Asset age ratio Description The company
Average age ratio 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. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s average age ratio of depreciable property, plant and equipment deteriorated from 2017 to 2018 and from 2018 to 2019.
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. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2017 to 2018 but then decreased significantly from 2018 to 2019.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company’s fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s estimated time elapsed since purchase of depreciable property, plant and equipment deteriorated from 2017 to 2018 but then improved from 2018 to 2019 not reaching 2017 level.
Estimated remaining life Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s estimated remaining life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2017 to 2018 but then decreased significantly from 2018 to 2019.

2019 Calculations

1 Average age = 100 × Accumulated depreciation and amortization ÷ (Property, plant, and equipment, at cost – Land)
= 100 × 922,400 ÷ (3,812,800230,800) = 25.75%
