External Funding

External Funding

Funding that a company raises from any source other than itself. Two common types of external funding are bond and stock issues. A company seeks out external funds when it wishes to expand its operations or other activities, but lacks the cash flow to do it independently. Providers of external funds almost always expect to receive something in return; for example, bondholders expect interest and principle repayment, while stockholders expect to receive a portion of the ownership of the company.
