      You should never find an EBITDA multiple that uses Equity Value/Market Cap... EV should represent Enterprise Value. If you're looking at a multiple such as EV/EBITDA, it should be capital structure independent, and thus, you'd apply the multiple to the relevant metric for your company and derive an Enterprise Value from that.
