Intrest coverage ratio is used to determine the company's ability pay the debt obligation, it is calculated by the formuae,
Interest Coverage Ratio = EBIT / Interest expense
Where, EBIT is earning before interest and tax
We have givev, EBITDA, so we assumed that depreciation is Zero.
So, Interest Coverage Ratio = 3,048,000,000 / 660,000,000.
Interest coverage ratio = 4.618
The itnerest coverage ratio of more than 2 (In most cases) is an indication that the company will be bale to meet it's debt obligations.
