Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Jun. 2021 )/Interest Expense (Q: Jun. 2021 )
=-1*1355/-413
=3.28

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

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

Debt to Revenue Ratio=Total Debt (Q: Jun. 2021 ) / Revenue
=(Short-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation) / Revenue
