Summary/Abstract: Choosing an appropriate proportion between debt and equity is one of the most important decisions in a financial management. A convertible bond may be an attractive financial instrument that helps to achieve the optimal capital structure of a company. In this paper, we analyze 562 issues of the bonds from the American market between 2002-2013. The financial sector companies were excluded from the sample due to a different financial statement structure and different motives of the hybrid debt issuance.
