The paper presents a score function elaborated in order to evaluate the bankruptcy risk of the Romanian industrial companies. For this purpose, I have used a 152 industrial companies sample, listed on Rasdaq, divided into 83 non-bankrupt companies and 69 bankrupt. The data comprised a 4 year retrospective period, between 1999 and 2002. The score function, elaborated using the discriminant analysis, has six ratios and has accuracy in predicting the failure of 89.29%, which is considered to be quite high, very closed to the similar models from the specialized literature.
