reproduction, or record thereof.

3. BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY AND DISCLAIMER OF BROKER’S LIABILITY:

Broker has received information about the Business from the Seller, which information may include, but is not limited to, tax returns, financial statements, equipment lists, and facility leases. Based on information provided by Seller, Broker often prepares a summary description of the Business, which may include a cash flow projection, an adjusted income statement, or a seller discretionary cash flow statement. Buyer understands that Broker does not audit or verify any information given to Broker, nor does Broker make any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, or fitness for a particular purpose of the information, including without limitation the Confidential Information, of Seller. Broker does not in any way guarantee future business performance of the Seller or of the Business. Buyer is solely responsible to examine and investigate the Business, its assets, liabilities, financial statements, tax returns, and any other information and facts which might influence Buyer’s purchase decision or the price Buyer is willing to pay. Any decision by Buyer to purchase the Business shall be based solely on Buyer’s own investigation and that of Buyer’s Buyer Consultants, and not upon any information or investigation (if any) provided by Broker. Any costs, fees, and expenses incurred from consultations with advisors including but not limited to Buyer Consultants shall be at the sole expense of Buyer and Buyer’s exclusive responsibility to pay. Broker shall not have any liability or responsibility to Buyer and its officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents, and representatives, or to Buyer Consultants and their officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents, and representatives, or any of them, arising from, regarding, or related in any fashion to the use of any Confidential Information furnished to Buyer hereunder. Buyer, on behalf of itself and its officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents, and representatives, as well as on behalf of Buyer Consultants and their officers, directors, employees, advisors, agents, and representatives, or any of them, expressly disclaims, releases, and holds Broker harmless from and against any and all liability that does or may arise from or relate to (a) the use of the Confidential Information, (b) any errors therein or omissions therefrom.

 
 

4. NON-CIRCUMVENTION AGREEMENT:

The Seller has entered into an agreement providing that Seller shall pay a fee to the listing broker if, during the term of such agreement and up to twenty-four (24) months thereafter, the Business is transferred to a buyer introduced by the listing broker or a cooperating broker. Buyer shall conduct all inquiries into and discussions about the Business and Seller solely through Broker and shall not directly contact the Seller or any of the Seller’s representatives. Should Buyer purchase all or part of the stock or assets of Business, acquire any interest in Business or Seller, execute any lease at the Business premises, or become affiliated in any capacity with Business or Seller without Broker’s participation, or in any way interfere with Brokers’ right to a fee, Buyer shall be liable to the listing broker and the cooperating broker for such fee and any other damages including without limitation reasonable attorney’s fees, costs, and Broker’s expenses of collection.

 
 

5. DISCLOSURE REQUIRED BY LAW:

If Buyer or any of its agents or representatives is required by subpoena or other court order to disclose any Confidential Information, Buyer shall provide notice of such subpoena or order to Seller within seven (7) business days of Buyer’s receipt of same, and Buyer shall use reasonable best efforts to resist disclosure of any Confidential Information until an appropriate protective order may be sought, or a waiver of compliance with the provisions of this Agreement is granted in writing by Buyer. If, in the absence of a protective order or Buyer’s receipt of a written waiver of compliance, Buyer or any of its representatives is nonetheless in the written opinion of Buyer’s legal counsel legally required to disclose Confidential Information, then in such event Buyer may disclose such information, provided that (a) Seller is given a reasonable opportunity in advance of such disclosure to review the text and substance of such disclosure before it is made, and (b) said disclosure is limited solely to the Confidential Information specifically required to be disclosed.

 
 

6. REMEDIES AND INDEMNIFICATION:

Buyer expressly acknowledges that monetary damages would not be a sufficient remedy upon Buyer’s breach of the provisions of this Agreement, and Buyer further acknowledges that Seller and/or Broker shall be entitled to equitable relief, including without limitation injunctive relief and specific performance, in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity. Buyer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Broker from and against any and all losses, damages, liability, costs, fees, and expenses, including without limitation attorney’s fees, that Broker may sustain or incur as a result of Buyer’s breach of this Agreement.

 
 

7. FURTHER TERMS:

This Agreement reflects solely Buyer’s agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information Buyer receives hereunder.
