# Equity multiplier

## Equity multiplier

Total assets divided by total common stockholders' equity; the total assets per dollar of stockholders' equity.

## Leverage Ratio

In risk analysis, any ratio that measures a company's leverage. One example of a gearing ratio is the long-term debt/capitalization ratio, which is calculated by taking the company's long-term debt and dividing it by its long-term debt added to its preferred and common stock. Another example is a simple debt-to-equity ratio, which is calculated by dividing total debt by total equity. Generally, companies with higher leverage as determined by a leverage ratio are thought to be more risky because they have more liabilities and less equity. A leverage ratio is also called a gearing ratio or an equity multiplier.

The basis for the analysis has been the decomposition of the rates of return, in which as the starting point there has been adopted the equation of Du Pont model, in which the return on equity (ROE) is recognised as the product of the return on assets (ROA) and equity multiplier (MK) or, more broadly, in the form of the product of the return on sales (ROS), the total asset turnover (ROT) and the equity multiplier (MK):
