Enterprise Multiple

A way to determine the value of a company, especially if a person is considering buying shares or the company as a whole. It is calculated by taking its enterprise value and dividing by its EBITDA. The enterprise multiple is useful because, unlike other ratios like the P/E, it takes the company's debt into account (because the enterprise value considers debt). A low enterprise multiple indicates that the company is undervalued while a high multiple indicates that it is overvalued.
