Solvency Ratio

Solvency Ratio

A measure of a company's ability to service debts, expressed as a percentage. It is calculating by adding the company's post-tax net profit and depreciation, and dividing the sum by the quantity of long-term and short-term liabilities; the resulting amount is expressed as a percentage. A high solvency ratio indicates a healthy company, while a low ratio indicates the opposite. A low solvency ratio further indicates likelihood of default. Different industries have different standards as to what qualifies as an acceptable solvency ratio, but, in general, a ratio of 20% or higher is considered healthy. Potential lenders may take the solvency ratio into account when considering making further loans.
