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:

Lions Gate Entertainment's Interest Expense for the months ended in Jun. 2021 was $-42 Mil. Its Operating Income for the months ended in Jun. 2021 was $24 Mil. And its Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2021 was $2,954 Mil.

Lions Gate Entertainment's Interest Coverage for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2021 is

Interest Coverage=-1*Operating Income (Q: Jun. 2021 )/Interest Expense (Q: Jun. 2021 )
=-1*23.5/-41.7
=0.56

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

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

=(Short-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation) / Revenue
=(389.1 + 2953.7) / 3604.8
=0.93
