enterprise value (EV)
A measure of a company's market value from the standpoint of a takeover or acquisition. Unlike market capitalization, enterprise value takes into account the company's current debt. EV is calculated by adding together market capitalization and debt, which together equal the total outlay for the acquisition, and then subtracting the total cash and cash equivalents, which offset some of the acquisition costs.
