Glossary Term: DEBT-TO-TOTAL-CAPITAL RATIO

Definition(s) for DEBT-TO-TOTAL-CAPITAL RATIO:


1. ) This ratio indicates how much financial leverage a company has. It is calculated by dividing total debt by total invested capital. Total invested capital is a tally of all the outside investments a company's management has used to finance its business — everything from equity (the amount of stock sold) to long-term debt. The major difference between the debt-to-equity ratio and this ratio is that debt-to-capital includes long-term debt as part of the denominator. The higher the ratio, the greater the chance a company will not be able to pay its debts in the future.
