• Debt-to-Equity ratio compares the Total Liabilities to the Total Equity of the company. It paints a useful picture of the company's liability position and is frequently used. Debt-to-Equity Ratio = Total Liabilities / Shareholder's Equity
• Both the Total Liabilities and Shareholder's Equity are found on the Balance Sheet.
• When this number is less than 1, it indicates that the company's creditors have less money in the company than its equity holders. That, typically, would be an ideal threshold to be below.
• It's common for large, well-established companies to have Debt-to-Equity ratios exceeding 1. For instance, GE carries a Debt-to-Equity ratio of around 4.4 (440%), and IBM around (1.3)130%.
