The financial repercussion of cost, revenue and profit: an extension in the BEP and CVP analysis



The study measures the impacts of the profitability factors on the capital structure of a firm. A simulation analysis has been applied in the study and the impacts of Cost, Revenue, Profit, Tax Liability and Dividend have been tested. It has been found that capital growth of a firm does not depend on the profitability factors. However, the factors of the profitability are important in determination of the liquidity position of a firm. It is interesting that a large number of studies have measured the effects of capital structure on the profitability, but the present study measured the effect of the profits' factors on the capital structure of a firm.
