<p>Advantages of ordinary share capitalShareholders have the right to vote Shareholders have the ability to elect the board of</p> <p>directors Shareholders are able to buy as many new stocks as possible</p> <p>Disadvantages of ordinary shareShare prices fluctuate a lot, which short term oriented</p> <p>investors find very distressing. Some companies go broke, and due to the occasional dishonest auditor you won't be able to see it coming. Therefore you need to diversify a lot, though this is easy to do since you can buy small amounts of shares. Shares require analysis and hard work if you are going to do better than average.</p> <p>Advantages of preference share capitalPreference shares has no interference with the</p> <p>management of the company. It makes the capital structure of a company to be flexible. Preference share has nothing to do with companies in the mortgage of its asset.</p> <p>Disadvantages of preference share capitalIt is a fixed burden on the company because company has</p> <p>to pay dvident at fixed rate. Company pays tax on the dividend also after paying for preference.</p> <p>Advantages of Bonds and DebenturesDebenture holders have no right to participate in</p> <p>management. Interest on debenture is deducted from the taxable income of the company. Increase in debenture also increases the interest or income of share holders.</p> <p>Disadvantages of Bonds and Debentures Debenture interest and capital repayment are obligatory</p> <p>payments. The protective covenants associated with a debenture issue may be restrictive. Debenture financing enhances the financial risk associated with the firm.</p> <p>Advantages of long term debtThe cost is limited and known and cheaper than the cost</p> <p>of equity (because it is less risky to the investor who therefore requires a lower required rate of return). The interest is tax-deductible, unlike dividend payments, which makes the cost even cheaper in comparison to equity. There is no dilution of control when debt is issued.</p> <p>Disadvantages of long term debtThere is always the possibility of default if income is low.</p> <p>The company must pay interest, even if it means taking out additional debt to do so. The cost of equity rises as more debt is used. The higher leverage results in higher risk to shareholders who will require a higher rate of return.</p> <p>Advantages of leasing financeLeasing better utilizes equipment; you lease and pay for</p> <p>equipment only for the time you need it. There is typically an option to buy equipment at end of lease term. You can keep upgrading; as new equipment becomes available you can upgrade to the latest models each time your lease ends. Typically, it is easier to obtain lease financing than loans from commercial lenders. It offers potential tax benefits depending on how the lease is structured.</p> <p>Disadvantages of leasing financeNo ownership: The main disadvantage of leasing is that</p> <p>you never own the product. You have an obligation to continue making payments. Typically, leases may not be terminated before the original term is completed. You have no equity until you decide to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease term, at which point the equipment has depreciated significantly.</p> <p>Cost of capital[WACC] weighted average cost of capital Cost of debts: cost of equity cost of preference shares:</p> <p>Weight Average Cost of CapitalThe formula for the above measures=</p> <p>(Ke*E) + Ka(1-</p> <p>t)*D/ E+ (D) = is the cost of the use of equity capital, provided by the shareholders, and investors. (I) = is the cost of the use of debt capital provided by capital lenders. The average between the rate of dividend and the rate if interest, is the average cost of capital.</p> <p>Cost of Debt Cost of debt, rd(I-T) , is also used to calculate (WACC) . Cost of debt is= interest rate on new debt- Tax savings = rd-rdT =rd(I-T) E.g. if allied can borrow at an interest rate of 10% and its marginal federal plus-state tax rate is 40%, its cost of debt will be 6%. Cost of debt is=rd I-T)=10%(1.0-0.4) =10% 0.6) =6.0%</p> <p>Cost of preference sharecost of preference share = rp =DP/Pp E.g allied sold some stock to a few large hedge fund, the</p> <p>stock would have a $10.00 dividend per share and it will be priced at $97.50 a share. Thereby allied cost of preference stock would be $10.3%. Rp = $10.00/$97.50 = 10.3%</p> <p>Cost of CapitalMinimum required return / cost of capital= that</p> <p>particular discount rate k that makes NPV = 0. ! The return generated by a security is the cost of that security to the company that issued it. cost of capital to the firm = reward to investors. ! The cost of capital depends primarily on the use of funds, i.e., the risk of the CFs, not on the source. Q risk of CFs (systematic risk) Q company capital structure</p> <p>Importance of cost of capital on capital structureCost of capital helps in making decision as to</p> <p>whether or not to invest in productive asset such as plant, and machinery, coporate acquisition, working capital, and the like. Cost of capital is also used to maximize the value of the existing share holder equity investment.</p> <p>Cost of capital helps to accomplish the ends</p> <p>of net present value by accepting all project that are expected to be positive. Cost of capital helps to save high capital</p> <p>value on financial decisions everyday. </p> <p>IMPORTANCE OF CAPITAL STRUCTURE</p> <p>It makes economic sense for the firm to strive</p> <p>to minimize the cost of using financial capital.

It uses all cash flows occurring over the entire life of the project in calculating its worth. Hence, it is a measure of the projects true profitability.</p> <p>Value additively. The discounting process</p> <p>facilitates measuring cash flows in terms of present values that is in terms of equivalent, current $. Shareholder value. The net present value (NPV) method is always consistent with the objective of the shareholder value maximization. This is the greatest virtue of the method.</p> <p>PROFITABILITY INDEXTime value. It recognizes the time value of</p> <p>money. Value maximization. It is consistent with the shareholder value maximization principle. A project with profitability index grater than one will have positive net present value (NPV) and if accepted, it will increase shareholders wealth.</p> <p>Relative profitability. In the profitability index</p> <p>(PI) method, since the present value of cash inflows is divided by the initial cash outflow, it is a relative measure of a projects profitability.</p>
