*Mechanics of Moving to the Optimal
a. If your firmâ€™s actual debt ratio is different from its â€œrecommendedâ€ debt ratio, how should they get from the actual to the optimal? In particular,
i. should they do it gradually over time or should they do it right now?
ii. should they alter their existing mix (by buying back stock or retiring debt) or
should they take new projects with debt or equity? b. What type of financing should this firm use? In particular,
i. should it be short term or long term? ii. what currency should it be in?
iii. what special features should the financing have?
