Unlevered Beta Spreadsheet

The Beta is a measure of the risk of a company. In general, when considering the risks of a company, we can categorize them into financial and business risks. The business risk relates to the risk of running the business while financial risk relates to the risk of borrowing money for running the business. Sometimes, it is useful to just compare the business risk of the different companies without the effects of the financial risk. Or in other words, compare risks without the effects of leverage.

Unlevering a Beta allows us to remove the financial risk or effects of leverage, i.e. to consider the risk of a company assuming it has zero debt.
