Capital Structure: The mix of debt and equity that makes up a company’s total market value. The debt to equity ratio D/E: market value of outstanding debt divided by the market value of equity. The debt to market value ratio D/V: D/V= D/(D+E) These previous measures are measured using market value of equity and debt. If it is difficult to obtain the market value of debt, use book values.

FINS1613S12011 Kyung Hwan Shim 6 Corporate Borrowing and Homemade Leverage Homemade leverage: the use of personal borrowing/lending to change the overall amount of financial leverage to which the individual is exposed. Example: Suppose the firm did not change its capital structure. We will show that investors can replicate the returns from the proposed capital structure by borrowing on their own. Suppose a shareholder wants to invest $100 in the firm, and prefers the proposed rather than the current capital structure. If the proposed capital structure is not adopted, he buys 5 shares with his own money, and additional 5 shares by borrowing $100 at 10% interest. So he replicates the returns under the proposed capital structure while the cost of the investment is the same.
