1. Calculate the EBITDA from company A= 100m * 16% = 16 m

2. Calculate the revenues from company B and company C. For that you need to calculate the revenues for each company. Solving the following equations:

RMS = market share company / market share leader (1)
Market share * Market size = Revenues company (2)

So we have:

Revenues A = Market share A * Market size
100 m / Market size = Market share A (3)

For company C:

0.6 = Market share C / Market share A
0.6 * Market share A = Market share C (4)

(3) in (4)

0.6 * 100m / market size = Market share C
60 m = market share C * market size
60 m = Revenue C

Following the same procedure for D:

50 M = Revenue D

So:

Total revenues = 50 m + 60 m = 110 m

3. Lets find the Initial EBITDA = 14,9 m

4. Lets now find the expected EBITDA . 110M * 16% = 17.6 m

4. Lets find the increase: 17.6 m - 14.9 m = 2.7 m

Can you please message me? Thank you. Where did you get this sample btw?

Hi Floyd, thank you for your answer. It is very clear for me right now. I thought the 100m in sales where for the entire players.
