MEO's cost of capital rate applicable to the 2016 financial year - public consultation

On 25 May 2016, ANACOM approved a draft decision on MEO's cost of capital rate, as applicable to the 2016 financial year.

It is deemed important to modify the methodology used for calculating the parameters defined in ANACOM's determination of 5 December 2013, specifically as regards the risk-free interest rate, the debt premium and the risk premium, as well as to review the comparable companies base.

It was decided to submit the draft decision to a prior hearing of interested parties and to the general consultation procedure. Under these procedures, interested parties are given a period of 20 working days to comment. As such, comments should be sent by email to consulta.ccapital@anacom.ptmailto:consulta.ccapital@anacom.pt1 no later than 28 June 2016.

Once the consultation process has been concluded, the contributions received will be made public. Therefore, for the purposes of publication on this website, interested parties should also submit a non-confidential version of their responses excluding items considered confidential.

1 Each email may contain one or more files as long as the total size of all files does not exceed 10 megabytes and, if necessary, comments may be divided into two or more emails.
