CreditRiskMonitor Launches New PAYCE® Score to Measure Bankruptcy Risk in Private Companies

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – CreditRiskMonitor® (OTCQX: CRMZ) recently debuted its new PAYCE® score, a highly accurate measure of bankruptcy risk when no financial statements are available for private companies. The PAYCE® score utilizes payment and U.S. Federal tax lien data from CreditRiskMonitor’s extensive database. The data is analyzed with sophisticated deep neural network modeling technology, a type of artificial intelligence, to deliver a 70% accurate score on about 80,000 private companies.

“Analyzing risk in private companies is a big challenge for credit, supply chain, treasury and financial professionals,” said William B. Danner, President of CreditRiskMonitor®. “Our goal is to provide our subscribers with the most accurate and innovative financial risk solutions available today. In addition to our 96% accurate FRISK® score, we now offer the PAYCE® score because we know financial risk assessment in public and private companies must be treated differently.”

The PAYCE® score incorporates payment data obtained through CreditRiskMonitor®’s Trade Contributor Program. This network of trade contributors provides over $130 billion in trade data on their counterparties each month to get insight into their dollar risk exposure. Unlike other payment-based models, a PAYCE® score is only calculated when there is both a sufficient number of trade contributors and trade lines on a company for the analysis.

The PAYCE® score also uses U.S. federal tax lien data. The Internal Revenue Service goes through several steps with a company that has failed to pay its Federal Income Tax before filing a lien. When a federal tax lien is filed, this often raises a red flag about the company’s ability to pay its taxes.

The PAYCE® score complements CreditRiskMonitor®’s new Financial Statement Sourcing service by adding to its growing list of private company solutions.
