The leverage position of the firm as shown by the above ratios seems not too bad, in the sense that the equity position of the firm as compared to the total assets and liabilities are showing continuous improvement over the last two years. i.e. the Owner's equity to Total liabilities and Total assets have shown improvement but marginally. There has been improvement in the long term liabilities position as compared to fixed assets i.e. the firm's degree of leverage has been declining marginally from 2008 to 2010.

Though the leverage position is not a burden for the company at this point of time, the interest paying capability of the firm has been deteriorating over the years. This is not good for the firm and the firm should take necessary actions for improving the same.
