This paper analyzes capital structure between the internationalized and domestic electronic industries in Taiwan from 1999 to 2008 as the reference for financing strategies and decision. The evidence shows that the leverage and the payout cash dividend ratio in the internationalized electronic firms are lower than those in domestic electronic firms. Due to the uniqueness and the high profit ability of the internationalized electronic firms in the Taiwan, they have more earnings and inside capital so that the leverage is lower. On the contrary, the internationalization level is irrelevant with the payout cash dividend ratio due to the payout cash dividend depending on the dividend balance policy regulated by government in Taiwan.
