Net Debt to Tangible Equity

What is the definition of Gearing % ex Intan.?

Also known as Net Gearing, this is a measure of a company's financial leverage calculated by dividing its net liabilities by stockholders' equity.

The formula is : Net Debt - Cash / (Book Value of Equity - Intangibles)

It uses the book value of equity, not market value as it indicates what proportion of equity and debt the company has been using to finance its assets.
