Our investment process begins with The Acquirer’s Multiple® The Acquirer’s Multiple® is defined in the book The Acquirer's Multiple as Enterprise Value / Operating Earnings. , the measure used by activists and buyout firms to identify potential targets. We believe deeply undervalued and out-of-favor stocks offer asymmetric returns, with the potential for limited downside and a greater upside.
