Ratio Description The company
Average age As long as straight-line depreciation is used, this is an accurate estimate of asset age as a percentage of depreciable life. The relative age is a useful measure of whether the company’s fixed asset base is old or new. Newer assets are likely to be more efficient. Applied Materials Inc.’s average age of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2016 to 2017 and from 2017 to 2018.
Estimated total useful life Over longer time periods, this ratio is a useful measure of company’s depreciation policy and can be used for comparisons with competitors. Applied Materials Inc.’s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2016 to 2017 but then declined significantly from 2017 to 2018.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company’s fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Applied Materials Inc.’s estimated time elapsed since purchase of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2016 to 2017 and from 2017 to 2018.
Estimated remaining life Applied Materials Inc.’s estimated remaining life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2016 to 2017 and from 2017 to 2018.
