The company itself, as a legal entity, is liable for the rest. Also called limited personal liability

This extent of liability is assumed in an unlimited liability company such as a sole-proprietorship or a general partnership

When prepared for external audience (lenders, prospective investors) it details the past, present, and forecasted performance of the firm. And usually also contains pro-forma balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement, to illustrate how the financing being sought will affect the firm's financial position
