    What Does Hecla Mining's Debt Look Like?

    Over the past three months, shares of Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL) moved higher by 27.55%. Before we understand the importance of debt, let us look at how much debt Hecla Mining has. Hecla Mining's Debt According to the Hecla Mining's most recent balance sheet as reported on February 18, 2021, total debt is at $537.16 million, with $516.52 million in long-term debt and $20.65 million in current debt. Adjusting for $129.83 million in cash-equivalents, the company has a net debt of $407.33 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 Hecla Mining's $2.67 billion in total assets, the debt-ratio is at 0.2. 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 Besides equity, debt is an important factor in the capital structure of a company, and contributes to its growth. Due to its lower financing cost compared to equity, it becomes an attractive option for executives trying to raise capital. However, due to interest-payment obligations, cash-flow of a company can be impacted. Having financial leverage also allows companies to use additional capital for business operations, allowing equity owners to retain excess profit, generated by the debt capital.
