The case study “Women-led Family-owned Businesses: Capital Structure of Balaji Telefilms Ltd.” deals with the capital structure analysis of a woman-led family-owned company, Balaji Telefilms Ltd. Generally, members of the family-owned businesses are observed to be risk averse in matters of capital financing due to their fear of losing control over the firm. Moreover, if the family business is led by a woman it would have a low risk capital structure with zero or little debt. This case study focuses on the affects of the owner’s decisions on firm’s capital structure and also the influence of woman leadership on the capital financing decisions of the firm.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To analyse and understand similarities and dissimilarities in capital structure policies of women-led organisations in family-owned businesses
  • To analyse the capital structure policy of Balaji Telefilms Ltd., assess the value of the firm and to discuss the influence of the family members’ ownership and woman leadership on the firm’s capital policy.
