Moderna Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation Calculation

Long-Term Debt is the debt due more than 12 months in the future. The debt can be owed to banks or bondholders. Some companies issue bonds to investors and pay interest on the bonds.

Long-Term Capital Lease Obligation represents the total liability for long-term leases lasting over one year. It's amount equal to the present value (the principal) at the beginning of the lease term less lease payments during the lease term.

The interest paid on companies' debt is reflected in the income statement as interest expense. If a company has too much debt and it cannot serve the interest payment on the debt or repay the matured debt, the company risks bankruptcy. Peter Lynch famously said: A company that does not have debt cannot go bankrupt.

A company's long term debt may have different dates of maturity and interest rates, depending on the terms.

Usually a company issues long term debt to pay for its capital expenditures. Borrowing allows the company to do things that otherwise cannot be done with only the capital it has. But debt can be risky.

Buffett says that durable competitive advantages carry little to no long-term debt because the company is so profitable that even expansions or acquisitions are self financed.

We are interested in long term debt load for the last ten years. If the ten years of operation show little to no long term debt, then the company has some kind of strong competitive advantage.

Warren Buffett's historic purchases indicate that on any given year, the company should have sufficient yearly net earnings to pay all long term within 3 or 4 year earnings period. (e.g. Coke + Moody's = 1yr)

Companies with enough earning power to pay long term debt in less than 3 or 4 years is a good candidate in our search for long term competitive advantage.

BUT, these companies are targets for leveraged buy outs, which saddles the business with long term debt.

If all else indicates the company has a moat, but it has ton of debt, a leveraged buyout may have created the debt. In these cases the company's bonds offer the better bet, in that the company’s earnings power is focused on paying off the debt and not growth.

Important: little or no long term debt often means a Good Long Term Bet
