Source: Charles University
This paper investigates the empirical evidence on determinants of financing decisions on the pool of respondents among financial managers of Czech firms. The theoretical section provides an overview of prominent contemporary theories on capital structure. Employing Chi-square Sign Test and Logit regression the empirical analysis provides the evidence how the financial managers perceive particular instruments of internal and external financing. The authors find that firms follow pecking order theory for working capital financing; however the arguments for pecking order theory in investment financing are not that strong.
