I am valuing a US company with a substantial revenue stream from Korea and Japan. I want to calculate the cost of equity. Some key details for the company  45% of revenue from Korea and 31% from Japan. According to data on your website country risk premiums for both the countries are 6.28% and 5.75% respectively. Assuming that Koreans companies generate roughly 70% revenue from Korea and Japanese companies have 60% revenue coming from Japan. Assuming 5% implied risk premium for developed markets Can you please tell me the cost of equity equation given this data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you should use not Total risk premiums for Korea and Japan, but Country risk premiums that are 1.2% and 0.75% respectively. We also need: 1.) Risk free rate. We can assume it is 3.4% 2.) Beta for your company. 3.) Lambda for Korea [% of revenue from Korea] / [1 (Korea’s Export/ Korea’s GDP)] =[45%] / [149.9%] = 0.8982 4.) Lambda for Japan [% of revenue from Japan] / [1(Japan's Export/ Japan's GDP)] =[31%] / [112.5%]=0.3543 So, cost of equity is 3.4% + (Beta * 5%) + (Lambda for Korea * 1.2%) + (Lambda for Japan * 0.75%) = 0.034% + (Beta*0.05) + (0.8982*0.012)+(0.3543*0.0075)
