Some Risks

Envestnet's total-debt-to-total-capital ratio of 0.48 at the end of the first quarter of 2021 was higher than the previous quarter’s 0.44. A higher debt, as a percentage of total capital, indicates a higher risk of insolvency.

Further, cash and cash equivalent balance of $372 million at the end of the quarter was well below the long-term debt level of $845 million. This underscores that the company doesn’t have enough cash to meet this debt burden.
