The comparable company method of valuation does not account for the value of corporate control. Therefore, the method must be adjusted if it is being used to value a company involved in a change-of-control transaction. We provide two alternative ways to adjust the comparable company method for the value of corporate control. The efficacy of the adjusted comparable company method is confirmed on 51 highly leveraged transactions (HLTs) from Kaplan and Ruback (1995).
