FIN 571 Week 3 DQ 1 NEW
The Long-Term funding strategy relies on long-term debt to finance both capital assets and working capital.
As a result, this strategy reduces risk since there is no need to consider refinancing assets since all funding
is long term.
How would a 'changing rate environment' impact the use of this strategy?

FIN 571 Week 3 DQ 2 NEW
Managers must think not only in terms of a trade-off or a pecking order theories but remain concerned with
how their financing decisions will influence the practical issues that they must deal with when managing a
business.
Financial flexibility is an important consideration in many capital structure decisions. As you pointed out,
managers must ensure that they retain sufficient financial resources in the firm to take advantage of
unexpected opportunities as well as unforeseen problems. They try to manage their firms' capital structures
in a way that limits the risk to a reasonable level.
How can managers use leverage and control to support their capital structure decisions?

FIN 571 Week 3 DQ 3 NEW
Short term funding strategy involves various sources of short-term financing such as:

Accounts payable (trade credit), bank loans, and commercial paper are common sources of short-term
financing.
Accounts payable constituted about 35 percent of total current liabilities for all publicly traded
manufacturing firms. The buyer needs to figure out whether it makes financial sense to pay early and take
advantage of the discount or to wait and pay in full when the account is due.
Short-term bank loans accounted for about 20 percent of total current liabilities for all publicly traded
manufacturing firms. An informal line of credit is a verbal agreement between the firm and the bank, allowing
the firm to borrow up to an agreed-upon upper limit.
In exchange for providing the line of credit, a bank may require that the firm holds acompensating balance
with them.
What are some other sources of short-term financing used with this strategy?
