PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Business Valuation Resources, LLC (BVR) is pleased to announce The Advanced Workshop on Cost of Capital, an exclusive, interactive web workshop on August 8, 2013, with business valuation experts Kevin Yeanoplos, CPA/ABV/CFF, ASA, and Ron Seigneur, MBA, ASA, CPA/ABV/CFF, CVA.
In this 4-hour workshop, expert presenters Yeanoplos and Seigneur will thoroughly examine the state of cost of capital determination and discuss what every appraiser should know in today’s economy. Despite the age and ubiquity of cost of capital techniques, new questions are being asked regarding the application of data resources; the relative validity of CAPM and build-up methods; the relationship of size, liquidity, and other variables; and how to apply these methods in the face of economic turmoil.

Workshop agenda highlights include:
- How and when to apply the CAPM or build-up method
- How to best apply data available for cost of capital determination and how to avoid common errors
- What new research is saying about the relationship between cost of capital components and how to reconcile conflicting scholarship on the subject
