Jolly Gomez of JLG Prime Builders aims to build a 23 sq m house with a concrete base, coir wood from fallen trees and a sturdy GI roof.

Siargao has a special place in my heart because it is where I was able to reconnect recently with the magic of the Philippine islands worthy of a princess of the sea. It has an even deeper meaning because it is where my daughter Jordan decided to move out and make it his home. We had so many plans for Siargao and 2022, but suddenly, in less than 24 hours, Typhoon Odette swept across the island and shattered the lives and dreams of every person on the island.

It is really difficult to put together everything that happened in Siargao. After the storm left, it looked like a giant was crossing the island, trampling houses, picking up whole trees. People were left without homes; their provisions were wet with rain; all the water has become salty due to the intensity of the storm; cars were overturned; while trees and power lines blocked all roads. There was no electricity, communication, law enforcement, food and, for many, even hope.

Despite all the preparations of the islanders, they did not expect the typhoon to have such a huge impact. People were unsure whether or not to stay at home and fight the winds as they were also afraid of a similar storm surge in Leyte. Most of the houses were close to the sea.

A day after the typhoon, it was like everyone was in a daze. All the best efforts of the local government to help the people simply weren’t enough as the island slowly ran out of food, water and fuel. Many politicians came and gave relief but it was still difficult to reach the north of the island which was the most affected.

The mayor of a small town in Siargao mentioned that she fears the worst is yet to come when all aid stops and the island is left without coconuts, boats and tourism jobs.

JLG Prime Builders decided to focus on building small, decent shelters for the people in the northern part of Siargao.

While many foreign and local tourists have left the island, several have decided to stay and help the people who adopted them into the island community. Each has launched its own small relief operations, some working with local government, others around existing communities.

These include Lokal Lab (Kara Rosas, Mark Pintucan and Iris Aroa); Bravo Beach Resort (Alex Gari); Maritime Movement (James and Marja O’Donnell); Arka Hayahay (Saar Geva); Tindog Siargao by Siargao Creative Nomads; Save Siargao (Wang Borja); Puppy Puddle Siargao (Aleksandra Goldyn); Cev Siargao (David del Rosario); Siago (Maite Ortoll-Garcia); and Caracoa/FMM (Luis and Caress Banson).

Community kitchens have been set up by Alexa Paroz and restaurant owners Mikael Gonzalez (Vedya), Guillermo (Alma) with long lines of residents receiving free meals, clean water and medicine. Nadine Luster installed a solar panel that allowed people to charge their phones. Everyone came out to help their neighbors despite the lack of electricity, supplies and basic comforts.

My friend Jolly Gomez (JLG Prime Builders) decided to focus on building decent little shelters for the people in the northern part of Siargao, which was the most damaged area after the typhoon.

His goal was to build a 23 m² house with a concrete base, coir wood from fallen trees and a sturdy GI roof. The total material cost is only $1,000 and it will cover the labor cost. He has the humble goal of building 100 houses out of the 34,000 houses that have been destroyed, but if there are people willing to give, why not try to build 10,000? To help build shelters for Siargao, you can donate through his account BPI Peso (0090 0238 02), BDO Peso (00872 8008 211) or Paypal ([email protected]).

A DOG owner has been heartbroken as his beloved pup had to be put to sleep after a visit to a grooming salon went wrong.

Mother-of-one Lisa O’Neill, 37, is still mourning the death of her eight-month-old cockapoo Harry, who suffered a collapsed gut shortly after being placed in a “cage of drying” at a groomer.

After being bought in October 2020 for £2,350, Harry collapsed after being taken to an award-winning grooming salon in May 2021, where he was washed and then placed in a ‘drying cage’.

It was picked up from the groomers, which Lisa declined to name.

The next day he was taken to Vets Now Hospital, Glasgow, and he was put to sleep on May 8.

Speaking to the Mirror, Lisa said: ‘I did some research and the groomer I took him to had 30 years experience, had won awards so I had absolutely no qualms about the take there.

“When I got him he looked good, he smelled good, he desperately needed a drink but I thought it was quite natural after drying off. So we left and I was pretty happy to trust them.

“In May it was the same scenario – but about an hour after they took Harry I got a phone call saying he had collapsed while he was drying out.

“At this point I still had no idea of ​​a drying cage. It wasn’t until she told the vet what had happened that he came back to tell me he had had a heatstroke and that these dryers are death traps.

“Turns out it had been placed in a heated drying box and the timer was set for 30 minutes.”

A drying cage or drying box is a cabinet with closed sides and glass fronts into which heated air is blown to dry dogs. Groomers will generally use this method of drying because it is effective, but it can be dangerous when used incorrectly.

Police officer Lisa, from Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, is campaigning for dog groomers to be regulated, which animal welfare chiefs agree needs to be done.

The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) said Harry’s death was not clinically attributable to groomers, but backed calls for regulation.

“Locked in a Box”

The dog’s owner continued: ‘Being an excitable pup he didn’t like being locked up anywhere so being locked in a drying box he would have jumped all the time.

“He was taken to Vets Now in Glasgow to try to treat him, but unfortunately the complication resulting from the heat stroke prevented his blood from clotting.

“Because of that, they couldn’t open it – it would just have bled on the table.

“I had to go sit with him while they put him to sleep. He had suffered terribly before falling asleep.

“The specialist said that everything he had been through, the heat stroke and the stress had caused intussusception – where the intestines go in on themselves.

“I can discuss it now without breaking down, but it took a while for it to happen. A dog is a member of the family.”

She has now started a petition calling on the Scottish government to take action to regulate dog groomers, which has garnered nearly 3,000 signatures.

Lisa said: ‘It’s amazing how many dog ​​owners know nothing about drying boxes, they hand over their dog and have no idea if they’re boxed in or not.

“Scottish ministers have the power to regulate the industry, they just haven’t done it yet.

“I contacted the SSPCA at the time and the inspector who went to investigate the groomer hadn’t even heard of dryer boxes.

“The box was in working order, apparently it’s one of the best in the business, it was £2,000, it was not faulty so there was nothing the SSPCA could do.”

What is a drying cage?

A drying cage or drying box is a cabinet with closed sides and glass fronts into which heated air is blown to dry dogs.

Groomers will generally use this method of drying because it is effective, but it can be dangerous when used incorrectly.

Some groomers may place pedestal dryers too close to the cage, which can overheat the air and lead to discomfort, skin irritation and overheating in the animal.

Appliances can also malfunction, which can mean that too much hot air is being pumped into the cage for a long time.

Scottish SPCA Chief Inspector Laura McIntyre said: ‘In May 2021 we investigated the heartbreaking death of a dog when he fell ill at a groomer shortly after being crated of drying.

“The dog was taken to a private vet where his condition unfortunately deteriorated and he was eventually put to sleep.

“We arranged an autopsy, which revealed that the dog did not die of heatstroke. A follow-up check was also carried out by a Scottish SPCA vet.

“Given the clinical view of the veterinary experts was that the cause of death was not heat stroke or any other issue attributable to treatment in the groomers, the inquest was closed.”

Despite the discovery, Laura said the organization supports calls for stricter regulation in the grooming industry.

“Dogs should be under constant supervision while at a groomer. This can be a stressful situation for some dogs and every step should be taken to ensure they are safe and comfortable at all times. “, she added.

“The rapid increase in the number of dog owners in Scotland has led to a boom in businesses such as groomers. While many are reliable, well trained and concerned about the welfare of the dogs they groom, the Scottish SPCA supports a greater industry regulation.

“Owners should do their research, check reviews, and try to use a reputable groomer at all times.”

He had suffered terribly before falling asleep.

Lisa O’Neill

A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “We are committed to ensuring high standards of animal welfare for pets in Scotland.

“It is an offense for people in charge of animals to cause them unnecessary suffering and we recently increased the maximum penalties available to five years imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

“We have introduced a new framework for licensing certain activities involving animals, and we will consult on whether to extend this to additional activities, potentially including dog grooming businesses.

“We plan to bring forward consultations in this area after allowing a period of familiarization with the recent license changes, so that the practical experiences of local authorities in implementing these can be taken into account in any proposal. future.

“We encourage anyone with information about animal abuse to bring it to the attention of Police Scotland, their local authorities or the Scottish SPCA.”

Running an unlicensed dog breeding business cost a couple more than £ 450,000 after neglecting dozens of animals.

Karl and Victoria Shelland ran and owned the PosherBulls dog breeding business, which was described in court as a “puppy farm”.

The couple, who ran the business from their home, were unlicensed and neglected their breeding female dogs by forcing them to undergo multiple pregnancies and deliver more than one litter per year, in violation of the law. animal wellbeing.

Karl and Victoria Shellard, 43 and 40, have earned around £ 372,000 from their cruelty, the two repeatedly ignoring instructions to apply for a license from the local council.

The couple’s “farm” was in Bonvilston, Vale of Glamorgan in Wales, Wales Online reports.

Speaking at a sentencing hearing at Cardiff Crown Court, Judge David Wynn Morgan said: “You ran a puppy farm and did it for money, and you made a lot of Money You could have run an extremely profitable business if you were properly registered, but you are going to pay the price for this madness.

Between 2014 and 2020, the couple bred at least 67 litters, with Caesarean section information showing 43 litters were delivered between 2018 and 2019. The puppies are reportedly priced between £ 1,500 and £ 20,000.

The two accused admitted to having done back-breeding, that is to say that the dogs gave birth to more than one litter in a period of 12 months. A dog named Coco had given birth to six litters in four years while many others were forced to give birth to two litters in less than a year.

Prosecutor Tim Evans told the court that the Shellards, who have three children, are knowingly putting the well-being of the dogs at risk. He said: “This back-to-back breeding would have been a license violation if they had been licensed breeders. This is something even legitimate breeders should never do.

“But, regardless of the lack of a breeder’s license, this is an animal welfare offense as recovery from a Caesarean takes many months and Shellards were artificially inseminating these dogs long before they were allowed to breed. ‘They weren’t healthy enough to have a pregnancy and then C -section again. It was a positive decision to raise the animals that way. “

Investigation by an expert veterinarian concluded that an application for a permit was reportedly rejected and that the couple had attempted to avoid detection through “condominium contracts”, which involve others being paid to house or officially own the dogs.

Their four-bedroom home and two other associated properties were raided in December 2019, which found 60 dogs, a partially completed breeder’s license application form, and a laboratory containing equipment such as a microscope, multipurpose centrifuge, and equipment for storing and collecting semen.

There were also specially equipped kennels, a dog park and a building designed to accommodate dogs with litters.

Mr Evans said the defendants openly advertised PosherBulls through a website and social media, in which they claimed to be “experienced breeders” and “distinguished Bulldog leaders of all stripes.”

He said: “Despite this obvious work to facilitate their dog breeding business, they did not apply for a breeding license until January 2020. It was two weeks after a warrant was executed on the premises. and almost two years after learning that a license was needed. “

When questioned, Karl Shellard admitted that he had been breeding dogs without a license for six years, but said he did not submit the form due to the attempted sale of the family home, which means that he should change his address.

After the couple formally applied for a breeding license, a veterinary inspection was carried out at their home on February 10 last year but a license was not granted due to poorly managed health issues. inadequate housing and space for dogs, lack of understanding of guidelines and poor isolation facilities for unvaccinated dogs.

Another report concluded that the Shellards had run a business that “maximized puppy production without considering the health and welfare of the dogs.”

They then pleaded guilty to raising dogs without a license between 2017 and 2020 and nine counts of failing to provide for a protected animal for which they were responsible. Investigations under the Proceeds of Crime Act found the couple had earned £ 372,531 illegally but had available assets of £ 1,041,714.

Heath Edwards, defending, said Karl Shellard first got involved with bulldogs as a hobby, with his wife later getting involved in the financial and administrative aspects of the business.

Mr Edwards said the company had become “nationally and internationally recognized” for the quality of the dogs they bred, which he described as “in good health and of undoubted pedigree”, but that the couple would “pay a heavy price” not to apply for a License.

Upon sentencing, Judge Wynn Morgan said: “Those with long memories remember the West Wales puppy farm scandals and the sickening tales of dogs being raised by breeding female dogs in appalling conditions The result of these scandals was legislation put in place to monitor and regulate dog breeding.

“This is why you were obliged to register your business so that it could be properly regulated but you chose, despite the fact that you were told, not to do so. The reasons given are totally clear. insufficient because it is the law and whoever wanted to do what you did had to comply with it. “

The couple were fined £ 19,000 each and £ 372,531. They were also ordered to pay court costs of £ 43,775, making a total of £ 453,307. The couple have three months to pay under penalty of 24 months imprisonment by default.

After buying a puppy from a Jacksonville pet store, a St. Augustine couple told News4JAX I-TEAM that they quickly had to pay hefty bills after the dog had to undergo life-saving heart surgery.

The husband and wife agreed to speak with I-TEAM, on condition of anonymity.

“We had no idea she was about to die,” the woman said. “That’s what the specialist here told me. He said that when he operated on her, his heart was so enlarged.

The couple who bought Ella, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, believe the owner of the Puppy Avenue pet store should be responsible for paying the dog’s medical bills, saying he was misled about the seriousness of a heart murmur.

Husband and wife said they received the dog as a Christmas present for their two young children, replacing the family’s former dog, Bella, who was 17 when she died of old age. The husband said the store wanted $ 3,500 for the dog, which a manager offered to cut to $ 2,500.

A d

News4JAX asked the husband if any medical issues were disclosed at the time of the purchase.

“She (the nursery) said she (Ella) had a slight heart murmur, but the dog that we had for 17 years had a slight heart murmur and she lived for 17 years, so we said : ‘Ah, that’s okay.’ said the husband.

Puppies have two health guarantees, according to the store’s website.

“So you are buying a healthy puppy. That’s why the website says healthy puppies she will be fine, ”the woman said.

But after a day or two passed and the kids started bonding with Ella, their mother began to wonder why Ella’s price had been reduced by $ 1,000. She said she did a Google search of the store to read customer reviews.

“Bad review after bad review. Dying puppies. Puppies with parvo, ”said the woman.

So she took Ella to a vet in St. Augustine and learned that Ella’s heart murmur was much more severe than the pet store had revealed. The vet suggested Ella see a heart specialist at an animal emergency room in Jacksonville, where the couple later learned.

A d

“She had a blood vessel that, if it wasn’t repaired, wouldn’t see her first birthday. She needed almost $ 3,600 in emergency surgery, ”the woman said.

Ella underwent surgery and was released from the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. The couple believe the store owner is responsible for the medical costs.

“I think he should have to pay all these bills because now I’m over $ 8,000,” the husband said.

Better Business Bureau president Tom Stephens said seven different complaints had been filed in his office alleging the sale of sick puppies, and they all had similar complaints.

“(That) the store sold an animal that was sick. Several had died within a week or two of receiving the animal or soon after and they all had multiple vet bills to try to keep the animal alive.” , explained Stephens.

Stephens says Florida has a lemon law that says if a breeder or pet store sells a medically ill pet, they must adhere to two options to address issues with buyers.

A d

“Return the money and pay reasonable vet bills or offer a replacement animal,” Stephens explained. “In my opinion, their (store) appears to be breaking the state’s lemon puppy law.”

The owner of Puppy Avenue wouldn’t give us an interview. However, he told us over the phone that he would be willing to find a solution to remedy the problem, but that he would only do so with the husband since it was the husband who was paying for the dog.

EPL (NSE: EPL) seems to be using debt quite wisely https://jolijaunter.com/epl-nse-epl-seems-to-be-using-debt-quite-wisely/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 01:21:27 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/epl-nse-epl-seems-to-be-using-debt-quite-wisely/ Some say volatility, rather than debt, is the best way to think about risk as an investor, but Warren Buffett said “volatility is far from risk.” It’s only natural to consider a company’s balance sheet when looking at its level of risk, as debt is often involved when a business collapses.

Some say volatility, rather than debt, is the best way to think about risk as an investor, but Warren Buffett said “volatility is far from risk.” It’s only natural to consider a company’s balance sheet when looking at its level of risk, as debt is often involved when a business collapses. We can see that EPL limited (NSE: EPL) uses debt in its business. But the real question is whether this debt makes the business risky.

What risk does debt entail?

Debts and other liabilities become risky for a business when it cannot easily meet these obligations, either with free cash flow or by raising capital at an attractive price. An integral part of capitalism is the process of “creative destruction” where bankrupt companies are ruthlessly liquidated by their bankers. However, a more common (but still costly) situation is where a company has to dilute its shareholders at a cheap share price just to get its debt under control. By replacing dilution, however, debt can be a very good tool for companies that need capital to invest in growth at high rates of return. The first step in examining a business’s debt levels is to consider its cash flow and debt together.

See our latest review for EPL

How much debt does EPL carry?

The image below, which you can click for more details, shows that in September 2021, EPL was in debt of 6.20 billion yen, up from 4.17 billion yen in a year. However, it has 2.61 billion yen in cash offsetting this, which leads to net debt of around 3.59 billion yen.

NSEI: EPL History of debt to equity January 4, 2022

How healthy is EPL’s track record?

We can see from the most recent balance sheet that EPL had liabilities of 8.56 billion yen maturing within one year and liabilities of 5.14 billion yen beyond. In return, he had 2.61 billion yen in cash and 6.18 billion yen in receivables due within 12 months. It therefore has liabilities totaling 4.91 billion yen more than its cash and short-term receivables combined.

Considering that listed EPL shares are worth a total of 66.2 billion yen, it seems unlikely that this level of liabilities poses a major threat. Having said that, it is clear that we must continue to monitor his record lest it get worse.

We measure a company’s indebtedness relative to its earning power by looking at its net debt divided by its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) and calculating the ease with which its earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT ) covers its interests. costs (interest coverage). The advantage of this approach is that we take into account both the absolute amount of debt (with net debt versus EBITDA) and the actual interest charges associated with this debt (with its coverage rate). interests).

EPL has a low net debt to EBITDA ratio of just 0.62. And its EBIT easily covers its interest costs, being 15.7 times greater. So we’re pretty relaxed about its ultra-conservative use of debt. But the other side of the story is that EPL has seen its EBIT drop 5.3% in the past year. This type of decline, if it continues, will obviously make debt more difficult to manage. When analyzing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious place to start. But ultimately, the company’s future profitability will decide whether EPL can strengthen its balance sheet over time. So if you are focused on the future you can check this out free report showing analysts’ earnings forecasts.

But our last consideration is also important, because a business cannot pay its debts with paper profits; he needs hard cash. We must therefore clearly examine whether this EBIT leads to the corresponding free cash flow. Over the past three years, EPL has generated free cash flow of 80% of its very robust EBIT, more than we expected. This puts him in a very strong position to pay off the debt.

Our point of view

The good news is that EPL’s demonstrated ability to cover its interest costs with its EBIT delights us like a fluffy puppy does a toddler. But frankly, we think its EBIT growth rate undermines that impression a bit. Looking at the big picture, we think EPL’s use of debt looks very reasonable and we don’t care. While debt comes with risk, when used wisely, it can also generate a better return on equity. Over time, stock prices tend to follow earnings per share, so if you are interested in EPL, you may want to click here to view an interactive chart of its historical earnings per share.

Is Akzo Nobel (AMS: AKZA) a risky investment? https://jolijaunter.com/is-akzo-nobel-ams-akza-a-risky-investment/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 06:18:00 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/is-akzo-nobel-ams-akza-a-risky-investment/ Legendary fund manager Li Lu (whom Charlie Munger supported) once said, “The biggest risk in investing is not price volatility, but the possibility that you will suffer a permanent loss of capital.” When we think about how risky a business is, we always like to look at its use of debt because debt overload can […]]]>

Legendary fund manager Li Lu (whom Charlie Munger supported) once said, “The biggest risk in investing is not price volatility, but the possibility that you will suffer a permanent loss of capital.” When we think about how risky a business is, we always like to look at its use of debt because debt overload can lead to bankruptcy. Like many other companies Akzo Nobel AG (AMS: AKZA) uses debt. But should shareholders be concerned about its use of debt?

What risk does debt entail?

Debt helps a business until the business struggles to repay it, either with new capital or with free cash flow. Ultimately, if the company can’t meet its legal debt repayment obligations, shareholders could walk away with nothing. However, a more common (but still costly) event is when a company has to issue stock at bargain prices, constantly diluting shareholders, just to strengthen its balance sheet. That said, the most common situation is where a business manages its debt reasonably well – and to its own advantage. When we think of a business’s use of debt, we first look at cash flow and debt together.

See our latest review for Akzo Nobel

How much debt does Akzo Nobel have?

The image below, which you can click for more details, shows that in September 2021 Akzo Nobel had a debt of 3.08 billion euros, compared to 2.93 billion euros in a year. However, he also had 1.10 billion euros in cash, so his net debt is 1.98 billion euros.

ENXTAM: AKZA History of debt to equity January 2, 2022

How strong is Akzo Nobel’s balance sheet?

According to the last published balance sheet, Akzo Nobel had liabilities of 4.41 billion euros due in 12 months and liabilities of 3.33 billion euros due beyond 12 months. In compensation for these commitments, he had cash of € 1.10 billion as well as receivables valued at € 2.38 billion within 12 months. Its liabilities therefore amount to € 4.25 billion more than the combination of its cash and short-term receivables.

This deficit is not that big as Akzo Nobel is worth 17.5 billion euros and could therefore probably raise enough capital to consolidate its balance sheet, should the need arise. But we absolutely want to keep our eyes open for indications that its debt is too risky.

In order to measure a company’s debt relative to its profits, we calculate its net debt divided by its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and its profit before interest and taxes (EBIT) divided by its interest. debtors (its interest coverage). In this way, we consider both the absolute amount of debt, as well as the interest rates paid on it.

Akzo Nobel has a low net debt to EBITDA ratio of just 1.4. And its EBIT covers its interest costs a whopping 19.8 times. We could therefore say that he is no more threatened by his debt than an elephant is by a mouse. Another good sign is that Akzo Nobel was able to increase its EBIT by 28% in twelve months, making it easier to repay the debt. When analyzing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious place to start. But ultimately, the company’s future profitability will decide whether Akzo Nobel can strengthen its balance sheet over time. So if you want to see what the professionals think, you might find this free Analyst Profit Forecast report interesting.

Finally, while the IRS may love accounting profits, lenders only accept hard cash. The logical step is therefore to examine the proportion of this EBIT that corresponds to the actual free cash flow. Over the past three years, Akzo Nobel has generated strong free cash flow equivalent to 56% of its EBIT, roughly what we expected. This hard cash allows him to reduce his debt whenever he wants.

Our point of view

The good news is that Akzo Nobel’s demonstrated ability to cover his interest costs with his EBIT delights us like a fluffy puppy does a toddler. And the good news doesn’t end there, because its EBIT growth rate also supports this impression! Looking at the big picture, we think Akzo Nobel’s use of debt looks very reasonable and we don’t care. After all, reasonable leverage can increase returns on equity. There is no doubt that we learn the most about debt from the balance sheet. But at the end of the day, every business can contain risks that exist off the balance sheet. For example, we have identified 1 warning sign for Akzo Nobel that you need to be aware of.

If, after all of this, you’re more interested in a fast-growing company with a strong balance sheet, take a quick look at our list of cash-flow net-growth stocks.

One-stop-shop systems (NASDAQ: OSS) seem to use debt rather sparingly https://jolijaunter.com/one-stop-shop-systems-nasdaq-oss-seem-to-use-debt-rather-sparingly/ Fri, 31 Dec 2021 11:21:28 +0000 https://jolijaunter.com/one-stop-shop-systems-nasdaq-oss-seem-to-use-debt-rather-sparingly/ Berkshire Hathaway’s Charlie Munger-backed external fund manager Li Lu is quick to say this when he says “The biggest risk in investing is not price volatility, but if you will suffer a loss. permanent capital “.

Berkshire Hathaway’s Charlie Munger-backed external fund manager Li Lu is quick to say this when he says “The biggest risk in investing is not price volatility, but if you will suffer a loss. permanent capital “. It is only natural to consider a company’s balance sheet when considering how risky it is, as debt is often involved when a business collapses. We can see that Single Window Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSS) uses debt in its business. But the most important question is: what risk does this debt create?

Why Does Debt Bring Risk?

Debt helps a business until the business struggles to repay it, either with new capital or with free cash flow. Ultimately, if the company cannot meet its legal debt repayment obligations, shareholders could walk away with nothing. However, a more common (but still costly) event is when a company has to issue stock at bargain prices, constantly diluting shareholders, just to strengthen its balance sheet. Of course, the advantage of debt is that it often represents cheap capital, especially when it replaces dilution of a business with the ability to reinvest at high rates of return. When we look at debt levels, we first consider both liquidity and debt levels.

See our latest analysis for One Stop Systems

How Much Debt Do Single Window Systems Carry?

The image below, which you can click for more details, shows One Stop Systems owed $ 4.31 million in debt at the end of September 2021, a reduction from $ 5.48 million. US dollars over one year. But on the other hand, it also has $ 18.5 million in cash, which leads to a net cash position of $ 14.2 million.

NasdaqCM: OSS History of debt to equity December 31, 2021

How healthy is One Stop Systems’ balance sheet?

Zooming in on the latest balance sheet data, we can see that One Stop Systems had a liability of US $ 11.6 million owed within 12 months and no liabilities owed beyond. In compensation for these obligations, he had cash of US $ 18.5 million as well as receivables valued at US $ 5.81 million due within 12 months. So he actually has $ 12.7 million Following liquid assets as total liabilities.

This short-term liquidity is a sign that One Stop Systems could probably repay its debt easily, as its balance sheet is far from tight. Put simply, the fact that One Stop Systems has more cash than debt is arguably a good indication that it can safely manage its debt.

Best of all, One Stop Systems increased its EBIT 166% last year, which is an impressive improvement. If sustained, this growth will make debt even more manageable in the years to come. When analyzing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious place to start. But ultimately, the company’s future profitability will decide whether One Stop Systems can strengthen its balance sheet over time. So if you are focused on the future you can check this out free report showing analysts’ earnings forecasts.

But our last consideration is also important, because a business cannot pay its debts with paper profits; he needs hard cash. One Stop Systems may have net cash on the balance sheet, but it’s always interesting to consider the extent to which the business converts its earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) into free cash flow, as this will influence both its need and its ability to manage debt. Fortunately for all shareholders, One Stop Systems has actually generated more free cash flow than EBIT over the past two years. This kind of solid silver generation warms our hearts like a puppy in a bumblebee costume.

In summary

As much as we sympathize with investors who find debt worrying, you should keep in mind that One Stop Systems has US $ 14.2 million in net cash, plus more liquid assets than liabilities. . The icing on the cake was that he converted 111% of that EBIT into free cash flow, bringing in US $ 4.0 million. We therefore do not believe that One Stop Systems’ use of debt is risky. When analyzing debt levels, the balance sheet is the obvious place to start. However, not all investment risks lie on the balance sheet – far from it. For example, we discovered 4 warning signs for one-stop-shop systems which you should know before investing here.

If, after all of this, you’re more interested in a fast-growing company with a strong balance sheet, take a quick look at our list of cash-flow net-growth stocks.

Jacco in fire evacuation: enduring a year of extremes.

The puppy has been with us for a year now. When it happened last Christmas, I promised I wouldn’t be that crazy female dog and bore you with doggy stories. However, after reflecting on the last difficult year as it comes to an end, I realized that having the puppy has been a learning experience, as well as an added value and worth it. share.

Having a puppy is like being a parent again. The first shock to the system is the loss of sleep, because the baby has to be clean. The moan of the night signals the call, followed by the early morning rehearsal. It doesn’t help that in Mazama the snow in January is several feet high and a path has to be shoveled to the place of the potty or the puppy disappears in the white matter. Until the little guy learns to ask outside to do his business, parents are on high alert to avoid unwanted “accidents”.

Reading puppy training books and attending puppy training classes is imperative for new parents. The smart little guy quickly learns some answers. Others he chooses to ignore. Surprisingly, as a toddler, he begins to develop his recognized vocabulary as we have resorted to spelling certain words like “snack”. You can’t help but laugh when you realize you spell for a dog!

I think the dog must be inherently Buddhist. It is a lesson in “living in the present”. You don’t tell him something that is going to happen in an hour or the next, like naming someone who is coming to visit him. For the puppy, that means NOW, which triggers a flurry of activity while waiting for the door to open. Any reference to time other than the present is not in its wheelhouse.

It is said that “curiosity killed the cat”, but the same could be said of the dog. Everything that is accessible is intriguing. A firm ‘no’ is heard, but sometimes the second half of the saying is worth a try. “Satisfaction brought him back.” When the forbidden inspection of the curious object takes place outside the presence of the human people, it proudly prances to where we are, object in tow to inform us that it has something it is not supposed to. to have. Good boy! Now let it go. Yes indeed!

Everything gets a little more complicated with a puppy. In this year of extremes, leaving your puppy in the vehicle while they shop, ride a horse, eat out, or go to the movies has often not been an option. This week, for example, it would be child abuse to leave the little man in the car when the temperatures are freezing and cold. On these occasions we have had puppy sitters. Every dog ​​owner says the puppy will come out of the chewing frenzy and eventually take a nap while we are away. This day will be paradise.

Traveling with a dog brings another set of circumstances. For a trip to Montana in September, I had to give up my life to have the puppy in the VRBO house. It was perfect, however, and I didn’t have to make a claim on the required insurance. While attending a one day event during the July 100 degrees, I discovered rover.com. Of course, there are licensed dog sitters wherever you need them. Pup-a-dup didn’t like staying with a stranger, but he survived (and so did I).

Evacuation of the summer fires was another story. Our benefactress had her own little Corgi so she greeted us (maybe later with a few regrets). The two dogs were determined to chase each other and play until they fell. However, little Teddy, being a little older and more knowledgeable, didn’t need to have a puppy-proof home. Here is Jacco with a bite of wrapping paper from its storage under the bed. Whoops! Thank you Mary Pat for your patience.

For all the hassle, there is no such thing as a welcome tail swing from a loyal companion.

Jack’s Hut is open from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday through Monday. The Inn at Mazama is open for burgers today (Wednesday, December 29, 5-7 p.m.), dinner Thursday (December 30, 5-8 p.m.) and Sunday brunch (January 2, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.). Woodstone Pizzeria at Wesola Polana is open daily except Tuesday and Wednesday. Thank you for supporting these Mazama companies so that they can continue to serve us.
