Precedent transaction multiples are often used to estimate the market value of oil and gas assets. The multiples typically used for valuation include production, reserves, and cash flow multiples.  Improper application of these multiples can lead to valuation estimates that are significantly different than actual market value.  This presentation outlines a method to improve the accuracy of market value estimates from multiples analysis by incorporating (1) the correlation between multiples and proved reserves to production (R/P) ratio, and (2) the effect of profit margin on transaction multiples.  The effect of margin is especially relevant because some transaction metrics are not necessarily valid in the current market due to significant changes in commodity prices.
