1. Waste Management & Recycling Business

  • Location: Austin, TX

  • Asking Price: $750,000

  • EBITDA: $191,000

  • Multiple: 3.93x

  • Revenue: $1,692,000

  • EBITDA Margin: 11% 

  • Employees: 12

  • List Date: 5/20/2024 

  • Reason for selling: Retirement 

💬 Harry & Carter’s thoughts:

Waste management companies are near synonymous with the term ‘mission-critical’, which is why we like them. This business is relatively new (established in 2017) but boasts double-digit YoY growth. While the margins are a little thin (11%) for our liking, this is common for smaller, young companies that need to grow in order to spread out the overhead costs. We like that the business has 2 managers in place, as well as 10 employees who understand the day-to-day operations.

  • 2 experienced managers in place

  • Includes 4 trucks & 8 containers

  • 2 revenue streams:

    • Junk removal services

    • Reselling of junk

  • No known competitors in the area

❓️What is the current geographic footprint of the company?
❓️Does the business have long-term contracts in place?
❓️What is the percentage of customer concentration?

💬 Harry & Carter’s thoughts:

Since 1981, this genetic testing company has been operating out of Seattle and growing at a gradual pace. The laboratory comes fully equipped for molecular, genetic and pathology testing, and resides in a 4,000 sq ft space that rents for $10,000/month. They have contracts with many large health insurance providers (listing states exact companies). We would like to know more about these contracts and if they are providing consistent revenue to the lab.

For over 20 years, this specialty cable manufacturer has provided a wide range of fiber, copper, and optical cable products to trusted clients, indicating significant brand goodwill and a strong reputation. Their custom cable and optical assemblies follow ISO procedures, a gold standard in manufacturing. The company's quality controls are robust, with every fiber optic cable tested and serialized for traceability, and test data archived and included with all orders. As many of our readers know, we favor niche manufacturing businesses, and this one is exceptionally specialized.

  • Revenue: $8,000,000

💬 Harry & Carter’s thoughts: 

Operating for 28 years, this yacht chartering business is one of only five commercial passenger boats permitted in Miami. The yacht is 92 feet long with a capacity of 137 people. It appears to have passed all inspections and is in good condition, though verification is recommended. One of the most appealing aspects of this deal is the owner's offer to finance over 80% of the purchase for 60 months at 0% interest. For the right buyer, this is a great opportunity.

  • Clean books

  • Seller financing available (80%!)

  • 1 of 5 commercial passenger boats allowed to operate in Miami

  • Low competition

❓️What is the value of the boat?
❓️What are maintenance costs associated with the boat?

❓️What is the owner’s role in the business?

For over 40 years, this company has specialized in maintenance and repair services for industrial, agricultural, aviation, and construction equipment. They possess unique market expertise and face minimal competition. The listing highlights consistent repeat business and a self-sufficient staff, with the possibility for absentee ownership. Industrial equipment service companies are essential “mission critical” businesses especially with an independent and skilled team in place.
