Using Debt Scheduler

Debt Scheduler helps you capture and manage cash flow involved in debt investments, such as debt amortization, payments, interest, and interest rates:

  • In setting the term (time) of the debt, you decide the number of years to repay. You can define debt as acquisition-related, to issue debt as acquisition flows instead of investing flows.

  • In setting the principal, you define the money borrowed, premiums or discounts, and one-time costs incurred at the time of debt issuance.

  • In scheduling payments, you can have recurring monthly payments,payments on dates for amounts, and additional payments.

  • In setting interest rates, you can define rates with macroeconomic variables, calculate interests rate as percentages of spread accounts, calculate interest rate changes with grid pricing to model company performance in a given time period, or add paid-in-kind (PIK) interest to the principal.

  • In setting the debt recapture, you apply performance-based excess cash flow to the debt.

  • In setting inheritance, you can define parameters inherited by other scenarios from Base scenarios.

If using Debt Scheduler to calculate amortization, transfer the resulting data directly into debt accounts:

  • New Senior Notes (v2652)

  • New Senior Subordinated Notes (v2654)

  • Total Long Term Debt (v2660)

You must select one of these debt accounts or a related account to create a debt schedule.

Debt schedules are scenario-specific. When you create debt schedules, ensure you are in the correct scenario. You cannot create debt schedules in Actual scenarios.
