    L'objectif de cet article est de valider la pertinence des cash-flows d'exploitation dans le domaine de prévision des difficultés financières. Il s'agit de vérifier si l'information renseignant sur les cash-flows d'exploitation prévoit mieux la cessation de paiement que l'information comptable basée sur les accruals. L'étude empirique ainsi menée sur 278 observations, a permis de se prononcer sur la supériorité des modèles LOGIT basés sur les cash-flows, par rapport à ceux basés sur l'information financière traditionnelle en terme de prévision de la cessation de paiement, et ce par la simple référence à leurs pouvoirs prédictifs. Toutefois, cette supériorité n'a été statistiquement validée par le test de Davidson & Mackinon (1981) que pour la prévision deux et trois ans à l'avance.
