Leverage ratio of Russian outdoor clothes manufacturers
Information agency Credinform presents the ranking of Russian outdoor clothes manufacturers on leverage ratio. The largest by revenue companies in this industry for the last available in the Statistical register period (2014) were taken for the investigation. Further the Top-10 enterprises were ranked in the ascending order of leverage ratio value (Table 1).
Leverage ratio relates to the group of financial stability ratios. The group indicators are primarily of interest from the perspectives of long-term credits and investments possible provision, due to the fact that they characterize the company’s ability to meet its long-term liabilities. Thus leverage ratio is calculated as a ratio of total borrowed assets to net worth amount and shows how many units of borrowed assets were employed by the company on every unit of own funding sources.
Recommended value for the indicator under consideration is less than 1. At the same time debt/equity ratio can’t be negative therefore the ratio value from 0 to 1 is one of the indicators of company’s high ability to meet its liabilities.
