What’s Driving Your Business Multiples
If you’re thinking of selling your business, you probably can’t stop thinking about multiples.
A multiple is a combination of key metrics into a single number. It is used for industry comparisons, and helps investors establish a price when they’re buying a business.
Every business owner dreams of receiving a high multiple when they sell their business - but that’s dependent entirely on a number of industry-specific metrics.
While most business valuations tend to be general in nature, it’s important to work with a trusted valuation partner that can explain what those metrics mean to the printing and print-related industries and their impact on business valuation multiples.
As the LaManna Alliance works with many private equity companies and strategic buyers, we understand exactly what drives an investor’s business valuation formula.

The Valuation of a Company:
Choosing the Right Level of Analysis
When you’re considering a business valuation, the first question you need to ask is what type of a valuation do you truly need.
When it comes to valuing a small to mid-sized business, a more basic valuation - a Calculation of Value - is all you need. It gives you a solid sense of your business, as it includes:
- Financial analysis
- Operational analysis
- Market, industrial and economical analysis
- Summary of valuation methods applied
This data, when compared with your historical statements, adjusted income statement, and a 1, 3 and 5-year projection plan, usually is what investors need to properly evaluate your business.

Do You Need an Accredited Appraiser?
We strongly believe you do. An independent, accredited appraiser from a business valuation firm will understand the complexities of a printing and print-related business. Our valuation partners are attuned to all facets of your operation.
A valuation from an accredited, independent appraiser also provides the perfect starting point for negotiations, primarily because these appraisers are unbiased experts. They must follow a strict, uniform process.
Finally, accredited appraisers eliminate the need for a second opinion. Their uniform process reduces likelihood of drastically different numbers. It’s why the LaManna Alliance only partners with accredited appraisers.
