Asset Coverage

The extent to which a company can maintain operations at its level of debt. One of the most common ways to measure asset coverage is the asset coverage ratio, which divides the value of tangible assets less current liabilities by the company's total debt outstanding. These liabilities may include preferred dividends and rent. See also: Cash flow coverage ratio, Debt service coverage ratio.
