1. The various external sources of finance available to both companies. These sources of finance must be clearly identified, carefully explained and distinguished.
2. The possible considerations that may have been taken into account by the management when choosing the type of finance. All the relevant considerations explained and placed clearly in the context of the particular circumstances of the chosen public listed companies.
3. What are your conclusions and recommendations on their respective capital structures of the chosen companies?
