If your objective-to-value is to determine what a business is worth in the event of a third-party sale, your need is based in the “market approach” to value. When referring to “the market” we are referring to the types of people who buy businesses — individual, financial, and strategic.
Within “the market,” each buyer type has a slightly different approach-to-value. Most buyers configure valuation based on a multiple of adjusted earnings. The calculation of adjusted earnings can generally be classified as one of two formulas: SDE (sellers’ discretionary earnings) or EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization).
