A company with high profitability can raise funds or loans very easily because of goodwill.

5) Reward for risk:

Profit and risk are related to each other. High risk, the more is the profit. Every business should have the ability to bear risk because market conditions can be changed at any time or if a company wants expansions like:(opening other subsidiary offices in other cities or adding more products etc.). So in the business, every type of decision should be taken by assuming risk.
