Enterprise Value = (Market Capitalization) + (Debt, Minority Interests & Preferred Stock) - (Cash & Cash Equivalents)

Why is this a useful valuation ratio? Enterprise Value is the market value of the company (accounting for its debt and cash), while EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) is a 'purified' earnings value.
