Duff & Phelps has published a new book, 2015 Valuation Handbook-Industry Cost of Capital. Previously published by Morningstar/Ibbotson® in the Cost of Capital Yearbook, the new book includes cost of capital estimates for over 200 U.S. industries.

The new resource will help finance professionals estimate the cost of capital, an essential input to calculate the feasibility of every merger and acquisition transaction and other strategic investments. In addition to detailed industry data, the book also includes statistics that can be used for benchmarking purposes, including industry performance data as compared to the S&P 500, valuation multiples and capital structure data, including “off-balance sheet debt” by industry.
