We have access to international information from realized M&A (Merging & Acquisition) transactions. This information is updated on a regular basis and can be used as a guideline for valuation purposes. We recognized over the years that many owners of small and mid sized companies have an unrealistic perception of the value of the company. During the actual selling process this can be a disadvantage. To manage the value expectations we use recent transaction values of companies to show what the M&A market is all about at the moment.
Ofcourse we understand that this information is only a guideline (but based on actual transaction values).
The presented diagrams show:
Multiples shown below are not actual data (please feel free to ask for actual market information).
EBIT multiples (corporate value = multiple x EBIT)
Turnover multiples (corporate value = multiple x turnover)
