Investor Insight

The Williams Companies recently faced the prospect of a credit-rating downgrade by Moody's Investors Service Inc.

It said it would sell assets of $1.5 to $3.0 billion, issue common stock of $1 to $1.5 billion, and cut annual costs by $100 million. It also said it would continue to evaluate the size of its dividend payment on common stock.

    A person or organization's solvency is their ability to pay their debts.

    When a company has too much debt, it means a lot of interest expense. So the sale of plant assets will be able to get some cash to reduce debt. Consequently, the interest expense will be reduced.

    In other words, originally, the compony might need to pay interest expense with 80% of profit. After this sale of plant assets, the company migh be able to pay interest expense with only 50% of profit. We can definately day the solvency of this company improved.
