FIN 300 Fundamentals of Finance Financial Ratios – Supplement w/Extra Debt Ratio Examples Chapters 3 & 4 1 FIN 300 - Fin Ratios
Debt Ratios These 3 debt (or, “leverage”) ratios convey the identical info: Debt Ratio = (Total)Debt/(Total)Assets = D/A Debt-to-Equity Ratio = (Total)Debt/(Total)Equity = D/E Equity Multiplier = (Total) Assets/(Total) Equity = A/E Once you know any 1 of the 3, you can easily solve for either of the other 2 Examples follow…… FIN 300 - Fin Ratios 2
Given D/A (Find A/E & D/E) Example: Debt Ratio = D/A = 0.5 = ½ = 50% Solve for Equity Multiplier & Debt-to-Equity: Do the algebra…. D/A = 0.5 means D=0.5A Remember the “balance sheet identity”: A = D+E (always true) Plug in the above: A = 0.5A + E Then 0.5A = E; therefore, A=2E Now A/E = Equity Multiplier = 2 It follows: D/E = 0.5A/0.5A

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
