We enter into 2021 with a strong momentum and plan to continue our efforts across our entire portfolio to adhere our core values of innovation, professionalism, agility and transparency which allow us to continue our growth and preserve our leading position.” “Matrix managed to quickly overcome the challenges and adjust to the “New Normal” introduced by the COVID-19 global pandemic and managed to finish 2020 as a record-breaking year across all financial indices. Among the adjustments were the transition to a hybrid work model and significantly increase the company’s scope of operations in all high-demand technology sectors.

Matrix is positioned as the preferred technology partner in the Israeli market for 15 years in a row.

Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ: SPNS) (TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, and a member of the Formula Group (NASDAQ: FORTY) (TASE: FORT), today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.
Shares of Formula Systems (1985) (NASDAQ: FORTY) moved lower by 16.87% in the past three months. Before having a look at the importance of debt, let us look at how much debt Formula Systems (1985) has.Formula Systems (1985)'s Debt According to the Formula Systems (1985)'s most recent balance sheet as reported on May 16, 2017, total debt is at $259.00 million, with $170.97 million in long-term debt and $88.03 million in current debt. Adjusting for $238.16 million in cash-equivalents, the company has a net debt of $20.84 million.Let's define some of the terms we used in the paragraph above. Current debt is the portion of a company's debt which is due within 1 year, while long-term debt is the portion due in more than 1 year. Cash equivalents include cash and any liquid securities with maturity periods of 90 days or less. Total debt equals current debt plus long-term debt minus cash equivalents.To understand the degree of financial leverage a company has, investors look at the debt ratio. Considering Formula Systems (1985)'s $1.36 billion in total assets, the debt-ratio is at 0.19. As a rule of thumb, a debt-ratio more than one indicates that a considerable portion of debt is funded by assets. A higher debt-ratio can also imply that the company might be putting itself at risk for default, if interest rates were to increase. However, debt-ratios vary widely across different industries. A debt ratio of 40% might be higher for one industry and average for another.Importance Of Debt Debt is an important factor in the capital structure of a company, and can help it attain growth. Debt usually has a relatively lower financing cost than equity, which makes it an attractive option for executives.However, due to interest-payment obligations, cash-flow of a company can be impacted. Equity owners can keep excess profit, generated from the debt capital, when companies use the debt capital for its business operations.Looking for stocks with low debt-to-equity ratios?
