the difference is clear … but the CFAI book is confusing the heck out of me.
Alt Investment & Fixed Income book, Credit Analysis reading 48, problem 27 on Page 189.
It is asking for the debt payback which is Total Debt/Discretionary CF
This is what is given …
Current Liabilities: account payable $37,917; short & current long term debt $13,073; other current liabilities $8,579
Long Term Debt: $23,285
The book solution uses Total Liabilities as Total Debt
instead of using Total Debt = Short & Current long term debt + Long Term Debt
Is this a mistake?
