Viridian's Thursday Valuation Tracker

Frank Colombo, CFA | Director of Data Analytics | Viridian Capital Advisors


January 12, 2023 ( Newswire) This week's Viridian Value Tracker focuses on the valuation statistics of the 15 U.S Cultivation & Retail companies with over $100M market cap.

We aimed to establish benchmark year-end 2022 measures to gauge valuation changes during 2023.

Model Analysis

  • The table below shows the quartiles, median, and average for the selected peer group on a range of valuation metrics. We tend to avoid using average measures due to the frequent presence of outliers.
  • The median EV/ 2023 consensus EBITDA for the group is now 5.28x, near the bottom of the range we have seen over the last two years. The lowest quartile or lowest 25 of companies are below 3.89x 2023 EBITDA. Similarly, the highest 25% of companies are above 7.85x.
  • We update these and other valuation measures weekly. The Valuation Tracker can filter from a database of over 350 companies in the Viridian Capital-defined 12 cannabis subsectors. We find that the more cohesive the selected peer group is, the more accurate the valuation measures become.


Launched in January 2015, and having analyzed more than $60B in deals, the Viridian Cannabis Deal Tracker is a proprietary data service that monitors and analyzes capital raise and M&A activity in the legal cannabis, CBD, and psychedelics industries. Each week the Deal Tracker provides proprietary data and market intelligence on transactions, including:

  • Deals by Industry Sector (To track the flow of capital and M&A Deals by one of 12 Sectors - from Cultivation to Brands to Software)
  • Deal Structure (Equity/Debt for Capital Raises, Cash/Stock/Earnout for M&A)
  • Principals to the Transaction (Issuer/Investor/Lender/Acquirer)
  • Key Deal Terms (Deal Size, Valuation, Pricing, Warrants, Cost of Capital)
  • Deals by Location of Issuer/Buyer/Seller (To Track the Flow of Capital and M&A Deals by State and Country)
