The 2015 International Valuation Handbook-Industry Cost of Capital includes industry-level cost of capital estimates (cost of equity, cost of debt, and WACC), for four global economic regions (the “World”, the European Union, the Eurozone, and the United Kingdom), in three currencies (€ EUR, £ GBP, $ USD). This book also provides detailed industry-level statistics for sales, market capitalization, capital structure, various levered and unlevered beta estimates (e.g. ordinary-least squares (OLS) beta, sum beta, peer group beta, downside beta, etc.), valuation (trading) multiples, financial and profitability ratios, equity returns, aggregate forward-looking earnings-per-share (EPS) growth rates, and more. An optional semi-annual update will also be available.
These resources are designed to assist financial professionals in estimating the cost of equity capital, a key component in computing a discount rate for valuing businesses and assets, as well as establishing hurdle rates for investment projects.
