modified their Z-score model for emerging markets corporations, especially Mexican firms.

In our All Variable Z-Score model, the step-wise procedure selected Security Coverage ratio, EBIT/Total Assets ratio, and Debt/Equity ratio as the most discriminatory variables.

In the All Variable Z-Score model (Table I), the improvement (97.

To choose an appropriate Altman

Z-Score model was very important.

Therefore, the final four-variables profile is to show the relative contribution of each variable to the total discriminating power of the Z-Score model and the interaction between them as well.

Considering that markets in transitional developing countries are imperfect, the use of the Z-Score model for monitoring public enterprise performance can help reducing monitoring costs and information costs.

Although the Z-Score model does not capture the qualitative or behavioral aspects of the privatization process, the components of the model must be regarded as the "first-order ratios" for monitoring the Egyptian public enterprise easily- observable and easily-measurable quantitative performance, rather than hard-to-measure qualitative performance.

With this caution, let's proceed to "test" the solvency of Salton using the models in Number Cruncher (a model that predicts the bond rating of the company); two Z-score models by Ed Altman of New York University; and the lambda model by Gary Emery of the University of Oklahoma.
