The debt to total assets ratio is calculated by dividing a corporation's total liabilities by its total assets. Let's assume that a corporation has $100 million in assets, $40 million in liabilities, and $60 million in stockholders' equity. Its debt to total assets ratio will be 0.4 ($40 million of liabilities divided by $100 million of assets), or 0.4 to 1. In this example, the debt to total assets ratio tells you that 40% of the corporation's assets are financed by the creditors or debt (and therefore 60% is financed by the owners). A higher percentage indicates more leverage and more risk.

When you calculate the price of a bond, you are determining the maximum price you would want to pay for the bond, based on how its coupon rate compares to the average rate most investors are currently receiving in the bond market. Due to default risk, investors may require a higher rate of return than the prevailing risk-free rate. In general, the greater the default risk on a given bond issue, the higher the required rate of return.
