ong-term financing using either debt or equity.
Long-term debt or equity financing. In general, permanent financing is used to purchase or develop long-term fixed assets like factories and machinery. Since the payoff from a long-term asset tends to be over a period of time, financing through long-term options reduce the risk of principal payoff not being made (in the case of debt financing).
