Will Grab Holdings (NASDAQ:GRAB) be in financial trouble before June?

Grab Holdings currently holds 13.95 B in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.27, which may suggest Grab Holdings is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. This firm has a current ratio of 6.19, suggesting that it is liquid enough and is able to pay its financial obligations when due. Debt can assist Grab Holdings until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Grab Holdings' shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Grab Holdings sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Grab Holdings to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Grab Holdings' use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
Grab Holdings financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Grab Holdings, including all of Grab Holdings'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 Grab Holdings assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Grab Holdings 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.
