ASKMORE rating guide General vision

A credit rating is an opinion of the general creditworthiness of an obligor (issuer rating), or the creditworthiness of an obligor in respect of a specific debt security, or other financial obligation (issue rating), based on relevant risk factors. The Multi Objective Rating Evaluation (MORE) model is essentially used to assess the level of distress of industrial companies by using data included in financial statements. The basic idea of the model is to analyze a set of financial and economic ratios in a predictive corporate bankruptcy model with the purpose of creating a fundamental credit rating model for each industrial sector. Results of the model are obtained by applying newly developed numerical methodologies, drawing together financial theory, data mining and engineering design methodologies. The heart of MORE is a multi dimensional and multi objective algorithm that produces a classification of each company, by taking into account any attributes (such as sector and country) characterizing a firm. The model gives the opportunity to assign a rating to a company even without considering a complete data analysis and allows to process quality information. It induces a better understanding of a company’s strength and weakness thanks to sophisticated data mining tools and taking into account the analyst knowledge. The MORE rating vision is to look at the fundamental economics of the company. The main idea is to evaluate the rating observing every aspect of the economical and financial behavior of the company: better is the equilibrium between the different aspects, better will be the final rating. This is done studying, evaluating and aggregating the most important sections of the financial and economic behavior of a company such as: profitability, liquidity, solvency, interest coverage and efficiency.

MORE Credit Limit, Probability of default and Confidence Level MORE Credit Limit

MORE Credit limit is the estimation of the amount of maximum credit that is possible to assign on a commercial relationship with the analyzed company with an outlook of one year. modeFinance used the following values associated with the company analyzed while computing the credit limit:

• Size; • Years in Business; • Average number of suppliers; • Liquidity of the company and the comparison with its sector; • The funds dedicated to be paid to suppliers; • The likelihood that a company may pay its debts in the next 12 months (MORE Ratings).

The credit limit in this report is merely a suggested value of commercial credit limit calculated on the basis of annual public data. This value should be reviewed by paying attention to the Confidence Level value and by using other information such as other business information, news... etc; and private information such as the relationship with client, history of payments, guarantees and the knowledge of the sector.

Probability of default e Confidence Level

In addition to the MORE Rating, modeFinance also estimates the probability of default and provides a level of confidence. The probability of default is the degree of certainty (in quantitative terms) that the company will go into default. As the probability of default is strongly affected by the economic climate that the company is operating in, companies in the same MORE class will not necessarily have the same probability of default. The MORE model can produce a MORE rating even if there is missing data by using an associated confidence level:

Confidence =

P Available Information P Total Information

The level of confidence does not indicate financial confidence in the company. It is a reflection of the variations in availability of financial data across Europe due to filing regulations and suggests the degree of financial detail the MORE rating is able to take into account for each company. For companies with fully populated records a confidence level of 100% would be applied: companies where no financial data is provided, 0%. This puts the MORE rating in a context for the user and aids interpretation.
