What is debt-service coverage ratio and why does the banker care?

A YouTube viewer asked me, ‘…when my banker says that the business is overpriced and the debt-service coverage ratio doesn’t work, what does it mean and should I just try other banks?’

Basically, bankers are concerned that there is enough cash left after expenses to make their loan payments... plus a little extra for unforeseen expenses. Pretty good idea, eh?

So how can an owner ask so much for a business that there isn’t even enough cash to make the loan payments? I’ve seen it happen over and over and over and over and over again.

Watch and see how this happens and why you need to understand how to spot these bad deals before they waste a bunch of your time and your bankers.
