Specialized businesses may face more unique challenges in the economy and their respective markets, so values understandably shift. A business valuation helps the lender help you.

Business Value is often Simple Math or is it….

  • The formula for calculating Business Value: Adjusted EBITDA times a Multiple?
  • Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization, adjusted for personal expenses unique to the current owner(s).
  • The Multiple is subjective and is what the Buyer is willing to pay on their perceived ability to continue generating profits and the risks of doing so.
  • Companies generally sell between 1 and 6 times EBITDA; top performers or Companies that provide a strategic advantage for the Acquirer sell significantly higher than 6.
