How much will Ambarella owe in October?
The company currently holds 9.49 M in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.02, which may suggest the entity is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. Ambarella has a current ratio of 8.73, suggesting that it is liquid enough and is able to pay its financial obligations when due.
Ambarella financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Ambarella, including all of Ambarella's outstanding debt obligations, and compares it with the equity. In simple terms, the high financial leverage means the cost of production, together with running the business day-to-day, is high, whereas, lower financial leverage implies lower fixed cost investment in the business and generally considered by investors to be a good sign. So if creditors own a majority of Ambarella assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Ambarella debt and outstanding corporate bonds gives a good idea of how risky the capital structure of a business is and if it is worth investing in it.

How important is Ambarella's Liquidity

Ambarella financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Ambarella ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Ambarella financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between Ambarella's total debt and its cash.
