Leverages, Financial Management

Leverages

'Leverages' are of prime importance in the analysis of a companies' risk. They give a good picture of the business, financial and the overall risk of a company's operations. Following three leverages are the most important in this regard:

 

Operating Leverage (OL) = Contribution / EBIT

  • It is a measure of the business risk.

 

Financial Leverage (FL) = EBIT / PBT

  • It is a measure of the financial risk.

 

Combined Leverage = OL * FL = Contribution / PBT

  • It is a measure of the overall risk.
