Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

There are following two valuation techniques:

Comparable multiples

P/E multiple

Market to Book multiple

Price to Revenue multiple

Enterprise value to EBIT multiple

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)

NPV, IRR, or EVA based Methods

WACC method

APV method

CF to Equity method

The disadvantage of comparable methods is  that  To apply this method, we have to  look at comparable transactions in that industry paralleled to a business with a similar model and then compare them by the relevant ratios and multiples such as Enterprise Value-to-EBITDA..

The disadvantage of DCF method is that it relies on Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) and The risk-free rate comes from the Treasury bond rate at the time where the projections are being considered.
