Dynamic Delinquency Score (DDS)

The Dynamic Delinquency Score, a compilation of financial, credit and demographic factors, is a statistically derived measure that assesses the probability of a firm paying its bills in a severely delinquent manner (90+day past terms) over the next 12 months. Benchmarked by individual industry segment, the DDS tells you how the company measures up to other businesses in D&B's database.


Dynamic Risk Score (DRS)

DRS functions as a fiscal crystal ball, evaluating the probability that a business will experience severe financial distress due to one of the following conditions: ceasing operations, owing money to creditors and insolvency. The DRS evaluates business stability and calculates the probability of default. This statistical analysis uses past behaviour to predict future performance - specifically that a business will experience severe financial distress within the next 12 months. D&B defines Financial Distress as Change of Control (eg Receiver Manager or Administrator appointed) or Forced Business Closure (eg Winding-Up Order, Insolvency or Liquidation).
