A number of new enhancements to BVR’s Cost of Capital Professional platform were explained during a recent free webinar on March 6. Beta-adjusted size premia have been added in addition to the existing S&P-based size premia. Also, some practitioners use geometric mean returns and others use arithmetic mean returns, and you now have the ability to choose the one you prefer. The platform’s original version allowed you to estimate a cost of equity, but you can now enter inputs that will allow you to compute the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). Another enhancement is the ability to download to Excel user-selected variables and calculations, including citations of all sources used. You can also download your results and analysis into Word. In February, year-end 2018 equity risk premia and size premia were made available, the presenters noted during the webinar. To access a recording of the free webinar (which will be available soon), go to the Cost of Capital Professional webpage and click on “Free Webinar & Demo.”
