Use MVIC/GP when appraising wholesalers, Miller suggests

What is the key valuation multiple when appraising wholesalers?


“Appraisers should analyze MVIC/Gross Profit multiples for all distribution clients,” says Warren Miller (Beckmill Research, LLC). “In our experience with small and medium-sized distribution companies, MVIC/GP often has a low coefficient of variation. If that multiple is not already in your guideline public company template, it should be,” he adds.
