I’m working on a accounting multi-part question and need an explanation to help me learn.
- Sources of financing. Please calculate the yearly fund values from the following three financing sources and illustrate these financing sources in a bar figure. The sample period is 2010 to 2018.

- Net Debt issue: Long-Term Debt Issuance minus Long-Term Debt ReductionWhich is the most important financing source among these three sources? Regarding external financing (equity issues vs debt issues), which is more important for the firm? If you observe any abnormal values of these financing sources in some year(s), please explain the possible reasons. The number of words should be no greater than 500
