Liabilities of public enterprises are basically a part of national debt or liabilities, considering the nature of its final burden on public finance or next generations. As activities of local public enterprises for meeting increasing needs of local residents' social welfare are expected to expand rapidly in the future, their liabilities and the impact on fiscal risk of local governments will increase, and policies for reducing them will get to be more important.
The amount of local public enterprises' liabilities totaled to 67.8 tril. won with the debt ratio of 74.7% as of the 2011 year-end. Since the debt ratio is relatively low compared with overall private companies, some specific approach different from ordinary financial analysis applied to private companies is required for examining their financial stability. To this end, this paper adopted a 3-dimensional model assessing (1) present debt status with debt ratios, (2) short-term risk factors with liquidity ratios, and (3) long-term risk factors with profitability ratios with respect to capability of debt payments, and applied this model to, as representatives of local public enterprises, 7 urban railroad entities and 15 local land development entities on the basis of their 2011 financial statements.
