I have a list of companies with sales in the $5-10M range and I would like to determine whether each company possesses the characteristics shown below. What source or database can I use (preferably free) to determine this?
Recurring, high margin, growing
Diverse (customers, products & markets)
EBITDA margin of >15%
Growing or stable industry that is not cyclical in nature (how “recession-proof” is this industry)
Fragmented competitive landscape
Low threat of external shocks – technological, regulatory, legal, environmental, fashion, etc.
Simple, understandable operations
High return on invested capital
Identifiable areas of improvement
Underfollowed or misunderstood in the industry
