Cannabis comp tables as of Dec. 2, 2019

This comp table provides a benchmark for private investors to evaluate existing and future investments as well as a menu for public investors to peruse.

It organizes companies into groups based on the main business model (vertically integrated operators, hemp/CBD, pharmaceutical, and ancillary products and services) and lists the market capitalization, enterprise value (EV), sales and EBITDA estimates, and the EV/sales and EV/EBITDA multiples on those projections.

Nonmeaningful outliers are removed before the averages by group are calculated.

For most companies, we have adjusted for future dilution and debt levels by including in-the-money warrants, options, convertible debt and shares issued in pending acquisitions. Out-of-the-money warrants and options are excluded from the share count, and out-of-the-money convertible debt is counted as debt.

Are there companies missing from this table? A metric you believe is relevant to include?
