median EV/EBITDA acquisition multiple worldwide 1990-2017 This statistic illustrates the median value of EV/EBITDA acquisition multiple worldwide from 1990 to 2017. EV/EBITDA is a comparison of enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization and is a common metric used for estimating one companies worth against another, as long as they are in the same industry.
EV/EBITDA is not often a good measure of comparing valuations of two companies conducting business in different industries. This is because capital requirements of industries are different, making this formula somewhat unreliable. If used for two companies within the same industry it can be a very good measure of a businesses value for investors.

It can be seen that the median EV/EBITDA multiple worldwide has seen a general increase between 2009 and 2017. As of 2017 the multiple of EV/EBITDA reached a median value of 14.35.
