Today, Cedar Fair released its EBITDA for the 12 months ending 12/31/2009 at $302,963,000. CF presentation materials that it filed for tomorrow's meeting calculated EBITDA multiple at 7.6x for the Apollo deal at $11.50/unit. Based on increase of most recent EBITDA, price per unit using same multiple would increase by about $0.60. Pushing the unit price to $13.50/unit yields about 7.84x multiple. Presentation materials put the multiples for Busch and Six Flags deals at 6.3x and 7.2x respectively. SF calculation appears to be based on the senior bond holder plan.

Yeah I realized that after I posted. :) Don't understand why people have to make a big deal out of a statement that was just an observation of what's been going on with six flags and cedar fair. Maybe he took his meds after. ;)
