debt/EBITDA ratio


Measurement used to predict a company's ability to pay off the debt it already has. The ratio calculates the amount of time required for the business to pay off all debt, but does not take into considerations like interest, depreciation, taxes or amortization. Having a high debt/EBITDA ratio will often result in a lower credit score for the business.
