Valuation Multiples data seems to include higher numbers of transactions starting with 2016 data than in prior years, what changed?
Pratt’s Stats now reports transactions by the book value of total assets and transactions by the market value of total assets separately. In light of this change by Pratt’s in January 2016, First Research shifted to reporting transactions by the market value of invested capital (MVIC). This change has resulted in a higher number of captured transactions, and a more accurate snapshot of an industry’s acquisition multiple data.
