Stockopedia explains LT Debt / Assets, Last Yr...

A high ratio usually indicates a higher degree of business risk because the company must meet principal and interest on its obligations. Potential creditors are reluctant to give financing to a company with a high debt position. However, the magnitude of debt depends on the type of business. For example, a bank may have a high debt ratio but its assets are generally liquid. A utility can afford a higher ratio than a manufacturer because its earnings are more stable.
