Trucking company example:
$5mm in assets (trucks/trailers)
$750k EBITDA

Let’s say the industry trades 5x EV/EBITDA, which in this case would be $3.75mm valuation. No owner would sell below ‘break-up’ value of assets obviously.

I feel like the business should trade at asset value plus some goodwill (customers, drivers, office staff).

Do you guys agree here? Any formula to apply?
