# TIE AND ROIC RATIOS The W.C. Pruett Corp. has $600,000 of interest-bearing debt outstanding, and it pays an annual interest rate of 7%. In addition, it has$600,000 of common stock on its balance sheet. It finances with only debt and common equity, so it has no preferred stock. Its annual sales are $2.7 million, its average tax rate is 35%, and its profit margin is 7%. What are its TIE ratio and its return on invested capital (ROIC)? Summary Introduction To determine: Times-interest-earned (TIE) ratio and return on invested capital (ROIC). Times-Interest-earned (TIE) Ratio: It represents the firm’s capacity to pay its interest expenses. It is calculated by dividing the earnings before interest and tax to interest expense. Return on Invested Capital (ROIC): It represents the amount of return earned by all the investors; it can be calculated by dividing the earnings available for investors to total invested capital. Explanation Given, Debt is$600,000.

Earnings before interest and tax are $332,769.23. Interest expenses are$42,000.

Times-interest-earned ratio
