@NathanG - I think that’s a good point. My conviction is that some companies would prefer to keep the solvency ratio analysis off the actual balance sheets so as not to scare off investors.
It’s not a hard calculation, as you point out, but most investors would prefer to just look at bottom line numbers like revenues and profit margins.
I should point, however, that companies do provide as much information as possible in their quarterly reports about their debt obligations.
The executive summary will provide the information about the company’s cash flow and ability to meet its long term debt obligations; based on this summary, investors and analysts alike can determine if they need to dig deeper into the numbers.
