Financial analysis presents o wide set of ratios that can be used for assessing and comparing the return and the risk of the enterprises but in order to realize a classification of them it is necessary to reduce the number of ratios. This condition is satisfied through the principal component analysis which allows the transition from a causative space with a great number of variables to an equivalent but significant smaller space. In this context, the purpose of the present paper is to build an aggregate indicator which is necessary for ranking enterprises based on their financial results.
