Relocatable: No
Business Categories:

Serves a large area and includes a circulation of 2,500 weekly with a great subscription deal with five local municipalities for advertising in return for purchased subscriptions for residents.
Also only 40 miles from Grande Prairie which serves the entire area (car dealerships, furniture/appliances, retail stores, etc.) to add to advertising revenue.
Qualify for federal government subsidy of over $40,000 to offset printing and mailing costs. Goes from April to April so buyer would get the subsidy in early fall.

2016 revenue $302,712.
Five municipalities get advertising in exchange for purchasing subscriptions for ratepayers so guaranteed subscription money. This works out to over $80,000 a year, plus another 500 or so regular subscribers that don't live in the municipalities. Price is reduced to $115,000 -- goes to $160,000 if buyer maintains subscription money for remainder of 2017. And takeover is done by end of March with 9 months left in year. Government subsidy starts April so that money is buyers.

No direct competition. Grande Prairie has a daily newspaper that does not compete with my newspaper. I am the only newspaper in the area that serves a population of 7,000 people with one town, one village and three rural municipalities. Serves big area with lots of oil and gas industry, farming and forestry.
