Empirical examinations of capital structure have led some to conclude that firms are underlevered. Implicit in this argument and much of the empirical work on leverage is the assumption that the availability of incremental capital depends solely on the risk of the firm's cash flows and characteristics of the by:   However, in this article, we document that the source of the firm’s debt, and whether it has access to the public debt markets, strongly influences its capital structure choice.

Preferred returns can be structured in many ways, and the ultimate tax characterization of those returns will naturally de-pend on the structure used.

To the extent the payments are dependent on profits, such as a fixed. Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) is defined as the weighted average of cost of each component of capital (equity, debt, preference shares etc) where the weights used are target capital structure weights expressed in terms of market values.

We will discuss the difference between book value WACC and market value weights and why market value weights are preferred over book value weights. A loan by a business owner to their business does not affect the owner's capital account.

The owner loan increases the business's liability. Loan payments to the owner are set by the terms of the loan agreement.

The theory relies on two basic assumptions: 1. Firm’s cash flows are not affected by financing. Financial markets are perfect. The cost of capital depends on the risk, and hence primarily on the use of the funds, not the source. Firm's overall cost of capital reflects the required rate of return on the firm's assets as a whole.

This overall cost of capital is called the weighted average cost of capital, and reflects the costs of debt, equity, and preferred stock. mix of these two, called the “capital structure” decision, is an important choice every business makes.
