Question

Consider a firm with this book value capital structure:

Interestâ€Bearing Debt =                       \$3,500

Common Stock Equity* =                     14,000

Financing Capital =                             \$17,500

*Market Value of Common Stock =        \$9,500.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
