Abstract

Korea shows relatively low government debt/GDP ratio of 38% as of 2011. However, it should be noted that such a low ratio does not include the debt by the 288 public corporations of which aggregated liability amounts to 36% of GDP. The top 7 in the high debtors' list take up 95% of the total, and they are: Land & Housing (LH), Electricity (KEPCO), Gas (KOGAS), Expressway (KEC), Water Resource (K-Water), Oil (KNOC), and Railway (KORAIL).
The ‘most risky' financial statement is found in KEPCO. Though the second in the volume, it shows negative operating profits 4 years in a row. The next ‘very risky' one is KORAIL which is enjoying transient positive profit. The biggest debtor LH taking up 41% of the total liabilities by public corporations, is surprisingly categorized to the ‘risky', not ‘very risky' because it shows interest coverage ratio of 610%, the highest among the top 7 debtors. KOGAS and KNOC are also in the league of the ‘risky' followed by K-Water and Expressway in the ‘potentially risky' group. (The rest omitted)
