The New Industry Standard in Business Valuation Reference Materials


2015 Valuation Handbook ? Guide to Cost of Capital provides the key annual valuation data previously published in (i) the now discontinued Morningstar/Ibbotson SBBI® Valuation Yearbook (discontinued in 2013), and (ii) the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report (no longer published as a stand-alone publication).

 The size premia data previously published in the SBBI Valuation Yearbook is referred to as the ?CRSP Deciles Size Premia? exhibits in the new 2015 Valuation Handbook, while the size and risk premia data published in the Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report continues to be referred to as ?Risk Premium Report? exhibits. The Risk Premium Report has been published annually since 1996 and, like the former SBBI Valuation Yearbook, provides data and methodology that can be used to develop cost of equity capital estimates using (i) the build-up method and (ii) the capital asset pricing model (CAPM).

 The 2015 Valuation Handbook includes data through December 31, 2014, and is intended to be used for 2015 valuation dates.


 Key Features

  •  Key cost of capital inputs: The 2015 Valuation Handbook provides the key inputs needed for developing the cost of equity capital (i.e. ?discount rate) for use in estimating the value of a subject business, business ownership interest, security, or intangible asset. Inputs provided include: equity risk premia, size premia, risk premia over the risk free rate, full-information industry betas, industry risk premia, and risk-free yields.
  •  Discussion of topics that come up most when performing valuation analysis: The 2015 Valuation Handbook includes straightforward discussions about: (i) valuation theory, (ii) the differences between the various cost of capital estimation models (build-up, CAPM, Fama-French), (iii) understanding the basic building blocks of cost of equity capital (the risk-free rate, the equity risk premium, the size premium, beta, the industry risk premium, the company-specific risk premium), (iv) whether to ?normalize? risk-free rates or not, (v) a detailed comparison of the CRSP Deciles Size Premia Study (this is the former SBBI Valuation Yearbook data) and the Risk Premium Report Study, and more.
  •  Easy-to-follow examples: The 2015 Valuation Handbook is packed with easy-to-understand examples for properly using the data to develop levered, unlevered, and even ?high-financial-risk? cost of equity capital using various build-up methods and the CAPM (?).

Product Description: This is an annual yearbook that provides business valuation professionals with the data that they need to determine company risk and cost of capital. The data allows practitioners to perform income approaches to valuation without debating over the correct foundational risk rates. Also included are real-world examples and useful graphs that show the analyses. Note that the data provided is from the preceding year. This resource provides defensible cost of capital data of use in determining equity risk and size premia. Historical equity risk premiums and size premiums are provided for 25 size ranked portfolios using eight alternative measures of company size. The rate of return figures are also adjusted for factors that skew other equity risk premiums studies.
