Debt To Equity Ratio

Debit to Equity (DTE) This measures the total amount of debt the company is carrying, relative to the amount of total equity within it. A figure greater than 1 shows the company is mainly structured via debt instruments. If the indicator is below 1, the company is mainly equity-based. Use this measure to assess the appetite of debt funding. If the figure is too high this could indicate a risk, with the company being too highly geared or reliant on debt funding
