From the research geniuses at Axial Market, we get a very telling chart about investor behaviour.
According to the chart below, the private equity industry looks for deals based on target EBITDA thresholds. That’s fine.
The problem is, it’s seems like everyone is looking at the same threshold. Check out the $1 million mark. Most investors are clustered there. And so it goes with other nice, round numbers like $2 million, $3 million, and $5 million.
The point is, come up with a more random threshold and see how your competition for deals fades away.
