Normalization is the process of removing non-recurring expenses or revenue from a financial metric like EBITDA, EBIT or earnings. Once earnings have been normalized, the resulting number represents the future earnings capacity that a buyer would expect from the business. One of the most common valuation methods is based on a multiple of normalized EBITDA, so "normalizing up" a company's EBITDA is a common motivation of sellers and investment bankers when marketing a business. Smart buyers are watchful of these normalization adjustments to ensure they are legitimate, so that they don't end up paying a multiple on earnings that will not be realized in the future. A significant portion of buyer due diligence is dedicated to reviewing normalization adjustments made by the seller, as well as looking for non-recurring income that may reduce EBITDA and the purchase price.
