INTEREST COVERAGE is a ratio which indicates the ability of a company to cover net interest expenses with income before net interest and taxes. It is calculated by dividing income before interest and taxes by interest.

NON-CONTROLLING INTEREST is an equity ownership stake in a corporation where the held position gives the investor no influence on how the company is run. The majority of investor positions are deemed to be a non-controlling interest because their ownership stake is so insignificant relative to the total number of outstanding shares. For smaller companies, any position that holds less than 50% of the outstanding voting shares is deemed to be a non-controlling interest.
