Repayment of debt financing is not linked to organizational performance, unlike equity financing.

The cost of debt financing is usually a recurring cost and usually fixed. Debt obligations must be repaid, regardless of whether the company is profitable or not. Based on management's discretion and if a company is profitable, shareholders may receive dividends after creditors have been paid. However, a company is not required to pay dividends.
