(i) Computation of present Interest Coverage Ratio

Present EBIT = Rs. 15 crores

 Term Loan @ 15% 7.5 Bank loan @ 20% 6.6 Public deposit @ 14% 2.1 Present interest charges 16.2

Present Interest Coverage Ratio = EBIT / Interest Charges

= 15 / 16.20

= 0.93

(ii) Computation of Revised Interest Coverage Ratio

Revised EBIT (120% of Rs. 15 crores) = Rs. 18 crores

Revised Interest Coverage Ratio = Revised EBIT / Proposed Interest Charges

= 18 / 21.20

= 0.85

The interest coverage ratio is adversely affected as can be seen in the decrease of 8% due to increase in sales.
