Financial Stress Score – Identify Risk and Opportunities
Our Canadian D&B Financial Stress Score, also known in some markets as the D&B Failure Score predicts the likelihood that a business will seek legal relief from its creditors, cease business operations without paying all its creditors in full, voluntarily withdraw from business operations and leave unpaid obligations, go into receivership or reorganization, or make an arrangement for the benefit of creditors over the next 12 month period, based on the information in D&B’s files.
The Financial Stress Score makes risks visible, allowing our customers to reduce their bad debt and identify profitable opportunities.
Transforming Information into Insight
The Financial Stress Scoring System uses statistical probabilities to calculate the Financial Stress Score for public and private companies in D&B’s Canadian database. The Score calculation is based on the chance of a business experiencing the above definition of “negative” performance over the next 12 month period. The Financial Stress Scoring models utilize the combined power of D&B’s vast information database of approximately 1,100,000 million active Canadian businesses including payment, public filing, demographic, and financial information when available.
