Financial leverage uses debt instruments so that the anticipated level return on the company's
the debt exceeds the amount of the profit then the effect of leverage is gone and the debt remains. To determine the return rate upon return of leverage simply calculate the difference among the rate of interest on assets and debts. And also the correlation between the current financial leverage ratio of the company and the middle leverage level. Another is the influences on business production and cycle of financial leverage. The level of financial leverage of a certain company is determined by getting the total value of debt and the equity and the ratio of debt. Companies having high leverage levels has lower flexible procedure because of the fact that they are more accountable for all the creditors and sometimes must fill some restrictions and agreements on their investments and capital use. then multiply the . There are four positions which show a relationship with the level of financial leverage. Lastly. Then the company's industry and branch whole financial Leverage level. Financial leverage ratio is relative to variability of profit and contrary to stability. they might not able to apply or utilize growth opportunities or expansion of business. First. Another factor that affects leverage ratio is the company's flexibility. If the company's profit relative amount to equity is higher. Company's profits with high rate leverage level differ with the same condition as with the company's profits with lesser leverage level.

The appropriation of a part of the economic cash flow introduces a conflict with outside shareholders who endure an expropriation. Ownership concentration may result in lower efficiency. It provides further support for the case of strong regulatory and capital market This article shows that the protection of minority shareholders from the block holders’ opportunism is as important for enterprise restructuring and development of an efficient system of corporate governance as protection against entrenched management. and develop a conceptual framework that analyses the effects of possible collusion between concentrated shareholders and fixed claim holders. and this effect depends on the identity of the largest shareholder. In this paper the aim to close some of these gaps between fixed-claim holders and dominant shareholders. This paper also underlines the joint problematic of the existence of private benefits and the one of the choice of debt are linked in the framework of financial governance. In this paper. In addition. the managers and the controlling shareholders elaborate and take the strategic decisions of the firm and appropriate for themselves a part of the gross economic profit. we extend this conclusion to an environment where debt finance is predominant and equity . measured as a ratio of a firm's debt to investment.

SDRA incorporates financial leverage into ordinary stochastic dominance (SD) and can significantly improve SD discriminatory power. However. are able to adjust financial leverage. Decision makers who are risk averse and do not willing to take risk. Because lower levels of the risk-free return make borrowing a more attractive alternative. Debt funds "leverage" the return to equity funds by magnifying both positive and negative returns. risk aversion is also very important. for example. By combining these two assumptions the company can reduce the set of strategies that merit managerial attention.students. no risk . a producer might use risk-management tools to reduce business risk and consequently reduce expected return. Each individual decision maker would leverage these strategies according to their own risk preferences. price hedging and output insurance. Most risk-management tools are designed to control business risks. this is especially important when evaluating risk-management strategies that present the decision maker with a reduced risk for decreased expected return trade-off. This article gives an indication of the importance of alternative assumptions about economic behavior in risk-management contexts and gives directions for future work in risk-management research and education. Thus. This article addresses the problem of choice among risk-management strategies and applies the stochastic dominance with risk-free asset (SDRA) criteria to address the choice problem. These results indicate that risk-management decisions should not be made without considering the impact of financial leverage. Summing up This article has discussed the qualities of using an updated alternative presentation as an introductory “hook” for a course module on the topic of financial leverage.

They derive the equilibrium prices and dynamics of all financial claims and identify the economic forces behind the dynamics of stock volatility and quantify the effect of financial leverage on the dynamics of stock volatility In the first economy the study is consistent with the assumptions macroeconomic conditions are fixed and financial leverage is the only driving force behind the dynamics of stock volatility. and are split into an exogenously specified risk less debt service and a dividend stream to equity holders. The driving force in this economy is counter-cyclical risk aversion caused by external habit formation in the representative agent’s preferences. The model is calibrated to several features of empirical asset prices. including the level and variation of the equity premium. The effect of financial leverage is studied both at a market and a firm level where the firm is exposed to both idiosyncratic and market risk.averse decision maker able to make this leverage adjustment would select a strategy not contained in this set. They study two different economies. and significant variation at the firm level where cash flow volatility is higher. Summary: In this article the writer quantify the effect of financial leverage on stock return volatility in a dynamic general equilibrium economy with debt and equity claims. In such an economy. have a constant volatility. In both economies. there is significant variation in stock return volatility at the market and firm level. the cash flows generated by a firm’s assets are specified exogenously. We simulate the economy and explore the time-series behavior of a firm’s stock returns and volatility allowing for both debt and equity. The second economy has a representative more realistic asset prices than in the first economy. In an economy that generates time-variation in interest rates and the price of risk. Financial leverage generates little variation at the market level where cash flow volatility is low. and the market price of risk. the risk less rate. financial leverage has little effect on the dynamics of stock return volatility at the .
and–without adjusting asset holdings–their leverage tends to be too low. and doing so in such a way that leverage is high during booms and low during recession. Summary: In a financial system where balance sheets are continuously marked to market. When asset prices increase. The evidence points to financial intermediaries adjusting their balance sheets actively. and they will attempt to find ways in which they can employ their surplus capital. we may . Financial leverage contributes more to the dynamics of stock return volatility for a small firm. The financial intermediaries then hold surplus capital. asset price changes show up immediately as changes in net worth. financial intermediaries’ balance sheets generally become stronger. However. the firm’s financial leverage can move independent of market conditions in contrast to our market-wide analysis. The discussion focuses on the intermediaries balance sheets. our analysis provides some support that financial leverage drives the dynamics of stock volatility at the firm level. Change in leverage and change in balance sheet size would then be negatively related. If financial intermediaries were passive and did not adjust their balance sheets to changes in net worth. there are aggregate consequences of such behavior for the financial system as a whole that might not be taken into consideration by individual institutions. and obtain responses from financial intermediaries who adjust the size of their balance sheets. and the market-wide consequences of such reactions.market level. This feature is driven by individual risk influencing the firm’s equity value and not the firm’s debt value. Aggregate liquidity can be understood as the rate of growth of the aggregate financial sector balance sheet. From the point of view of each institution. the added insight from discussions is on the way that marking to market enhances the role of market. Overall. then leverage would fall when total assets rise. However. Aggregate liquidity can be seen as the rate of change of the aggregate balance sheet of the financial intermediaries. Hence. In analogy with manufacturing firms. decision rules that result are readily understandable. The focus in this paper is on the reactions of the financial intermediaries to changes in their net worth.
