Multiple Arbitrage

Nick talks about one of the most important core principles in private equity, one that helps to create high-value businesses – multiple arbitrage. As Nick explains, if you can fully understand the principle, it can lead to a life-changing exit, and will endow you with the experience and knowledge to hold effective conversations with potential business purchasers.


  • Multiple arbitrage is the increasing of value of a company between buying and selling, absent of any operational improvements.
  • Bolting on businesses to a smaller concern can help to grow size. As it increases in size and value, you create a multiple arbitrage strategy.
  • If a bigger company has a higher value, and you are bringing a smaller value company in, the value of the bigger company instantly increases.


‘The value of a business is very much in the eye of the beholder’

‘You’re better off trying to become a part of a bigger entity’

‘Create value via the multiplier effect’
