PLDT 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 88 DIGITAL LIKE NEVER BEFORE FINANCIAL REVIEW Debt Covenants Our consolidated debt instruments contain restrictive covenants, including covenants that require us to comply with specified financial ratios and other financial tests, calculated in conformity with PFRS, at relevant measurement dates, principally at the end of each quarterly period. We have complied with all of our maintenance financial ratios as required under our loan covenants and other debt instruments. Furthermore, certain of DMPI’s debt instruments contain provisions wherein DMPI may be declared in default in case of a change in control in DMPI. As at December 31, 2016 and 2015, we are in compliance with all of our debt covenants. See Note 21 – Interest-bearing Financial Liabilities – Derivative Financial Instruments to the accompanying audited consolidated financial statements for a more detailed discussion of our debt covenants. Financing Requirements We believe that our available cash, including cash flow from operations, will provide sufficient liquidity to fund our projected operating, investment, capital expenditures and debt service requirements for the next 12 months; however, we may finance a portion of these costs from external sources if we consider it prudent to do so.
