"period preference rates"
Explanation:
SEE DEFINITION IN THE FOLLOWING:

The WACC-method is based on the fact that the providers of private capital (the shareholders) as well as the providers of borrowed capital (the debtors) claim payment for the capital which they placed at 1the disposal of the company. This claimed payment is based on : i) the so-called period preference rates (‘tijdvoorkeurvoet’), a payment due to the fact that the provider of equity capital cannot have command of his capital for a certain period, and ii) the risk attached to accommodating capital to the company in question.

Explanation:
I send you a text explaining the term:

The interconnection guideline ensures, as indicated in section 2.1, that KPN can be allowed a
reasonable rate of return on its investments. This so-called `reasonable rate of return on investment'
can be incorporated in KPN's tariffs for interconnection and special access. Following EDC-I and
based upon the arguments applied therein, the Commission determined the rate of return KPN can
apply according to the WACC-method, as defined in the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)26. This
method, which is widely supported by market parties27, was also used for the determination of the
price cap for KPN's end-user tariffs.

The principles underlying the WACC-method and its relevant parameters are further explained in
section 5.2. The determination of the relevant values of these parameters is explained in the next
section. The relevant WACC is determined on basis of these values in the last section and forms the
yardstick for a reasonable rate of return on investments (the Return on Assets, or the ROA), to be
applied by KPN.


5.2 The WACC method

The WACC-method is based on the fact that the providers of private capital (the shareholders) as well
as the providers of borrowed capital (the debtors) claim payment for the capital which they placed at
the disposal of the company. This claimed payment is based on : i) the so-called PERIOD PREFERENCE
RATES(`TIJDVOORKEURVOET'), a payment due to the fact that the provider of equity capital cannot have
command of his capital for a certain period, and ii) the risk attached to accommodating capital to
the company in question.
