Murray Devine Valuation Advisors Publishes 2019 Valuation Outlook

Philadelphia, January 22, 2019 – Murray Devine Valuation Advisors has released its annual Valuation Outlook which gives a recap of the high valuations that faced private equity buyers in 2018 and what to expect in 2019.

The annual report, “The Multiple Still Matters,” dives into what to expect for valuations in 2019 and what the impact of high asset prices on long-term performance will be for investors.

“As deal pros look to 2019, the big unknown is whether the renewed uncertainty that has gripped the public markets will translate into any relief from this era of high asset prices,” noted Daniel DiDomenico III, a Senior Managing Director at Murray Devine Valuation Advisors and author of the report. “We may not see it today, but the role of valuations will become more transparent as capabilities such as data science begin to once again divide the haves from the have nots.”

The report includes data on the median valuation multiples paid by U.S. private equity firms, as well as debt multiples and M&A multiples broken down by deal size and by certain sectors.
