Based on the information that you learned about capital structure and budgeting, determine what the optimal capital structure should be for Gentry. You will need to determine how much equity (common stock) the company will offer in the IPO and how much debt the company should assume in their global expansion to meet the goal of $50 million.
Provide your recommendation in a 500-word APA formatted paper.
Determine what capital structure will work best with your initial assessment. Describe the structure using the ratios.
Include the dollar amount of equity (common stock) the company should issue in the IPO and how much debt the company should use for this expansion to reach the $50 million goal. Explain your rationale.
Note: there is no single answer to the question of the firm’s optimal capital structure. Your assessment is weighted more heavily toward your logical explanation rather than having the correct values for debt and equity.
