Unit 1 [GB550: Financial Management]
Unit 1 Final Project Overview:
The Final Project is due at the end of Unit 5.
The purpose of the Final Project Research Paper is to
examine capital-structure theory, issues, and
debates, while showing how capital-structure choices affect
a firm’s return on investment (ROI) and
its risk profile.
Your Assignment is to select a publicly-held company and to
analyze its capital structure, applying the
theories and principles found in Chapter 15 of the text.
The structure of your research paper should include:
? A preview of capital structure issues
? Business and financial risks related to capital structure
? Modigliani and Miller’s [MM] capital-structure theory
? Criticisms of the MM model and assumptions
? Capital structure evidence and implications
? Estimating the firm’s optimal capital structure
A firm’s optimal capital-structure is that mix of debt and
equity that maximizes the stock price. At any
point in time, management has a specific target capital
structure in mind, presumably the optimal one,
though this target may change over time. For example,
financial management may choose a 50%
equity financing [stock] and 50% debt [bond] financing.
Several factors influence a firms’ capital structure,
? Business risk
? Tax position
? The need for financial flexibility
? Managerial conservativeness
? Growth opportunities
Business risk is the riskiness inherent in the firm’s
operations if it uses no debt.
