It is entirely conceivable, in a situation such as the present, that a firm we would like to keep existing would hold cash or cash-equivalent assets to meet future payments due. Because they can neither be certain that they can roll over their liability, nor that any non-cash asset will be not-toilet-paper by the time they need to make payment.
Basically, it only makes sense to take the cash away if there are no short- or medium-term liabilities that the cash will be needed to meet, or if you can guarantee that those liabilities will be rolled over (which you can't, because the BuBa has its thumb up its ass).
Or if you think the company in question should be taken out back and shot on general principles. Which is, of course, the case for some companies.
