RMA’s 2011–12 Annual Statement Studies® Available


Philadelphia, PA ( November 01, 2011 )

The 2011-12 edition of The Risk Management Association's Annual Statement Studies is available in print and as eStatement Studies in an easy-to-use Web-based format. The Web-based version allows users to download industry data into an Excel® spreadsheet, search using a query function and analyze data by region. In addition, 12 years of data are available in the Web-based format compared with five years for the print version.

Annual Statement Studies and eStatement Studies are the premier source for private-firm financial data, presenting 762 industries using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. This year's data was compiled from more than 250,000 statements received from 276 financial institutions. Trend data is available for five years. RMA's Credit and Lending Dictionary also is available in Annual Statement Studies.

Annual Statement Studies includes two parts:

Annual Statement Studies: Financial Ratio Benchmarks is the only source of financial ratio benchmarks derived directly from more than 250,000 statements of financial institutions' borrowers and prospects. These financial statements come directly to RMA from its member institutions, which get their data directly from their customers.

Annual Statement Studies: Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures contains expected default frequency estimates, cash flow measures and change-in-financial-position information. It brings together the power of Moody's Analytics Risk Calc Plus™ for private companies and the Statement Studies database to provide distribution statistics on one-year and five-year expected default frequency estimates by industry. These benchmarks add substantial value to the critical analysis of cash flow for private companies.

eStatement Studies includes all of the new Annual Statement Studies data for 2011-12, both the Financial Ratio Benchmarks and Industry Default Probabilities and Cash Flow Measures, and the regional breakouts. Functions on the Web include:

  • 12 years of data, including the current year.
  • Client comparison worksheet.
  • Advanced search.
