It is clear that the grossing-up technique implies the possibility of attributing to minorities a goodwill value that includes also the control premium: that means, ultimately, overestimating the accounting goodwill value. Adopting the full goodwill option, the process is different.

On the other hand, on the assets side is recorded the full value of the acquired fi rm’s goodwill (in our example equal to 30). This value also includes the goodwill attributable to the minorities. In this way the goodwill value represented on the assets side is independent from the extent of acquired capital share. Finally, a brief mention of another rare eventuality.

Having clarified these preliminary aspects, it is now possible to focus the attention on two particularly relevant issues, which are: • the methods for determining the cost of equity (ke); • the relation between cost of capital and the financial structure of the enterprise.
