  • Fundamental Analysis Of Pengrowth Energy's Debt And Risk 0 comments
    Jan 28, 2013 5:33 AM | about stocks: PGH

    Gaining knowledge about a company's debt and liabilities is a key component in understanding the risk of a company. An understanding of these factors will aid in the decision to invest, not to invest, or to stay invested in a company. There are many metrics involved in gaining knowledge about the debt of a company, but for this article, I will look at Pengrowth Energy Corporation's (NYSE:PGH) total debt, total liabilities, debt ratios and WACC.

    All material is sourced from Google Finance, Morningstar and the company webpage.

    1. Total Debt = Long-Term Debt + Short-Term Debt

    Total debt is the sum of long-term debt, which is debt that is due in one year or more, and short-term debt, which is any debt that is due within one year.

    • 2008 - $1.525 billion + $0 million = $1.525 billion
    • 2009 - $982 million + $169 million = $1.151 billion
    • 2010 - $1.024 billion + $22 million = $1.046 billion
    • 2011 - $1.008 billion + $0 million = $1.008 billion
    • 2012 TTM - $1.662 billion + $86 million = $1.748 billion

    Pengrowth's total debt has increased since 2008. In 2008, the company reported a total debt of $1.525 billion. In 2012 TTM, the company's total debt increased to $1.748 billion. Over the past 5 years, Pengrowth's total debt has increased by 14.62%.
