Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
Duff & Phelps has announced it will provide the data previously published in Morningstar's Ibbotson® SBBI® Valuation Yearbook in its new publication, the 2014 Valuation Handbook—Guide to Cost of Capital, which will include all of the critical year-end data previously available in the SBBI Valuation Yearbook. The new Valuation Handbook will be timed to provide users of SBBI valuation data with a source of data to complete year-end valuations without interruption. To assist the valuation profession to learn about this new resource NACVA and ValuSource are offering a free webinar entitled "New Cost of Capital Data Sources" that will be presented by Roger Grabowski, managing director at Duff & Phelps and co-author of the upcoming 2014 Valuation Handbook-Guide to Cost of Capital. This free webinar will be held on Monday, February 24 and Monday, March 17 where Grabowski will discuss data sources and application of the book for business valuation and other financial analysis.
The new Valuation Handbook will include two sets of valuation data:
The Risk Premium Report has been published annually since 1996 and, like the former SBBI Yearbook, provides data and methodology to assist financial professionals in estimating the cost of equity capital for a subject company using the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) and various build-up models. While the Risk Premium Report will no longer be published as a stand-alone publication, all of its data will be included in the new Valuation Handbook.
New Cost of Capital Analyzer
ValuSource, NACVA’s valuation software and database affiliate, is developing a web-based Cost of Capital Analyzer which will include 10 years of Risk Premium Report data. The Analyzer will export cost of equity reports to Excel as well as download these reports to ValuSource’s valuation software (BVM Pro, ValuSource Pro, and Express Business Valuation). The Valuation Handbook data previously available in the SBBI Valuation Yearbook will also be available to be downloaded into the valuation software.

Grabowski to Keynote NACVA and the CTI's 2014 Annual Consultants' Conference
Roger Grabowski and Shannon Pratt will kick off NACVA and the CTI's 2014 Annual Consultants' Conference on the morning of Wednesday, June 18, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV, co-presenting “Cost of Capital Update.” Drawing from the upcoming Cost of Capital: Applications and Examples, 5th ed., which they co-author, the session "will inform conference attendees of recent research on the risk-free rate, equity risk premium, size premium, company-specific risk premium, and methods for directly estimating the cost of capital for closely held businesses,” states Grabowski. “After attending the session, conference attendees will be able to list the current research on, and criticisms of, commonly applied methods of estimating the cost of capital and have a clearer understanding of the divergent positions when estimating the cost of capital,” states Pratt.
Other Morningstar/Ibbotson Valuation Data That Are Being Discontinued
Morningstar announced in late September 2013 that it will no longer publish the Ibbotson SBBI Valuation Yearbook and other valuation publications and products. The SBBI Valuation Yearbook and other “Ibbotson” valuation products have been widely used and cited in valuation reports for nearly 15 years and are generally considered one of the essential tools needed in every practitioner’s toolbox. Last year’s 2013 SBBI Valuation Yearbook (with data through Dec. 31, 2012) is Morningstar’s last SBBI Valuation Yearbook—Morningstar will not be publishing a 2014 version (with data through Dec. 31, 2013).
While Ibbotson SBBI Valuation Yearbook may be the most familiar product to many practitioners, Morningstar is discontinuing other resources often used by practitioners as well: (i) hardcover books and downloadable PDF reports; and (ii) the Cost of Capital Resources website at CCRC.Morningstar.com (Note: the CCRC website was “switched off” on Dec. 31, 2013).
(1) Morningstar will continue to publish the SBBI Classic Yearbook, which provides an analysis of the relative performance of various asset classes in the U.S., but does not provide extensive valuation data or methodology.
