|Abstract:||The goal of this study is to optimize a company’s capital structure by modelling and programming the required equations in the components of weighted average cost of capital. This process will be carried out in the programming language Python, and then Monte Carlo simulation will be applied to increase the number of combinations of debt and equity in the capital structure and obtain more accurate results on the Qatar gas transport company. Throughout various scenarios and outcomes, the study seeks to determine the ideal capital structure that reduces both the firm’s weighted average cost of capital and the risk to which the Qatar gas transport company will be exposed. The suggested method offers a practical instrument for managers and investors to make well-informed decisions when they apply financial strategies to optimize the company’s financial performance. Debt and equity are considered the main parts in the capital structure in every company, and if we can solve the problems connected to these two parts, we can optimize performance. The code of the programming language (Python) used in this study depends on logical discussion to compare different results. This research also will pay attention to the whole probabilities of debt and equity ratios in the Qatar Gas Transport Company. This research considers more variables in the analysis to obtain more accurate results about the firm’s financial status. The results in this research show that the cost of capital in the Qatar Gas Transport Company will be reduced to 5% (currently 6%) if the percentage of debt and equity in the capital structure is changed to 79% and 21%, respectively. In comparison with the other 9999 components of capital structure, this ratio (79%, 21%) will be the optimal one. The scatterplot reflects that the more repeated values of weighted average cost of capital were located around the value of 5%. This fact can enable us to conclude that the minimum value of WACC is 5%, even though there are lower values of WACC than 5%, but at a lower frequency than that of values of 5%. The study’s results are anticipated to introduce additional findings to help other authors to understand the mechanism of optimizing the capital structure and reduce the risk in the gas and oil sector.|
