What is a credit rating?

AJPES prepares the credit rating on the basis of information within the company’s yearly financial reports. Here, the Slovenian credit rating base on the model S.BON AJPES. They also assess what the likelihood is that the company would fall under one of the default events within 12 months from submitting the yearly financial report. The default events also include: initiation of processes of bankrupcy, compulsory settlement or compulsory liquidation.

How does the S.BON AJPES credit rating scale look like?

The S.BON AJPES model divides the Slovenian companies in 10 credit rating classes. The class depends on the company’s credit risk. Here, the ratings range from SB1 to SB10. SB1 is the best credit rating and SB10 is the worst.

The credit ratings are divided into the following three groups:

  • SB1, SB2, SB3, SB4, SB5 and SB6: The average foreseen likelihood of default events is lower than the Slovenian average;
  • SB7:  The average foreseen likelihood of default events is equal to the Slovenian average;
  • SB8, SB9, SB10:  The average foreseen likelihood of default events is considerably higher than the Slovenian average due to exponential growth.
