When reading a balnce sheet to find a company's long-term debt, sometimes there are a lot of items that sound like debt, but may not be.
I'm guessing that "Senior Bank bebt" is LT debt.
How about "Senior convertible debt" ?
And "Mandatory convertible debt" ?
These can be very large numbers in relation to assets and equity - are they the same as long-term debt?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks -
