Is IRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) outlook still optimistic based on the newest debt level?
The company currently holds 58.24 M in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.07, which may suggest the firm is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. The asset utilization indicator refers to the revenue earned for every dollar of assets a company currently reports. IRobot has an asset utilization ratio of 251.08 percent. This implies that the company is making $2.51 for each dollar of assets. An increasing asset utilization means that IRobot is more efficient with each dollar of assets it utilizes for everyday operations.
IRobot financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of IRobot, including all of IRobot'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 IRobot assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall IRobot 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.

IRobot liabilities are broken down into two parts on the balance sheet. These are short-term (or current) obligations and long-term debt. IRobot has to fulfill its short-term liabilities in this reporting year and should be no more than 12 months old. Long-term debt, on the other hand, is anything beyond the 12-month payment timeframe. Common short-term liabilities found on IRobot balance sheet include debt obligations and money owed to different IRobot vendors, workers, and loan providers. Below is the chart of IRobot short long-term liabilities accounts currently reported on its balance sheet.

How important is IRobot's Liquidity

IRobot financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance IRobot ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. IRobot 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 IRobot's total debt and its cash.
