  Debt to equity ratio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The debt to equity ratio (D/E) is a financial ratio debt divided by shareholders' equity.
The composition of equity and debt and its influence on the value of the firm is much debated and also described in the Modigliani-Miller theorem.
In a cost of capital calculation the equity in the debt/equity ratio is the market value of all equity (all shares), not just shareholders' equity.

 Fool.com: A Definition [Return on Equity]
Return on equity is calculated by taking a year's worth of earnings and dividing them by the average shareholder's equity for that year.
Shareholder's equity can be found on the balance sheet and is simply the difference between the total assets and total liabilities, as it is assumed that assets without corresponding liabilities are the direct creation of the shareholder's capital that got the business started in the first place.
Shareholder's equity is an accounting convention that represents the assets that have actually been generated by the business.

 New Safe Harbor Retirement Distribution Notice
For each compensation plan under which equity securities of the company are authorized for issuance which was not adopted with shareholder approval, there must be a brief description in narrative form of "the material features" of the plan.
The equity plan/arrangement filing requirement is a significant new requirement and will require all public companies to consider whether they need to file certain of their compensation plans or contracts which previously had not been filed.
If shareholder action is being requested to amend an existing equity compensation plan, the table should include information about the securities previously authorized for issuance under the plan but not the additional securities which are the subject of the plan amendment for which shareholder approval is sought.

 Return on equity is calculated by taking a year
Breaking return on equity into these component parts not only allows the investor to determine what the kind of return on equity is being generated by a company, but also to examine the quality of that return as well as which financial levers management is pulling to create it.
With stockholder's equity of $20.3 million in 1995 and $41.3 million in 1996, this meant that the debt-to-equity ratio jumped from 8.9% in 1995 to 74.6% in 1996, a pretty massive leap.
By looking at trends in return on equity and analyzing the components, the investor is forced to not only examine the much overlooked Statement of Operations, or the Income Statement, but also to balance this against the left and right sides of the Balance Sheet.

Collectively, the nation's nine major passenger carriers saw all $15.7 billion of shareholder equity on their books at the end of 2001 vanish in 2002.
They ended last year with a combined negative shareholder equity of $2 billion — the amount by which liabilities exceeded their assets.
But coupled with soaring debt levels, dwindling equity means that the airlines have little remaining ability to borrow money to cover their continuing huge losses.

 Shareholder Loans   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Often it comes to our attention that a shareholder has made or is about to make a loan to his or her closely held corporation.
If there is more than one shareholder, then California law, and the laws of other states generally, require that the loan be approved by a majority of the shareholders other than the lending shareholder; and if the corporation's bylaws require more than majority approval, then the required super-majority approval must be obtained.
In order to establish conclusively that the required approvals of disinterested shareholders and directors have been obtained, the shareholders and the board of directors, by the proper votes, should adopt resolutions establishing the need for funds, stating how the funds will be used, and approving the loan.

 Fannie Omits Shareholder Equity
There had been a small recovery in shareholders' equity in the fourth quarter of 2003 as interest rates rose.
The only reference Fannie made to its equity was a note in its earnings release that said it would be providing equity data in its first quarter 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Another indication that the first-quarter may have been a tough one for Fannie was that it scaled back its debt repurchase cost from the year-earlier total.

From 1999 to 2001, the company's shareholder equity declined by 26 percent, from $3.9 billion to $2.9 billion.
And its shareholder equity in 2000 would have risen by another $65.6 million had it not been for a currency translation loss that year.
Of course, the swings in shareholder equity due to currency translation would have been greater still at these companies without their hedging efforts.

 Brad DeLong's Semi-Daily Journal: Accounting and Reality
Such a change may even wipe out most or all of the auto maker's shareholder equity, which is another way of saying that when all of GM's liabilities are subtracted from its total assets, little or nothing may be left.
In theory, shareholder equity is the value left for investors if a company were to liquidate itself and pay off all of its creditors.
As of the end of 2004, GM's equity was $27.7 billion, so this approach would have slashed the equity as of that point to $3.2 billion.

 Updates from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP - SEC Amends Disclosure Requirements Relating to Equity Compensation Plans   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The SEC recently adopted amendments to its disclosure requirements relating to equity compensation plans to require additional information provided in annual reports filed on Forms 10-K and 10-KSB, and in proxy and information statements when the company is submitting a compensation plan for shareholder approval.
The above information must be divided into two categories, based on whether or not the compensation plan was approved by shareholders.  Within these two categories, information may be aggregated; it is not necessary to disclose information on a plan-by-plan basis.
If any plan included in the table is a so-called "evergreen plan," containing a formula that automatically increases the number of shares available for issuance by a percentage of the number of shares outstanding, the company also must describe this formula in a footnote to the table.  Instruction 8 to Item 201(d).

The remainder of the balance sheet is taken up by a hodge-podge of items that are not current, meaning that they are either assets that cannot be easily turned into cash or liabilities that will not come due for more than a year.
Retained earnings is another accounting convention that basically takes the money that a company has earned, less any earnings that are paid out to shareholders in the form of dividends and stock buybacks, and records this on the company's books.
Retained earnings simply measures the amount of capital a company has generated and is best used to determine what sorts of returns on capital a company has produced.

 Agency Financial Management 10/04   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
While in many cases minority shareholders may express a desire to buy out the shares of a retiring principal, our experience is that, in the final analysis, most of these shareholders participate in the sale.
The acquirer believed that the minority shareholder had added significant value to the transaction by having taken over most of the agency management during the course of several years, and the minority shareholder was very confident that the new partner would add great value to the financial success of the agency.
In situations where the exiting shareholder has a minority interest, an alternative solution to having the agency acquire the minority stake would involve having a third party acquire the selling shareholder’s equity position.

A company creates value for the shareholders when the shareholder return exceeds the required return to equity.

 Ratio - Return on Equity (ROE)
Sometimes ROE is referred to as Stockholder's return on investment, it tells the rate that shareholders are earning on their shares.
But ROE is often misunderstood, for example if the return on equity is 10% then ten cents of assets are created for each dollar that was originally invested.
Companies that generate high returns relative to their shareholder's equity are companies that pay their shareholders off handsomely, creating substantial assets for each dollar invested.
