Long Term Liabilities: I has negative shareholder equity, which is a more serious situation than short term assets not covering long term liabilities.


Debt to Equity History and Analysis

Debt Level: I has negative shareholder equity, which is a more serious situation than a high debt level.

Reducing Debt: I's has negative shareholder equity, so we do not need to check if its debt has reduced over time.


Balance Sheet

Inventory Level: I has a high level of physical assets or inventory.

Debt Coverage by Assets: I has negative shareholder equity (liabilities exceed assets) therefore debt is not covered by short term assets.


Cash Runway Analysis

For companies that have on average been loss making in the past we assess whether they have at least 1 year of cash runway.

Stable Cash Runway: Whilst unprofitable I has sufficient cash runway for more than 3 years if it maintains its current positive free cash flow level.

Forecast Cash Runway: I is unprofitable but has sufficient cash runway for more than 3 years, due to free cash flow being positive and growing by 81% per year.
