Capital Structure

I have a greater than 10x ebitda multiple for a company in the consumer space as a target. I'm just wondering if I've set up my capital structure in a reasonable way. I'd love to be able to PM someone and talk about it. I got my greater than 10x multiple by looking at precedent transactions but idk...

Having a greater than 10x ebitda multiple means I have to assume that the Company's total debt to ebitda is way greater than say 5x which is what I'm more used to working with. Is this is in any way possible?
