The asset utilization indicator refers to the revenue earned for every dollar of assets a company currently reports. Coca Cola has an asset utilization ratio of 36.68 percent.

Coca Cola financial leverage ratio helps determine the effect of debt on the overall profitability of the company. It measures the total debt position of Coca Cola, including all of Coca Cola's outstanding debt obligations, and compares it with the equity. In simple terms, the high financial leverage means the cost of production, together with running the business day-to-day, is high, whereas, lower financial leverage implies lower fixed cost investment in the business and generally considered by investors to be a good sign. So if creditors own a majority of Coca Cola assets, the company is considered highly leveraged. Understanding the composition and structure of overall Coca Cola debt and outstanding corporate bonds gives a good idea of how risky the capital structure of a business is and if it is worth investing in it.

How important is Coca Cola's Liquidity

Coca Cola financial leverage refers to using borrowed capital as a funding source to finance Coca-Cola ongoing operations. It is usually used to expand the firm's asset base and generate returns on borrowed capital. Coca Cola 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 Coca Cola's total debt and its cash.
