The Council will use the following ratios to evaluate a bidders financial status. Bidders must confirm within their response to the relevant question within the Qualification Envelope that as a minimum, 2 out of the following 3 ratios can be met.

Profitability — this is taken as profit after tax but before dividends and minority interests. If a company makes a profit then it is a pass for this ratio;

Gearing — this is calculated as the total external secured borrowing (short term and long term) divided by shareholder funds expressed as a percentage. If the answer is less than or equal to 100 % it is considered a pass for this ratio.
