Information

The influential variables in the capital structure decision are: keeping a balance between debt and equity and the cost of capital. Debt will always be cheaper than equity. The cost of capital is critical – if this declines from the business entities perspective the value of the business will increase. If business or financial risk can be reduced this will decrease the cost of capital.
