APPENDIX   MORE  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   analysts’   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  as:  profitability,  liquidity,  solvency,  interest  coverage  and  efficiency.

  Rating  scale     Rating  class  

Rating  Macro  class  

The  company's  capacity  to  meet  its  financial  commitments  is  extremely   strong.  The  company  shows  an  excellent  economic  and  financial  flow  and   fund  equilibrium  

AAA  

Healthy

A  

Capital  structure  and  economic  equilibrium  are  considered  adequate.  The   company's  capacity  to  meet  its  financial  commitments  could  be  affected   by  serious  unfavourable  events  

BBB   Equilibrated   BB  

A  company  rated  'BB'  is  more  vulnerable  than  companies  rated  'BBB'.   Furthermore  the  company  faces  major  ongoing  uncertainties  or  exposure   to  adverse  business,  financial,  or  economic  conditions  

B  

The  company  presents  vulnerable  signals  with  regard  to  its  fundamentals.   Adverse  business,  financial,  or  economic  conditions  will  be  likely  to  impair   the  company's  capacity  or  willingness  to  meet  its  financial  commitments   Vulnerable

A  company  rated  'CCC'  has  a  dangerous  disequilibrium  on  the  capital   structure  and  on  its  economic  and  financial  fundamentals.  Adverse   market  events  and  an  inadequate  management  could  affect  with  high   probability  the  company's  solvency   The  company  shows  signals  of  high  vulnerability.  In  the  event  of  adverse   market  and  economic  conditions,  the  company's  strong  disequilibrium   could  increase  

CC   Risky

mF  Credit  Limit   mF   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  January  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   at   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  andthe  knowledge  of  the  sector.  

  Probability  of  default  and  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   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:       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.
