Multiple Analysis
Multiple Valuation involve the following steps:

1. 2. 3. 4.

Define the multiple Describe the multiple Analyze the multiple Apply the Multiple

Multiple Analysis
Advantages: Simple and Cheap Does not rely on forecasting Relevant Disadvantages: EBITDA inflates earnings Historical Data Subjective

Multiple Assumptions

Exhibit 2 shows the summary of financial data for selected comparable companies

Multiple Assumptions
Firms are similar in size, growth and return

R2 is the coefficient of determination which shows the strength in relationship between the two variables

Multiple Assumptions

EBITDA is calculated at the same period EBITDA only focuses on earnings and excludes interest, tax, depreciation and amortization which could have significant impacts on a company

## Regression Vs. Traditional Multiple Analysis

Uses the average of companies multiples

Regression

## Plots results on a graph and a line of best fit is drawn

DCF Analysis
DCF Analysis involve the following steps: 1. 2. 3. Forecasting the expected cash flows Estimating the discount rate (WACC) Calculating the value of the corporation

DCF Analysis
Advantages: Clear, consistent decision criteria for all projects Quantitative, decent level of precision Not as vulnerable to accounting conventions Time value of money Disadvantages: Future rates = Unknown Lacks in Accuracy Decision made now Use of FCF Unknown, intangible factors are valued as zero

DCF Assumptions

Assumptions: WACC of 9.3%: unrealistic changes in market conditions and beta Terminal multiple value of 13: realistic conservative in comparison to Exhibit 6 EBITDA: unrealistic Income statement shows fluctuating figures but forecasted EBITDA shows growing at constant rate Asset Intensity ignores stealth tier
