Duff & Phelps’ new 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital includes exclusive data previously offered in the Ibbotson® Stock, Bonds, Bills and Inflation (SBBI®) Valuation Yearbook
Duff & Phelps Corporation, the premier global valuation and corporate finance advisor, today announced publication of the 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital. The new book and companion Risk Premium Calculator help finance professionals estimate the cost of capital, an essential input to assess the feasibility of every merger and acquisition transaction and other strategic investments.
Determining the appropriate cost of capital, or discount rate, can be one of the most challenging aspects of any valuation analysis, particularly in volatile markets or during periods of economic uncertainty. Duff & Phelps’ new resources provide the approaches and data needed to make reliable estimates of this critical valuation assumption.
“With approximately $1.6 trillion in cash on corporate balance sheets-and an uptick in M&A activity thus far in 2014-reliable cost of capital estimates are imperative to achieving successful financial returns,” said Roger Grabowski, Duff & Phelps Managing Director and co-author of Cost of Capital, Applications and Examples. “We are pleased to provide corporate finance professionals and valuation practitioners with a comprehensive, definitive resource to develop estimates of cost of capital.”
The 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital incudes the Duff & Phelps long-standing Risk Premium Report along with all of the critical year-end data that was previously available in the now discontinued Ibbotson® Stock, Bonds, Bills and Inflation (SBBI®) Valuation Yearbook. The new book will be updated annually.
In addition to the new 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital, related resources that are now available include:
The 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital is now available for purchase through Business Valuation Resources, ValuSource and the AICPA.
