Final Project – Details and Rubric

Select a publicly held company and 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 firm’s capital structure, including:

● 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.

This report is intended to be a capital-structure analysis of your selected public company. Your paper is intended to be an executive summary of your analysis, and is limited to a minimum of 5–7 pages of text, excluding the title page, table of contents, graphs, charts, tables, etc.
