 Thrid Factor = 3.3 * ( EBITAD / Total Assets )
 Fouth Factor = 0.6 * ( Market Value of Equity / Total Liabilities )
 Fifth Factor = 0.99 * ( Revenue / Total Assets )

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.
