Consistently Profitable – Stable Revenues – High Growth Opportunity
============================================================
For over 30 years, this structural testing lab has provided exceptional and trustworthy services. Its revenues and EBITDA have been consistent for the past several years. Its revenue has been between $1.1-$1.2M, and it offers an impressive EBITDA margin of around 45-50%. During the pandemic, its revenue remained stable. The current year is off to a promising start. The management projects the current year's revenue to jump by about 25-30% to $1.6M. The steep increase in 2022 is due to successful entry into a new industry segment of building testing. This expansion should bring lucrative new projects in the future.
