Abstract

The aim of this paper is to reveal the factors affecting capital structure. In the paper, the factors affecting capital structure is examined by testing 77 Turkish manufacturing firms traded on Borsa Istanbul, with 308 observations from 2010 to 2013. Non-manufacturing firms were not included in the study since their incentives are different compared to manufacturing firms.
