Abstract:
This paper helps to find out the relation between capital structure and profitability of listed Companies of Pakistan on Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) during six year periods i.e. 2004 to 2014.

So this research suggests that companies should observe the optimal level of debt in their capital structure.
