Based on the statement of Cash Flows of Jollibee, it is financed both by debt and equity. Because of the nature of the business, the company is constantly cash rich, and for this reason, the company doesn’t require short term loans that are traditionally used as a revolver for the company’s daily operations. The company will only take on long term debts in the event it plans to make acquisitions. And also with the help of the capital structure, it is easier to identify the sources of financing.
Equity financing often means issuing additional shares of common stock to an investor. With more shares of common stock issued and outstanding, the previous stockholders' percentage of ownership decreases.
Debt financing means borrowing money and not giving up ownership. Debt financing often comes with strict conditions or covenants in addition to having to pay interest and principal at specified dates. Failure to meet the debt requirements will result in severe consequences. Adding too much debt will increase the company's future cost of borrowing money and it adds risk for the company. III.
