These two ratios measure the proportion of funds the company has raised from creditors as opposed to owners. They indicate how much “leverage” the firm has in its capital structure. The basic trade-off a company makes in determining the “right” ratio (i.e., capital structure) is between the risks inherent in taking on fixed debt obligations versus the opportunity to increase the shareholders’ profitability by having some debt in the capital structure. (A more detailed study of capital structure decisions is covered in finance courses.) Problem 9–2 a. Basic earnings per share = 83 . 7 $ shares 2,000,000 ) $3,900,000 00 ($19,550,0 = - b.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
