Investors look at a company’s long term debt to gauge how much leverage it has. Like shareholders, the holders of long term debt are suppliers of funds but they rank higher than shareholders in getting their money back if a company fails. In a liquidation scenario, therefore, Shareholders in highly indebted companies are unlikely to see anything from the sale of company assets.
