Interview Questions

We are looking at two companies. One has a Debt with 300M with EV of 200M How can this be? What do you think is going on with this company? Turned into a case study asking all sorts of questions about why this might be happening. The idea was to test whether or not you really understood the components of Total Enterprise Value and not just the recitation. Wanted to hear you think conceptually about how and why each component would be valued highly or lowly, not just know the equation and recite.
