Posted on Updated on

The analysis of Altman Z-score for 290 companies from BSE 500 index in Heckyl Risk Analytics System (RAS) revealed that Automobiles, Utilities and Industrials sectors have led the volume of distressed companies in the financial year 2020.

The Altman Z-score is the output of a credit-strength test that gauges the company’s likelihood of bankruptcy. This score measures the performance of the company on profitability, leverage, liquidity, solvency, and activity to predict whether the organization has a high probability of becoming bankrupt.

Based on the value of Altman Z-score, the company cab be classified into three zones. A Z-score above 2.99 suggests that a company is in the safe zone. A Z-score between 1.8 and 2.99 is in the grey zone which suggests there is a good chance of the company going bankrupt. Meanwhile, a Z-score below 1.80 is in the distress zone which indicates a high probability of distress.

Here, we present some of the highlights of Altman Z-score analysis for 290 companies from BSE 500 index which have declared the annual results for the financial year 2020:

#1. Manappuram Finance, Shoppers Stop and Bombay Dyeing fall into Distressed category
