CALCULATION:

Enter total capital

Enter debt capital

Enter net working capital

Enter retained earnings

Enter earnings before interest and taxes

Enter market value of equity (market price of shares)

Enter turnover (sales)

Enter number of decimal places

EXAMPLE:

The company's total assets are valued at \$3,500,000, while their working capital is \$4,200,000. Their liabilities amount to \$5,000,000, while retained earnings are \$800,000. Earnings before interest and taxes reached \$6,500,000. Total sales are \$8,300,000, while the market value of equity is \$7,000,000.

Z = (1.2 x A) + (1.4 x B) + (3.3 x C) + (0.6 x D) + (0.999 x E)

(1.2 x (4,200,000 / 3,500,000)) + (1.4 x (800,000 / 3,500,000)) + (3.3 x (6,500,000 / 3,500,000)) + (0.6 x (7,000,000 / 5,000,000)) + (0.999 x (8,300,000 / 3,500,000))

= (1.2 x 1.2) + (1.4 x 0.229) + (3.3 x 1.857) + (0.6 x 1.4) + (0.999 x 2.371)

Altman Z-Score = 11.097 - safe zone.
