The 2010 Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report is on its way: Co-authored by Roger Grabowski and David King, this year’s compilation expands on prior cost of capital measures, particularly for small target companies, by including rate of return adjustments for distressed and delisted companies. Like previous editions, the 2010 Risk Premium Report also posts historical equity risk premiums (ERPs) and size premiums for 25 size-ranked portfolios using eight alternative measures of company size. Special offer: This year, purchase the Report through BVR and receive the Cost of Capital Reader, a free, 125 page, fully searchable supplement of current articles and presentations, including Grabowski’s article, “Cost of Capital Estimation in the Current Distressed Environment.”
Short-term, bonus offer: Purchase the Report now and for no additional cost, you can attend BVR’s 100-minute teleconference, “Duff & Phelps Report 2010: Learn from the Master,” featuring Grabowski, on February 18, 2010. (For those who don’t purchase the Report, the session is still available at the regular low cost.) The cost of capital “Master” will highlight everything appraisers need to harness the latest data, walking through the new and historic measures and answering real-time (and real-life) questions along the way.
