If you paid $52 billion for Disney, you would actually end up with a total bill of $63 billion, because the company comes with a lot of debt. The enterprise value reminds all investors, large and small, that debt is a cost to the business.

So lots of debt makes the Enterprise value higher? Isn't it more like Enterprise Cost?
