The third edition of Cost of Capital: Estimations and Applications, released just this past week, features new co-author Roger Grabowski in addition to the original author Shannon Pratt.  Not surprisingly, the new edition contains extensive discussion of data from the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report as well as added chapters on:

  • cost of capital for financial reporting under SFAS 141, 142 and 144
  • risk measures and their relationship to cost of capital
  • cost of capital for companies in developing economies
  • cost of capital for transfer pricing

The authors have updated chapters on cost of capital in the courts and marketability discounts, and leading experts have contributed specialized chapters on real estate, property tax, and family limited partnership valuations.  The chapter on Company-Specific Risk also features a discussion of the Butler Pinkerton Model™—Company-Specific Risk and TCOE Calculator™.  To order your copy of Cost of Capital, third edition, click here.
