  1. Credit rating. A ratio used to assess a country’s creditworthiness. It is the ratio of a country’s total debt service payments to its exports.
  2. More generally, the ratio of any borrower's net cash inflows - before debt servicing payments - to its total debt servicing payments including principal/capital repayments as well as interest.
  3. A similar ratio calculated on a profit and loss account/income statement basis, rather than on a cash flow basis.


Also known as the Debt service cover ratio.
