    Question tune

    Hello everybody,
    Company is wallowing in debt to the tune of 4.4 billion dollars.

    How can I say to the tune of differently?

    Thank you!

    Kukinecka,

    Perhaps one of these?:

    The company is wallowing in debt(s) totalling 4.4 billion dollars.

    The company is wallowing in 4.4 billion dollars of debt.

    Or did you want another idiom to replace "to the tune of?"
