#### What is the difference between M&A and LBO?

As the name suggests, LBOs use leverage, or debt, to finance a large part of the purchase price. Unlike an M&A model where the acquirer is often a strategic buyer, the private equity firm is more return-driven, and the LBO model is, therefore, more focused on the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of the transaction.

**Why is DCF higher than LBO?**

Usually, DCF will give a higher valuation. Unlike DCF, in LBO analysis, you won’t get any cash flow between year one and the final year. So the analysis is done based on terminal value only. In the case of DCF, the valuation is done both based on cash flows and the terminal values; thus, it tends to be higher.
