Sustainable Growth Rate

The Sustainable Growth Rate is similar to the Internal Growth Rate, however the Sustainable Growth Rate tells us how fast a company can grow if it maintains a particular debt ratio and doesn't sell any shares.

Often, firms believe there is an "optimal" debt ratio and this calculation is based on this premise; in that if assets increase, so can debt by a certain proportion (keeping the debt ratio unchanged).

It is, in effect, the maximum speed a company can grow by maintaining a particular debt ratio and not selling new equity.
