Financing Decision Veer Co. is a U.S.-based MNC that has most of its operations in Japan. Because the Japanese companies with which it competes use more financial leverage, it has decided to adjust its own financial leverage to be in line with theirs.

It believes that the market’s perception of its risk will remain unchanged, because its financial leverage will still be no higher than that of its Japanese competitors. Comment on this strategy.
