Debt to Total Capitalization Ratio

debt-to-total capitalization ratio – n : finance term defined as the ratio of debt to total capitalization (debt plus shareholders’ equity) on a company’s balance sheet. Similar to the debt-to-equity ratio, the debt-to-total capitalization ratio is a commonly-used measure of the strength of a business’s capital structure or balance sheet. It is calculated by dividing the sum of the debt on a company’s balance sheet (bank loans, notes, etc.) by the sum of the debt and equity on a company’s balance sheet. D/(D+E) = debt-to-total capitalization ratio.
