The subject of the study represents a well discussed topic in corporate governance area. Identifying the optimal capital structure of the companies and its determinants is a main issue in financial theory, as it has an important influence on companies' performance. The leverage of Romanian listed companies on Bucharest Stock Exchange (BSE) and RASDAQ market, based on the financial debt and the economic assets, is the object of a dynamic analysis for the period 2005-2006 using mainly descriptive statistics techniques. It emphasizes a phenomenon of homogenisation for the companies on RASDAQ and a relatively constant debt policy for the one listed on BSE. Moreover, this variable has been analysed in correlation with other financial ones in order to identify the potential of anticipation for future financing options Romanian listed companies.
