A corporation can get capital by borrowing. It is called debt funding. If a corporation borrows money, they give notes or bonds. They are also negotiable. But the interest has to be paid out whether the business is profitable or not. When running a corporation, management must consider both the outflow and the inflow of the capital.

Lesson 7


Corporations need financing for the purchase of assets and the payment of expenses. The corporations can issue shares in exchange for money or property. Sometimes it is called "equity" funding. The holders of the shares form the ownership of the company. Each share is represented by a stock certificate, which is negotiable. It means that one can buy and sell it. The value of a share is determined by the net assets divided by the total number of shares outstanding. The value of the share also depends on the success of the company. The greater the success, the more value the shares have.

A corporation can get capital by borrowing. It is called debt funding. If a corporation borrows money, they give notes or bonds. They are also negotiable. But the interest has to be paid out whether the business is profitable or not.

When running a corporation, management must consider both the outflow and the inflow of the capital. The outflow is formed by the purchase of inventory and supplies, payment of salaries. The inflow is formed by the sale of goods and services. In the long run the inflow must be greater than the outflow. It results in a profit.

In addition, a company must deduct its costs, expenses, losses on bad debts, interest on borrowed capital and other items. It helps to determine if the financial management has been profitable. The amount of risk involved is also an important factor. It determines the fund raising and it shows if a particular corporation is a good investment.

It's so nice to see you, Frank. Sorry, I couldn't come to your office today.


Never mind. Have a seat. Let's start by having some coffee.



So, Frank, I guess it might be right time for me to invest in that computer company. As my stockbroker, what can you suggest?


I am sure they are doing extremely well and they would welcome your investment.


But why do they need my investment if they are doing so well?


OK. I think I should explain to you a little about corporate finance.


Go ahead. If it concerns my money I am always interested.


If a corporate enterprise wants to expand it need financing.


You are right.


So, there are two basic types of financing – equity and debt.


What's the difference between them?


If the money is supplied by the owners of the business, it is called equity funding. And the use of money supplied by loans is called debt funding.


So, as investor, what am I?


Well, as an investor you become a partial owner of a business and receive equity. You get shares or certificates of common stock which represent your portion of ownership.


You did right buying the stock for me. By the way, are there any documents, which show the financial state of the company?


Oh, yes. You've just reminded me. I've brought a copy of the company's Annual Report for you to look over. You should read it very carefully. And if you have anything to ask, do it, please.


Thanks a lot, Frank. I will. Does this company pay dividends on its stock?


Yes. In fact, I’ve studied their annual report and I can say that they have good management. Their business is doing very well; the value of their stock has been rising. It can be an excellent long-term investment, I am sure.


But if I want to sell my shares very soon?


No problem. Undoubtedly you can make profit on the sale. But it seems to me you'll want to keep this company in your portfolio.


Thank you for your advice. You are wise as usual.


Well, my advice now is to study the Annual Report of the company. You need several days for that. Then we'll meet and talk again.
