On 18 May 2010 the Minister of Economic Affairs sent the SEO report of a study into The Value of Commercial Radio Licences to the House of Representatives. This provided the basis for the financial instrument in the draft renewal orders put forward in the consultations by Agentschap Telecom between 11 November and 22 December 2010. In response to these consultations the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation asked SEO Economic Research to assess whether the issues raised warrant revisions to the valuation study and a revaluation based on these revisions. Specifically, the Ministry asked SEO to look specifically at how the growth path for a new applicant for a nationwide licence was arrived at, the discount rate (WACC) used and how the cost of digitization was expressed in the valuation.
