Because valuation is happening at the time of some kind of restructuring - new partner coming or old retiring etc. At that time embedded value of GW is calculated and the capital contribution / ratios etc are decided. When a new partner is coming in they are ascribing a value to it and they are purchasing a stake in the partnership by contributing capital. Such purchase price ( which includes value of goodwill) is arrived based on profits / super normal profits etc. hence the phrase no. of years of purchase of average profits
