ICAP Score expresses an estimation of a company’s credit quality with respect to the probability of default and/or bankruptcy within a one – year time horizon. This estimation is based on an analysis of commercial, financial and trading data derived from public sources and interviews with the rated companies.

On the contrary, as the classification of the company reaches low-grade scales (D2 → E2) the possibility of inconsistency or even bankruptcy becomes bigger.
