ratio covenant

A form of covenant in a loan agreement that includes conditions relating to such ratios as the gearing ratio and interest cover Breaching such a covenant could indicate significant deterioration in the company's business or a major change in its nature; this will usually empower the lender to request repayment of any of the loan then outstanding, and the loan then becomes null and void.
