RNS  Adwani, an ITI diploma holder had been working with M/s. RNS and workshop for the last ten years. He had joined as a technician. He was recognized as the best mechanic of Supreme Garage. A good number of clients preferred to get their cars repaired by RNS Adwani . In three years time, he was promoted as a supervisor. RNS  Adwani then joined distance education programme of IGNOU and completed his graduation. He studied accounts and would assist the owner Mr. Gupta in maintaining the accounts. Mr. Gupta liked him very much and two years back, RNS  Adwani was promoted as the manager of RNS and Workshop.

Gupta had set up this business about 18 years back when he had retired from the Indian Army due to a leg injury. Due to good customer relations and quality service, RNS and workshop had earned a very good reputation and was known as the best motor garage in the district. A large number of clients form the neighboring  district would bring in their vehicles to Supreme Garage. The workshop was known for engine overhauling. It had an electrical section for auto electrical and an agency for Exide batteries. RNS specialized in denting and painting and maintained good relations with insurance companies. It maintained its own tow truck and did good business during accidents and break-downs. It presently employed ten full time mechanics, one supervisor besides RNS  Adwani and Gupta who were manager and the owner respectively. During the rush season the workers worked overtime and additional casual labour was also employed to meet the delivery schedules.

Since past one year, Mrs. Gupta  was not keeping well. Six months ago, she had a minor  heart attack. Mrs. and Mr. Gupta decided to shift to USA and join their daughter, who was a heart specialist at Los Angles, USA. Gupta had no one to succeed him, he decided to sell the business. He wanted the buyer to run the business on similar lines and maintain its reputation.

He called RNS  Adwani and made him an offer to sell his business. The initial offer was for Rs. 57.50 lakh. He also proposed to assist RNS  in financing the purchase.

Gupta provided him with the information on past earnings with projections for five years. He also provided him with the Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Accounts of RNS Motors as on 31st  March 2000. He informed RNS  that based upon the business flow, he had valued the goodwill as Rs. 15 lakh.

RNS  was excited about the offer. He knew that the business was very profitable and its profits had been increasing over the years. It had never been at loss. He consulted a friend who was a banker and also a Chartered Accountant. He advised him differently. He knew there was a scope of negotiation over the price of the business. Now RNS  now needs assistance.
