MARKET/BOOK AND EV/EBITDA RATIOS Edelman Engines has $17 billion in total assets —of which cash and equivalents total $100 million. Its balance sheet shows $1.7 billion in current liabilities—of which the notes payable balance totals $1 billion. The firm also has $102 billion in long-term debt and $5.1 billion in common equity. It has 300 million shares of common stock outstanding, and its stock price is $20 per share. The firm's EBITDA totals $1.368 billion. Assume the firm's debt is priced at par, so the market value of its debt equals its book value. What are Edelman's market/book and its EV/EBITDA ratios?
