## Z Score breakdown for General

Z-Score is a simple linear, multi-factor model that measures the financial health and economic stability of a company. The score is used to predict probability of a firm going into bankruptcy within next 24 months or two fiscal years from the day stated on the accounting statements used to calculate it.

## 5 Factors

=
0
 First Factor = 1.2 * ( Working Capital / Total Assets )
 Second Factor = 1.4 * ( Retained Earnings / Total Assets )
 Thrid Factor = 3.3 * ( EBITAD / Total Assets )
 Fouth Factor = 0.6 * ( Market Value of Equity / Total Liabilities )
 Fifth Factor = 0.99 * ( Revenue / Total Assets )
To calculate Z-Score one would need to know current working capital of the company, its total assets and liabilities, amount of latest retained earnings as well as earnings before interest and tax. Z-Score can be used to compare the odds of bankruptcy of companies in similar line of business or firms operating in the same industry. Companies with Z-Scores above 3.1 are generally considered to be stable and healthy with low probability of bankruptcy. Scores that fall between 1.8 and 3.1 lie in a so-called 'grey area' with scores of less than 1 indicating the high probability of distress. Z Score is used widely by financial auditors, accountants, money managers, loan processers, wealth advisers, as well as day traders. In the last 25 years many financial models that utilize z score has been proved to be successful as a predictor of corporate bankruptcy.
