DEBT VERSUS EQUITY FINANCING 28 Debt financing is a double edged sword. Leveraged companies can magnify their returns in booms, but in slumps, they lose the edge and can even go bankrupt. Debt financing results in a zero-sum game in which at least one stakeholder i.e. shareholders or creditors suffer. Equity financing ensures normal returns in booms and survival in slumps. Therefore, the company will not be squeezed of liquidity as interest expense as an ‘autonomous expense’ will not feature as a significant portion of total operating expenses.
