UK-BASED AMAZON FBA E-COMMERCE BUSINESS

Looking for a buyer.
Outstanding opportunity for an experienced Amazon FBA operator. The business is priced to sell – extremely unusual in the current market.

The owners of this business opened a 24-bedroom hotel in central London in March 2020, just as COVID hit. This crisis consumed all of their time and money and they neglected their Amazon FBA business. The business remained profitable on relative “autopilot”, although it is suffering from their lack of time and attention.

Key details:
• UK-based
• Amazon account since 2014
• $516k SDE from $3.2m in sales for the TTM to May 2021
• 99% Amazon FBA
• 2 brands with only 5 main products in total
• First brand – health & personal care: only 3 main products (with a few colour variants each)
• Second brand – in-car accessories: 85% of sales from only 2 ASINS
• Trademarks and Amazon Brand Registry for both brands
• Multiple “Amazon’s Choice” badges for key search terms
• The business has been running on relative autopilot
• Suffering from a lack of management time and attention, especially to inventory management – the business has remained profitable despite long stock-out periods
• Supply chain, marketing and many other aspects have not been optimised and represent “low hanging fruit” for a professional management team to quickly fix
• Owners are open to an asset sale

The headline revenue and SDE (not EBITDA) figures are for the TTM to 31st May[redacted]Performance is down a little since then, for the reasons explained above.

The owners do not have the time or resources to return the business to growth. The buyer will not be competing with many Amazon “aggregator” firms since those firms are not geared to acquire businesses like this – therefore there is much less competition and this business will sell for a very reasonable multiple.
