One of the most common valuation multiples in business valuation is an SDE multiple. An SDE multiple compares the seller’s discretionary earnings of the business with the implied value of the business. For instance, the seller’s discretionary earnings of a textile business are $279,000. Using a 2.70x SDE multiple, implies the value of the textile mill business is $753,300. ($279,000 times 2.70x) Whereas, if a 2.13x SDE multiple is applicable, the implied value of the textile mill is $594,270. ($279,000 times 2.13x)
