History, Purpose & Limitations
of the Survey
• Since 2003, HAI has published nine annual surveys
reporting valuation multiples and related topics on the
ASC industry
• Why? To provide a centralized source of market
intelligence on valuation trends within the ASC industry.
• Disclaimer: Survey should not be used in lieu of a formal
valuation.

What are Valuation Multiples?
The Meaning Behind the Numbers
The Finance Definition (a.k.a. Appraiser speak)
“A mathematical expression of risk and growth, which when applied to a
perpetually recurring earnings stream results in an indication of value”
A multiple is mathematically expressed as follows:
1
(K  g )
• Where, (K) represents the rate of return (risk), and
• (G) represents the growth rate of the earnings stream

What are Valuation Multiples?
The Meaning Behind the Numbers – An Example
• The risk of the investment warrants a 15% rate of return
• The growth of earnings is expected to be 5% per year
• Formula:
1
(K  g )
=
1
.15  .05
= 10.0x multiple
1) How are risk and growth determined?
2) 10.0x What?

What are Valuation Multiples?
• Before we can truly understand valuation multiples, and apply
them to a particular ASC, we need to understand three key
components:
1. Definition of the Earnings Stream
2. Estimation of Risk (K) measured as a rate of return
3. Estimation of the rate of earnings Growth (g)

How Minority vs. Majority Control
Interests Impact a Valuation
• Simply stated: As we will see in some upcoming slides, interests
providing absolute control (e.g., greater than a 50% interest whereby
key aspects of control are not diminished by governing documents or
otherwise) are worth more than interests which do not have the same
control rights.
• Control granted by the governing documents. Examples include:
• Capital calls and distributions
• Admission of new investors
• Borrowings greater than a certain amount
• Entering into material contracts
• Selling, merging, or liquidating the company
• Concept of “effective” control – physicians control with their feet
typical ASC ownership agreements are very friendly to the minority
shareholder

Out-of-Network Center
Valuations
How do buyers really value OON centers?
• Recent survey results indicate 66% of respondents
would shy away from centers where OON revenue
constitutes 40% or less of total revenue.
• 69% “convert” OON revenue streams to in-network for
valuation purposes.
• 36% decrease valuation multiples by > 2.0X
(significant increase over prior survey)
• Bottom line – fact and circumstance specific

What's the Going Rate for ASC
Management Fees?
• 70% charge between 5 and 6% of net revenue.
• 38% have minimum management fees ranging
between \$100 and \$200K.
• 59% have sliding scale management fees whereby fees
decline after a predetermined revenue threshold
(i.e., generally when annual management fees
approach \$500,000 to \$750,000).
• Full-time dedicated center administrators are not
included in these fees.
