A Look Into Nucor’s Debt
Wed, 24 Mar 2021 13:21:48 +0000
Over the past three months, shares of Nucor (NYSE:NUE) increased by 33.47%. Before having a look at the importance of debt, let us look at how much debt Nucor has. Nucor’s Debt Based on Nucor’s balance sheet as of February 26, 2021, long-term debt is at $5.27 billion and current debt is at $68.79 million, amounting to $5.34 billion in total debt. Adjusted for $2.64 billion in cash-equivalents, the company’s net debt is at $2.70 billion. Let’s define some of the terms we used in the paragraph above. Current debt is the portion of a company’s debt which is due within 1 year, while long-term debt is the portion due in more than 1 year. Cash equivalents include cash and any liquid securities with maturity periods of 90 days or less. Total debt equals current debt plus long-term debt minus cash equivalents. Investors look at the debt-ratio to understand how much financial leverage a company has. Nucor has $20.13 billion in total assets, therefore making the debt-ratio 0.27. Generally speaking, a debt-ratio more than one means that a large portion of debt is funded by assets. As the debt-ratio increases, so the does the risk of defaulting on loans, if interest rates were to increase. Different industries have different thresholds of tolerance for debt-ratios. A debt ratio of 40% might be higher for one industry and average for another. Why Investors Look At Debt? Debt is an important factor in the capital structure of a company, and can help it attain growth. Debt usually has a relatively lower financing cost than equity, which makes it an attractive option for executives. However, interest-payment obligations can have an adverse impact on the cash-flow of the company. Having financial leverage also allows companies to use additional capital for business operations, allowing equity owners to retain excess profit, generated by the debt capital.
