CAPITALISATION According to Gerstenbug, capitalization is that which "comprises of a company's ownership capital which includes capital stock and surplus in whatever form it may appear and borrowed capital which consists of bonds or similar evidences of long-term debt“.

TRADING ON EQUITY The use of long term fixed interest bearing debt and preference share capital along with equity shares is called Financial Leverage or Trading on Equity.


IMPORTANCE The long term fixed interest bearing debt is employed by a firm to earn more from the use of these sources than their cost so as to increase the return on owner’s equity. Capital structure cannot affect the total earning of a firm but it can affect the share of earnings available for equity shareholders.

The management is planning to raise another Rs.25 lakhs to finance a major programme of expansion and is considering three alternative methods of financing: To issue 25,000 equity shares of Rs.100 each To issue 25,000, 8% debentures of Rs.100 each To issue 25,000, 8% preference shares of Rs.100 each The company’s expected earnings before interest and taxes will be Rs.8 lakhs.

OVER-CAPITALIZATION Definition : When an enterprise possesses excess of assets in relation to its requirement. An over capitalized company can be like a very fat person who cannot carry his weight properly. Such a person is prone to many diseases and is certainly not likely to be sufficiently active. Unless the condition of overcapitalization is corrected, the company may find itself in great difficulties.

Slide 11:

A company is said to be over capitalized when its earnings are not sufficient to yield a fair return on the amount of shares or debentures. In other words, when a company is not in a position to pay dividends and interests on its shares and debentures at fair rates, it is said to be over capitalized. It means that an over-capitalized company is unable to pay a fair return on its investment.


CAUSES OF OVER CAPITALIZATION Some of the important reasons of over-capitalization are: Idle funds Over-valuation Fall in value Inadequate depreciation provision Floating of excess capital. Purchasing property at an inflated price. Borrowings at a higher than normal rate. Purchase of assets in the boom period. High rates of taxation. Liberal dividend policy.
