Webinar: Applying the Cost of Capital – Part 2: Mechanics in Excel

Webinar: Applying the Cost of Capital – Part 2: Mechanics in Excel

January 25, 2021

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

In Part 1, we introduced you to the concept of the cost of capital and how to compute it, whether you have equity capital, debt capital, or both. We addressed the options for its computation for private entities that lack a history of trading in their equity securities (common and preferred stock). Then we discussed the way WACC is used to measure the success or failure of the business enterprise and how it is used to test the viability of major asset investments, acquisitions, and business startup decisions.


All capital, the money tribal organizations/enterprises have available for investments and other projects, has a cost (or demand for yield) associated with it. In this webinar, you will learn what the cost of capital is and how to compute the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). The course also touches on how to compute the individual costs - the cost of debt and cost of equity. This webinar is for accounting and finance personnel, and young professionals entering into tribal finance and accounting.


Join us on Monday, January 25 at 1:00 pm EST. The webinar is free and open to the public.
