EV / AssetsView Financial Glossary Index
Enterprise Value to Assets is the enterprise value of a company divided by its total assets. It should be the default EV multiple when the business is asset driven (when ROA is relatively constant and assets show future cash flows the best).
A high (low) EV/Assets mean the company is potentially overvalued (undervalued).
EV/Financial Metrics are often used by analysts to quickly look at a company's valuation multiples. All things being equal, the lower this ratio is, the better.
Other similar metrics include :
EV/EBITDA : How much is each dollar of EBITDA worth to investors?
EV/Revenues : Or each dollar of Revenues?
EV/Free Cash Flow : Or each dollar of FCF?
