How to evaluate company value? - (simplified)


Business Value =



Business Value

X Multiplier

EBITDA Multiplier

EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) is one of the ways banks, investors, and buyers may assess the core value of an organization.  But how much will an investor spend to buy your company? The simplified answer is,

EBITDA * EBITDA Multiplier = Business Value

The multiplier quantifies the question, "What if the owner leaves, what is the risk that the business will still be around tomorrow? "  

Why should you care?

Here's an example: If the EBITDA valuation on your company/investment is 5 million dollars,

  • A multiplier of 2 means your investment is worth 10 million dollars.
  • While a multiplier of 0.5 means the company will be worth only 2.5 million dollars. (even if profits are 5 million per year.)
  • Increasing your multiplier to 3 increases business worth to 15 million dollars. 

For this example, each rise in the multiplier adds 5 million dollars in value without the need to increase monthly earnings.  

What you will see 

As you focus on your multiplier, most of our clients see...,

  • For each additional multiple, the owner can add two weeks more of vacation.
  • A 30% improvement in worker productivity
  • A 20% increase in customer satisfaction
  • A $1.50 increase in profit for every $1 spent on employee salaries and benefits

Note: Our record has been a $30,000 increase in income from 4 hours of consulting.
