This has placed SNC in a position to take on more leverage in the future, especially with its continuously growing interest coverage ratio. At the end of phase 3, SNC has a high interest coverage ratio of 105.88 due to the low level of interest expense, which steadily decreased from phase 1 to phase 3 . The improvement in interest coverage over the three phases shows investors that SNC is a creditable investment and shows SNC that they can take on more debt if needed.
