Question:

Why is it important to have an Optimal Capital Structure?

Haydn G.
Answer:

An optimal Capital structure requires both Debt Funding and Equity Funding and is used in order to create value over the short, medium and long term for its Shareholders. Shareholders want to see growth and high profits. The return on Equity will increase as long as your EBIAT (Earnings before interest, after tax) as a percentage of total assets is greater than your after tax cost of debt. To much debt raises the required return expected by shareholders and this therefore increases your weighted average cost of capital. The optimal capital mix is required in order to keep the weighted average cost of capital as low as possible but at the same time maximizing profits.
