Margins currently exceed 45% but there is an opportunity for improved margins for a properly capitalized buyer.

Product sells through and has developed a loyal customer base.

Simply put, the opportunity is potentially a >$100 million opportunity for a buyer who has the cash and/or distribution contacts to expand the market presence of the product. The product sells through, it just needs more locations. Cash restrictions on larger accounts add to the difficulty. For example, Company has been authorized by Kroger but the Company doesn't have the financial ability to accept their purchase orders. In order to get the Company to the next level, a capital available and high bandwidth buyer would need to be acquired.

Minor dip in 2014 was due to a regrettable decision to market an energy drink that performed very poorly. Owner is happy to explain in detail what happened.

Reason For Sale: Leveraging the Company on a debt basis as well as having to commit an additional 3 – 5 years to grow it is outside of the owners immediate interest and expertise; hence, the decision to seek a buyer for the Company.
