By Analyst

To avoid understating the short-term liquidity or long-term solvency risk of the firm.

For various firms’ cross-sectional comparisons.

If the purpose appears to be financing rather than acquisition.

Provides a more conservative measure of liabilities.

Balance sheet restatements are more significant than income statement restatements.

Impact of accounting for operating leases as capital leases

Impact of Accounting for Operating Leases as Capital Leases

Though individually impact is relatively small, cumulatively can be significant.

Thus, important for analyst:

assessing the risk and accounting quality of a firm’s financial statements.

determining capital structure weights and debt costs for the weighted average cost of capital calculations in entity valuation.
