Lockheed Martin Corp has 11.64 B in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 1.02, which is OK given its current industry classification. The entity has a current ratio of 1.24, demonstrating that it may not be capable to disburse its financial commitments when the payables are due. Debt can assist Lockheed Martin until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Lockheed Martin's 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 Lockheed Martin Corp sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Lockheed to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Lockheed Martin's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
Lockheed Martin financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Lockheed Martin, including all of Lockheed Martin'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 Lockheed Martin assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Lockheed Martin 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.
