Hi everyone;

I've been going through a few PE case studies where the interviewer would ask "what's the company's capital structure". I'm not from a credit background, so I was wondering what summary statistics/conclusions are we supposed to offer in order to be conclusive in answering this question please? So far, I've been giving them the leverage ratio, coverage ratio, and its various debt tranches. Is there anything else I should add?

Thanks
