Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is the development and validation of a failure classification model for UK public industrial companies using current techniques: logit analysis and Neural Networks. Our dataset consists of 51 matched-pairs of failed and nonfailed UK public industrial firms over the period 1988-1997. Prediction models are developed for up to three years prior to the failure event.
