Current liabilities Total obligations incurred as part of normal operations that are expected to be paid during the following twelve months or within one business cycle, if longer. Caterpillar Inc.’s current liabilities as a percentage of total liabilities and shareholders’ equity increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly decreased from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019 not reaching Q1 2019 level.
Noncurrent liabilities Amount of obligation due after one year or beyond the normal operating cycle, if longer. Caterpillar Inc.’s noncurrent liabilities as a percentage of total liabilities and shareholders’ equity increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly decreased from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
Total liabilities Sum of the carrying amounts as of the balance sheet date of all liabilities that are recognized. Liabilities are probable future sacrifices of economic benefits arising from present obligations of an entity to transfer assets or provide services to other entities in the future. Caterpillar Inc.’s total liabilities as a percentage of total liabilities and shareholders’ equity increased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly decreased from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
Shareholders’ equity attributable to common shareholders Total of all stockholders’ equity (deficit) items, net of receivables from officers, directors, owners, and affiliates of the entity which are attributable to the parent. The amount of the economic entity’s stockholders’ equity attributable to the parent excludes the amount of stockholders’ equity which is allocable to that ownership interest in subsidiary equity which is not attributable to the parent (noncontrolling interest, minority interest). This excludes temporary equity and is sometimes called permanent equity. Caterpillar Inc.’s shareholders’ equity attributable to common shareholders as a percentage of total liabilities and shareholders’ equity decreased from Q1 2019 to Q2 2019 but then slightly increased from Q2 2019 to Q3 2019.
