About PCPI

Each quarter we collect data surrounding Enterprise Value (EV) to Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) multiples. The Index tracks the EV to EBITDA multiples paid by trade and private equity buyers when purchasing UK private companies.

We examine this market data and compare it with historic data to identify key trends. We draw on our long experience of running the PCPI and our sector-specific expertise to predict future market trends.
