The lack of knowledge and implementation of appropriate competitive strategies in such markets and, on the other hand, the failure to review the effects of these strategies on the types of cash flows in diverse capital structures is no also an exception to this rule. The subject of this study is to design and explain the affectivity model of types of cash flows in a diversified capital structure based on the type of strategy. The present study is an applied one in terms of objective, a quantitative one in terms of data type and a descriptive survey one regarding how to conduct.
