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.
