Hi,

PFB the breakup of Deb for GMt:

Break-up of Equity:

We're deriving our D/E ratio based on this.
We source our financials from S&P Global Market intelligence who often undertake normalizations to make the financials comparable with other companies. Based on the respective methodology, ratios may differ.

Please let me know if this addresses your concern or if you need anything else from our end.
