Undervalued with adequate balance sheet

With a debt-to-equity ratio of 5.2%, BDG’s debt level is acceptable.

BDG’s has produced operating cash levels of 2.37x total debt over the past year, which implies that BDG’s management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings.
