I am trying to calculate total debt for companies that have published their annual results but not yet published the annual report.
Companies typically report the results in the first two months after the year ends, but have 6 months to publish the annual report which contains the balance sheet statement. The half yearly published assets and liabilities statement also has this issue.
The annual result publishes the short term and long term borrowings, but one component, “Current Maturities of Long Term Debt” is bundled in the “Current Liabilities” heading.
The question is, what is the best method to calculate this component (current maturities of LT debt) using the annual results (assets and liabilities statement).
