Why You Should Attend:

With the many changes that come with a new year, none could be more pertinent or useful to BV practitioners than the publishing of the 2010 Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report.  Authored by Roger Grabowski and David King, this report offers even more defensible cost of capital measures than previous editions – particularly for small target companies – through historical equity risk premiums (ERPs) and size premiums for 25 size-ranked portfolios using 8 alternative measures of company size.

On Thursday, February 18 author Roger Grabowski will join us for “Using the 2010 Duff & Phelps Report: Learn from the Master”.  Through the course of his 100-minute presentation, Grabowski will highlight everything you need to know to put this powerful valuation tool to work, and will answer your questions along the way.  And as a special bonus, buy the 2010 Duff & Phelps Risk Premium Report and attend this teleconference for free.
