The multiples valuation method estimates the relative value of a company by comparing it to similar ones in the same industry. It uses key financial metrics such as earnings and revenue, and some of the most popular types include transaction and trading multiples.

A relative valuation is only as good as the quality of the peer group selected, so you’ll need to prepare a solid list of comparable firms.
