How important is FedEx's Liquidity

FedEx financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance FedEx ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. FedEx financial leverage is typically calculated by taking the company's all interest-bearing debt and dividing it by total capital. So the higher the debt-to-capital ratio (i.e., financial leverage), the riskier the company. Please check the breakdown between FedEx's total debt and its cash.
