Year-end 2013 data to replace the SBBI Valuation Yearbook are now available

February 26, 2014

Although the SBBI Valuation Yearbook has been discontinued, analysts can still complete their year-end 2013 valuations—and never miss a beat. By February 28, critical year-end data will be made available to everyone who preorders the new 2014 Valuation Handbook—Guide to Cost of Capital, published by Duff & Phelps and available as a print publication from BVR in late March 2014. If you order the new Valuation Handbook between now and when it’s available, you will receive “Key Year-End Data as of 12/31/13” as a PDF document via email. This document will be available starting February 28.

The new Valuation Handbook will include two sets of data: (1) all of the critical year-end data that were previously available in the now discontinued SBBI Valuation Yearbook; and (2) data available as part of Duff & Phelps' long-standing annual publication, the Risk Premium Report—all of which will be available as part of the powerful Risk Premium Calculator. The Calculator will also be updated with CRSP size premia and IRP data by the end of March. The Calculator also includes all historical risk premium reports back to 1998. The Handbook will be included with orders of a Risk Premium Calculator subscription and also available for purchase on its own.

Exact same data: Roger Grabowski (Duff & Phelps) said during a free BVR webinar that the new resource will use exactly the same data sources and same methodologies as the discontinued products. “I can assure you that the data and methodologies are consistent with what you received in last year’s Yearbook,” he says.

BVR applauds the incredible efforts of Grabowski, his colleague Jim Harrington, and the others at D&P for developing this critical new resource so quickly. By February 28, “you will be equipped to do any cost of capital calculation for year-end 2013,” Grabowski says.
