The company currently holds 36.3 M in liabilities with Debt to Equity (D/E) ratio of 0.27, which may suggest the company is not taking enough advantage from borrowing. QAD Inc has a current ratio of 1.34, which is within standard range for the sector. Debt can assist QAD until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, QAD'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 QAD Inc sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for QAD to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about QAD's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
