Dan Harris and Richard Caldwell to Deliver Keynote Presentations for the European Commission’s WACC Workshop on Legacy and Next Generation Networks in the EU

Brattle Principals Dan Harris and Richard Caldwell will give the keynote presentations at the European Commission’s Workshop on The Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) for Legacy and Next Generation Networks in Telecoms Regulation, taking place in Brussels on January 20, 2016.

The event will focus on a Commission-funded study, carried out by The Brattle Group, which will develop guidelines for estimating a reasonable rate of return for legacy and NGA investments in telecoms networks, in the context of cost-oriented pricing regulation. The final aim is to ensure greater consistency in the way the WACC is determined by National Regulatory Authorities across the EU. Mr. Caldwell and Mr. Harris will present their interim findings at the conference. The conference will be attended by representatives from EU National Regulatory Authorities, the Body of European Regulators of Electronic Communications (BEREC), EU trade associations, telecoms operators, financial experts, think tanks and academics.
