Gross Revenue:
After 16 years in the business the current owners are looking to retire and find a purchaser for this long established and successful Newsagency and LPO.

This is a steady and profitable business investment turning over $1.17 million and earning the retiring owners over $161,000 for the financial year 2012-13, a promising improvement on the previous year. As with any LPO/Newsagency, profits are diversified, adding an element of resilience.

Located in one of the oldest demographics of the Inner North, the business enjoys a strong following of loyal clientele including approximately 350 delivery accounts. 13 subagents further expand the network, including 2 supermarkets and 4 service stations.

All that business makes for long trading hours, 6am to 6pm weekdays and half days on Saturday and Sunday. This is currently a family business. A husband and wife team have been putting in 3 full and 4 half days each week plus deliveries, while the son and son-in-law deliver newspapers 6 days between them.

At present, 2 casuals are brought in to assist for a total 18 hours/week (plus more when required). Luckily the profit is there to hire additional staff if needed.

In brief:

  • Turnover beyond $1.17 million for 2012-13 financial year
  • Owners profit over $161,000 for 2012-13 financial year
  • Gross Profit of 29.67% 2012-13 financial year
  • Rent 92m2 for $3,845.95 plus GST/month
  • Landlord has agreed to new 5 plus 5 lease at expiry in August 2014
