Sysco Financial Strength Calculation

GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company's financial situation is. It is based on these factors

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest Coverage (current year). The higher, the better.

Note: If both Interest Expense and Interest Income are empty, while Net Interest Income is negative, then use Net Interest Income as Interest Expense.

Interest Coverage is a ratio that determines how easily a company can pay interest expenses on outstanding debt. It is calculated by dividing a company's Operating Income (EBIT) by its Interest Expense:

Sysco's Interest Expense for the months ended in Mar. 2024 was $-158 Mil. Its Operating Income for the months ended in Mar. 2024 was $722 Mil. And its Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation for the quarter that ended in Mar. 2024 was $12,904 Mil.

Sysco's Interest Coverage for the quarter that ended in Mar. 2024 is

Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Mar. 2024 )/Interest Expense (Q: Mar. 2024 )
=-1*722.046/-157.853
=4.57

The higher the ratio, the stronger the company's financial strength is.

2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better.

Sysco's Debt to Revenue Ratio for the quarter that ended in Mar. 2024 is

Debt to Revenue Ratio=Total Debt (Q: Mar. 2024 ) / Revenue
=(Short-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation) / Revenue
=(216.209 + 12904.212) / 77518
=0.17
