Why You Should Attend

On Friday, August 28 BVR will welcome Peter Butler and Keith Pinkerton, creators of the Butler Pinkerton Calculator (BPC) for a special one-hour free webinar.  Featuring the latest and best techniques for using what has become the preeminent tool to objectively quantify company-specific risk premiums (CSRPs) and total costs of equity (TCOEs) for guideline publicly-traded companies, this free event is the perfect chance to see the BPC in action with its creators.  Attendees to this free event will receive hands-on tutelage of the practical applications of the BPC – like the selection of inputs and analysis of results – through live examples, case studies, and Q&A.  After this one-hour presentation, attendees will be better able to support and defend their discount rate conclusions for their subject company.
