Overview

The Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance is an unparalleled source of information dedicated to the most important issues in modern finance. Each book focuses on a specific topic in the field of finance and contains contributed chapters from both respected academics and experienced financial professionals. As part of the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance, Capital Structure and Corporate Financing Decisions contains comprehensive insights on a major aspect of financial management—how capital structure and financing decisions contribute to maximizing the value of a firm.

While determining the precise financing mix to achieve this goal can be difficult, firms need to revisit their portfolio of debt, equity, and hybrid securities to successfully finance assets, operations, and future growth. That is why becoming familiar with this subject is essential.

Divided into four comprehensive parts, this timely guide contains detailed coverage that extends from the basic components of capital structure and existing theories to their application in an increasingly complex business world. Page by page, the book addresses topics that will put you in a better position to excel at this endeavor, including how corporate managers make financing decisions in practice; the economic, regulatory, and industry effects on capital structure; and the various aspects of raising capital to name a few.

Sound capital structure and informed financing decisions can lead to a reduction in a firm's cost of capital and an increase in shareholder value. Developing the critical skills required to make these decisions takes time, but with this book as your guide, you will gain a firm understanding of what you will need to succeed.
