ICAP Score & COVID Company Index

ICAP Score expresses an estimation of a company’s credit quality with respect to the probability of default and/or bankruptcy within a 12-month horizon. This estimation is based on an analysis of commercial, financial and transactional data derived from official sources of the assessed companies.

COVID Company Index denotes the companies’ adjusted creditworthiness assessment over the next 12 months which is triggered as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the effects of the lockdown measures and suspensions imposed on economic activity for each evaluated company. Ιt combines the existing assessments on companies’ credit quality, Score and the Covid Sector Index, an industry sector impact assessment, depicting the severity of impact and its recovery potential.

The assessment results are presented in a 0-100 score scale, where score 0 represents companies that have the highest probability of default, and 100 represents companies with the lowest probability of default.

COVID Sector Index expresses the current assessment on the effects of the lockdown measures and suspensions, imposed on economic activity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, per activity sector, taking into account the likelihood of recovery, within a 12-month horizon.

Romania is a member of the group of companies, the most important business intelligence group in South-Eastern Europe and the only company in Romania accredited by the European Securities and Markets Authority as a “Credit Rating Agency”.
