Al Amin, associate professor and share market analyst of Dhaka University’s accounting and information department, asked whether a company can get 13 times more debt than its paid-up capital. He told Orthosongbad that banks give loans to companies considering the equity-debt ratio. Banks review whether the company has the assets to give such a large amount.
In response to the question whether there is a risk in investment if the amount of debt is more than the paid capital, he said that many ordinary investors invest with the advice of others. But no one forces them to buy any shares. They often invest without looking at a company’s credit rating, risk etc. Therefore, investment decisions can be correct if the risk is taken into account.
