Abstract [en]

Purpose: The thesis purpose is to, with regards to relevant theories, explain how the variables industry affiliation, growth, uniqueness and tangiability affect modern, swedish firms capital structure.

Method: A quantitative method along with a deductive approach has been used to make this study. Multiple regression analysis has been applied in order to identify statistical relationships between various variables.

Conclusion: The empirical results can only to a certain degree confirm what the theories are claiming. The statistical relationship the growth, profitability, uniqueness in a firm has with leverage is negative. Moreover, tangibility turned out to have a positive relationship to leverage, which coincides with said theories.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Uppsatsens syfte är att utifrån relevanta teorier förklara hur variablerna lönsamhet, branschtillhörighet, tillväxt, unikhet och tillgångsstruktur påverkar svenska bolags kapitalstruktur.

Metod: En kvantitativ metod med deduktiv ansats har använts för att möjliggöra denna studie. Multipel regressionsanalys har tillämpats för att statistiskt kunna identifiera samband mellan olika variabler.

Slutsats: Resultatet stämmer nästan genomgående med teoriernas antaganden. Sambandet mellan tillväxt, lönsamhet, unikhet mot skuldsättningen är negativt. Det visade sig dessutom att det finns ett positivt samband mellan tillgångsstruktur och skuldsättningsgrad, vilket stämmer med vad teorierna hävdar.
