24 Jan Understanding Revenue Models and How They Impact Valuations
Matt & Ryan take over this Shoot the Moon podcast episode! We’re talking about revenue models in IT Services companies and how each model impacts valuations in an M&A transaction. Oftentimes recurring revenue leads to a higher EBITDA which leads to a higher valuation. The more recurring revenue you have, the more you can bump up that EBITDA range, but there are different types of revenue to consider.
Recurring Revenue: Yearly or monthly contracts that often auto renew with a price increase in place. A leading revenue source when it comes to valuations – having sticky customers!
Re-Occuring Revenue: This is revenue that is generated from customers who make repeat purchases from your business.
Project Based Revenue: High value revenue in the digital transformation space where you are doing a significant project and key to the business progress that is expected to come from the completion of a project.
Hourly Based Revenue: Staffing revenue where simply you are selling time & the services that go along with that time.
Time & Materials Revenue:
