A couple of readers have asked that I start up a valuation thread. No wrong answers here if you’d like to add your thoughts. I’d particularly like to hear how you handle asset valuation vs income from assets; I’ve seen a fair amount of double counting.
I’ll start with a quicky that I wrote after the Q: “I calculate the “non-sale” (no sale income included) EBTDA to be $73MM. $73MM taxed at 20% = $58.4MM or $234MM/year. 20x = $4.67B. 30x = $7B. Current mkt cap is $6.13B. Implied multiple = 26x. Again, very back of the envelope.”
