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. Zoetis Inc.’s average age ratio of depreciable property, plant and equipment improved 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. Zoetis Inc.’s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2017 to 2018 but then slightly decreased from 2018 to 2019.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company’s fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Zoetis 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 exceeding 2017 level.
