The Valuation Journal, 2017, vol. 12, issue 1, 94-121

Abstract: For unlisted companies, the lack of information on the market price of shares or debts make it more difficult to calculate the volatility coefficient. As with any investment in financial securities, investing in unlisted companies is subject to market risk and specific risk. The return and implicitly the risk to which financial securities are subject are influenced by both internal and external factors. The volatility coefficient calculation in this case involves either methods based on comparisons with the volatility coefficients of listed companies (bottom-up method) or by methods based on linear or multiple regression. The purpose of this study is to present these methods and also to highlight that a pertinent estimation of the risk to which the shares or equity shares of unlisted companies are subject involves a corroboration of these methods. In this study the theory was expanded through a practical case regarding the calculation of the volatility coefficient of an unlisted company from the pharmaceutical.
