Abstract:
In this paper we report preliminary empirical results on the issue of the interaction of the investment and financing decisions in the Australian context. The investigation was implemented on a sample ranging from 144 to 221 firms for the period from 1980/85. Strong support for the hypothesis that investments and dividends are competing uses of funds, implying presence of interaction, is found for two (1983/84, 1984/85) of the five years under study. Work is in train to extend the sample period from five to ten years in order to obtain a reasonable persepctive of the distribution of support/non-support for the link between the investment and financing decisions.
