For each item below, provide an easy to read and understandable presentation of the facts for your company. There should be a brief description of the items (Monro) and computational analysis (ratios).

? Business reasons for, and importance of leasing activities
? Other significant liabilities disclosed for contingencies, warranties or commitments and their importance

Things to consider: Description of debts, Debt Percentage, Operating leases vs Capital leases, Present Value of bonds and leases, etc.
