The Butler Pinkerton Calculator™: Another Tool in Your Toolbox

BVWireIssue #91-1
April 7, 2010

In a recent free BVR teleconference, Peter Butler and Gary Trugman discussed the proper use of the Butler Pinkerton Calculator (BPC). BPC can be used to quantify company-specific risk premiums (CSRPs) and total costs of equity (TCOEs), particularly as “a great way to rebut what someone is doing or for a sanity check,” said Trugman.  “When used in conjunction with other tools, appraisers will be better able to support and defend their discount rate conclusions for their subject company,” Butler agreed.
