About the Dun & Bradstreet Rating

The D&B-rating (e.g. 4A3) is an indication for creditworthiness. The D&B-rating is usually being divided in two: the “Financial strength indicator” and the “Risk indicator”, which determines the risk associated with the company. The D&B-rating is composed of two items:

  1. The ‘Financial strength indicator’ wich measures a company’s financial strength, based on the net acquired capital or the capital deposited.

  2. The ‘Risk Indicator’, always the last position of the D&B-Rating, shows the calculated risk of bankruptcy on a scale from 1 to 4, 1 representing a minimal risk and 4 indicating a high risk of bankruptcy.

The Risk Indicator is being derived from the attributed D&B Bankruptcy Score.
