Deloitte Industrial 40
The story of 2000-2009 global market multiples
We have analyzed 40 industrial sectors, focusing on 2000-2009 EBITDA multiples1 across a worldwide panel of non financial companies. For each sector, we have selected a maximum of the 50 largest market capitalizations as of mid 2010, i.e., about 2,000 companies. Every annual sector multiple results from the arithmetical average of the multiples for the companies belonging to the sector. For consistency purposes, we have excluded unmeaningful multiples mostly across BRIC countries resulting in a panel of 1,356 companies.
