This pertains to off balance sheet obligations When valuing a company with operating lease obligations, the present value of footnoted amounts due are included with debt. Many retailers count lease expense as a cost of revenue and some count it in operating expense. Netflix has nearly $3.7 billion in off balance sheet obligations due in 1 to 5 years for their leasing of streaming content liabilities. SC is COGS. These are not on the balance sheet. They are non-contingent binding contracts. Are these equivalent to off balance sheet debt obligations when valuing the company?

    Yes you can consider them as off balance sheet debt obligations. But make sure you take the Present value of lease commitments and not sum up the lease commitments
