    hi there
    can someone explaine me why other non cash items(in year 2006) amounted to 20 m have NOT been added back to capital employed. My logic is that the opening balance of capital employed in year 2007 is 506(book value)+16(lease in 2006)+20(non cash items in 2006) = 542! not 522
    thanks in advance!

      @meesammeesam, There is an argument for using the current capital structure (although market values – never balance sheet values).
      However, the logic is that we really need the cost of future capital (not the existing – the existing capital is already invested whether good or bad) and that is why the gearing that they are aiming for is more sensible. (Also, that example was ‘stolen’ from an examiners article and he used 70:30)

      lectures work ok, your problem relates most likely to firewall, your home/office or internet provider firewall,
      please contact your internet provider to look into this

    Great lecture!. Love it.
    I however, have one question that is bordering me.
    why do we use the target capital structure and not the actual/current capital structure of the entity.
