Abstract

This paper examines the valuation performances of seven multiples on a sample of BSE-listed firms. When industry membership is used as the selection method for comparable firms, the P/CF multiple leads to the best valuation performance. P/E, P/B, P/CF and P/TA multiples assure the highest accuracies when ROE is used as the selection method for comparable firms. In the case of both selection methods of comparables, the P/S multiple leads to the least accurate valuation. In this study, accuracy levels of multiple valuations are generally lower than those obtained using the same methods on more developed capital markets.
