Many operating businesses finance loans so as to cover things such as supplies, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Remember that in some cases this can imply that earnings margins are too thin. Numerous companies fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to debts, there may additionally be future commitments to consider.
