Tech-2556: Fast-Growing Cannabis Testing Lab in Northwest For Sale

Outstanding Margins – Rapid Growth – Limited Local Competition – Great Growth Potential

This six-year-old Cannabis testing lab is an independent, full-service analytical lab with impressive year-to-year growth, lean operations, and solid profit margins. It is one of only a handful of full-service Cannabis labs in the State and only one of two in the local area where most of the farmers are.

The Lab has accreditations and licenses to test medicinal and recreational Cannabis. The Lab comes debt-free. The Lab analyzes medicinal and recreational marijuana to ensure that the products comply with and exceed the highest industry standards.

The Lab offers a full compliance analytical test package for usable marijuana, extracts/concentrates (for cannabis flower, concentrates, tinctures, pre-rolls, gummies, etc.), and individual tests for pesticides, potency, residual solvents, water activity, 42 Terpene profile, mycotoxins, and moisture content.

It will take about 18-24 months for someone to start such a lab from scratch, get validated for all the tests this Lab does, and get all the licenses.

Reason For Sale

The owners are technically very competent and skilled and feel that they have taken the Lab as far as they can, but someone with better business and marketing savvy can grow this much faster.

Asking Price

The owners are looking for a fair multiple of the EBITDA. Note that although the EBITDA margins for the lab are phenomenal, the owners recognize that they have run the lab frugally, with very favorable consumable contracts and a skeleton staff. However, the EBITDA margin for a buyer may be somewhat lower, and they are open to offers based on reasonable EBITDA adjustments by the buyer.
