So conservatism decrease litigation cost to the firm and limits management’s opportunistic behaviour. If a firm is reporting continuous profits and then goes bankrupt a shareholder is likely to sue but if a firm is reporting losses and then goes bankrupt shareholders will sell their shares eventually. Basically, firms are more likely to be used if they are being less conservative and less likely to be used if they are being more conservative. Watts’ accounting regulation explanations and evidence have important implications for accounting regulators (Watts 2003).
This forces the acquirer company to raise its bid in order to stay competitive with the target’s offer and also increase the use of leverage in the target’s capital structure, which can make the target less attractive takeover candidate. d) Leverage Capitalization As part of this strategy, the target assumes a large amount of debt that is used to finance share repurchases. Like the share repurchases, the effect here is to create a significant change in the capital structure that makes the target less attractive while delivering value to the shareholders. e) Crown Jewel Defense After a hostile takeover, the target may decide to sell a subsidiary or major asset to a neutral third party.

If employers are paying employees more then they will raise costs to offset the added expenses. This will cause the buying power of the dollar to decrease, making it so people who received the minimum wage increases will not be making any more money than they otherwise would’ve, and people who did not have their pay increased, will be making even less money then they had used too. This would do nothing but increase the poverty rate even higher, doing exactly the opposite of what the counter argument says it would.

Recapitalization can also be considered for several reasons such as defense against malicious acquisition by another company or to reduce taxation. Companies most of the times want to increase their debt: equity ratio so as to buffer liquidity of the company. Basically speaking, when a firm’s debt reduces in the proportion of equity, the leverage level also lower hence “ceteris paribus” its gains per each share should also reduce following the adjustment.
