Sammanfattning: Today, the capital structure is an established research area in economics. Capital structure refers to the relationship between equity and liabilities, which through history has been explored through many different aspects. Capital structure is influenced by several factors and the results is ambiguous as to which of these factors are related to capital structure and which can explain the capital structure. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the share price and capital structure as well as investigate which control variable is correlating with capital structure. The study is of quantitative form, where data was collected between 2009-2017 from the 15 largest companies, set at market value, from Large Cap and Mid Cap listings from Nasdaq Stockholm. The result of the study shows that the share price and capital structure have a positive relationship for both lists, also share price could explain variations in the capital structure. The control variables result differ significantly depending on the list and variables. Profitability is the variable that explains the capital structure best, especially on the Large Cap list. Company size has no connection with the capital structure, and the explanation rate is reasonably comparable to share price as a single independent variable. Firm age has no connection with the capital structure and only affects the explanation negatively.
