Analysis of Sandridge Energy’s Debt (NYSE:SD)

A company’s debt, liabilities and risk are very important factors in understanding the company. Having an understanding of a company’s debt and liabilities is a key component in understanding the risk of a company, thus aiding in the decision to invest, not to invest, or to stay invested in a company. There are many metrics involved in understanding the debt of a company, but for this article, I will look at Sandridge Energy’s (SD) total debt, total liabilities, debt ratios and WACC.

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

Debt is an amount of money borrowed by one party from another, and must be paid back. 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.

  • 2007 – $1.067 billion + $15 million = $1.082 billion
  • 2008 – $2.375 billion + $17 million = $2.392 billion

  • 2010 – $2.909 billion + $7 million = $2.916 billion
  • 2011 – $2.814 billion + $1 million = $2.815 billion
