Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures

Which industries and types of companies are most vulnerable in today’s environment? Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures allows you to see not only which industries are the most susceptible, but also to what degree.

A simple-to-understand number is calculated for each industry and across an array of various-sized companies that represent the industry’s default profile. Also included is an assessment of the cash flow characteristics of each industry. These benchmarks add substantial value to the critical analysis of cash flow for private companies, allowing you to make better credit decisions.

Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures includes:

  • Cash flow measures on a common-size percentage scale.
  • Moody's 1- and 5-year EDF ratings that calculate probability of default estimates on a percentage scale, mapped to an .edf bond rating scale.
  • Change in position, normalized, year over year, for eight financial statement line items.
  • Trend data available for the past five years.
