State three main advantages of debt finance over equity finance. Answer Debt financing does not dilute the control over the company, whereas in equity financing the control is diluted for the existing owners. Interests on debt are tax-deductible, whereas dividends to equity holders are not. Issue cost is significantly lower for debt financing compared to that of equity financing. Question 49.3 Differentiate between promissory notes, bonds, and debentures. Answer Promissory notes, given to banks, can generate funds needed for short-term (2 – 5 years) needs. Bonds and debentures help in generating funds for long-term needs. Bonds are long-term unsecured notes issued by government, government undertakings, and financial institutions, whereas debentures are secured debts that are issued by private.

    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.
