EverlyWell Testing Update | Shark Tank Season 9

Started by entrepreneur, Julia Cheek, EverlyWell is a company that provides testing kits for customers that can conveniently be used at home. The concept of the business is really great, but the sharks were a little concerned when they heard that Julia is seeking an investment of $1 million for just 5% equity. Let’s see whether she was able to strike a deal during Season 9 of Shark Tank before we take a look at the EverlyWell update.

EverlyWell Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Julia Cheek
  • Business: Lab Testing
  • Ask: $1,000,000 for 5% equity
  • Result: $1,000,000 line of credit at 8% interest rate in exchange for 5% equity
  • Sharks: Lori Greiner

The average test kit on EverlyWell’s platform costs between $100 and $300 and Julia expressed to the sharks that it was generally more convenient and affordable for customers to purchase home testing kits from her website rather than visiting a doctor’s office in person.

EverlyWell had more than $2.5 million in product sales and continues to have a 20% growth rate every single month. The company is expected to reach projections above $5 million in gross revenue and product sales if nothing changes. With an optimistic projection for the next calendar year, Julia believes her company could reach $12 million in gross sales as well.

While four of the sharks dropped out, Lori Greiner decided to make an offer of $1 million in exchange for 5% equity on the contingency that the money offered would be a loan at 8% interest per year until it is returned fully. Julia thought about making a counteroffer but ultimately decided to accept Lori’s initial offer.

Now that we know that Lori and Julia agreed to an initial deal on Shark Tank, let’s get an EverlyWell update to see what happened to the company after the show aired.

The company benefited from the COVID-19 pandemic by creating home testing kits. The company has done outstandingly well since then and currently has a valuation in excess of $750 million dollars.

There’s no doubt that EverlyWell could be one of the best-performing investments on Shark Tank in the history of the show and undoubtedly is one of Lori Greiner’s best investments on Shark Tank as well.

We can’t wait to see where our next EverlyWell update takes us!
