How to Interpret:

  • Real buyers most commonly use a multiple of cash flow- Income Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (IBITDA)- as their primary means of valuing a business.
  • Our calculator takes into account that you may pay yourself more than you would pay an outside manager to do your job and makes an adjustment to IBITDA.
  • 4 to 5 times IBITDA is the average range of purchase prices. We base your estimated Enterprise Value using the range between those.
  • Enterprise Value is further adjusted by adding back your cash and subtracting your debt
  • We then take out the estimated taxes that would be paid on the transaction leaving your with the Net Value Available to support your lifestyle
  • Based upon your desired lifestyle and personal income tax rate, we arrive at your pre-tax income needs
  • Then we calculate the investable funds necessary to cover those needs.
  • The relationship between what you need and what you have is represented in the Podolny Financial Independence Percentage.
