Finance Formulas / July 17, 2018 / Kenley Hopper
For example, suppose Net Operating Income (NOI) is $120,000 per year and total debt service is $100,000 per year. In this case the debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) would simply be $120,000 $100,000, which equals 1.20. It’s also common to see an "x" after the ratio. In this example it could be shown as "1.20x", which indicates that NOI covers debt service 1.2 times.
The personal debtequity ratio is often used in financing, as when an individual or small business is applying for a loan. This form of DE essentially measures the dollar amount of debt an individual has for each dollar of equity they have. DE is very important to a lender when considering a candidate for a loan, as it can greatly contribute to the lender’s confidence (or lack thereof) in the candidate’s financial stability.
