I have a few questions related to Enterprise value as well.

I am calculating the Enterprise Value using the Financials and the snapshots here on TMF.

The article I read says that:

Enterprise Value = Market Cap + Long-term Debt - Cash and Investments

Market Cap and Cash are easy as they are right there in one number. However, what do I include as Long-term debt. I see a balance sheet entry for the Long-term debt in the long-term liabilities section and a Current Long-term debt in the current liabilities sections. Do I add both of these? Are there any other debts that are less obvious that need to be added?

Also, other than Marketable Securities, are there any other investments that need to be subtracted.

Thanks in advance for helping a confused Fool
