Quantum Corporation

Finances seem not to compute these days for California-based tech solutions provider Quantum Corporation, now at heightened risk of bankruptcy in 2018.

t's been a tumultuous ride for Quantum, who went from having more than $30 million in working capital in 2016 to a recurring negative working capital in each quarter from 2017 onward. Since that turn of the calendar to 2017, the company has been unable to generate any positive returns, with steep net losses in each quarter. Their negative tangible net worth in 2018 suggests that it's likely that loanable collateral has been exhausted.

CreditRiskMonitor®'s FRISK® score, meanwhile, has consistently shown Quantum to be a risky bet for your public company portfolio. 96% accurate in predicting U.S. public company bankruptcy risk within a 12-month window, the FRISK® score now shows Quantum's descent to a score of "1," indicating a 10-to-50% chance of bankruptcy before March 2019:

About High Risk Reports

Our High Risk Reports feature companies that are exhibiting a significantly high level of financial distress, as indicated by our proprietary FRISK® score.

The reports highlight the factors that have pushed a company's score lower on the "1" (worst) to "10" (best) FRISK® score, which is 96% accurate in predicting bankruptcy over a 12-month period. The High Risk Reports also includes analysis on financial indicators such as the company’s DBT index, stock performance, financial ratios and how it is performing relative to its industry peers.

The ultimate goal of the High Risk Report series is two-part: provide an early warning for those doing business with an increasingly distressed company and inform of the many signals that should be examined when assessing financial risks.
