Calamp Corp is Among the Companies in the Communications Equipment Industry With the Highest Debt to EBITDA Ratio (CAMP, BRCD, BBOX, KVHI, COMM)

By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Communications Equipment industry with the highest debt to EBITDA ratios. This ratio indicates how many years of EBITDA would be necessary in order to pay back all the debt (assuming Debt and EBITDA are constant). Typically, this ratio is considered to be alarming when it is greater than 3.0 but this can vary and should be looked at within the context of the industry.

Calamp Corp ranks highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 6.2. Following is Brocade Comm Sys with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 5.9. Black Box Corp ranks third highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 5.2.

Kvh Industries follows with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 5.0, and Commscope Holdin rounds out the top five with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 4.5.
