What is the Debt Coverage Ratio?

The debt coverage ratio is the ratio of operating income to debt service.

It is a metric that is used to evaluate how well a company can pay debt.

A debt coverage ratio of ‘1’ means that operating income is just covering debt service.

A debt coverage ratio of more than one means that there is more operating income than debt service costs.

A debt coverage ratio of less than one means that debt service costs exceed operating income.


Debt Coverage Ratio =  Operating Income / Debt Service
