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. Air Products & Chemicals Inc.’s average age ratio of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2018 to 2019 and from 2019 to 2020.
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. Air Products & Chemicals Inc.’s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment decreased from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly increased from 2019 to 2020.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company’s fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Air Products & Chemicals Inc.’s estimated time elapsed since purchase of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved from 2018 to 2019 but then slightly deteriorated from 2019 to 2020.
Estimated remaining life Air Products & Chemicals Inc.’s estimated remaining life of depreciable property, plant and equipment decreased from 2018 to 2019 but then increased from 2019 to 2020 not reaching 2018 level.
