  •   Estimating Probability of Default                                                                      
    - Ragesh M

Estimation of Probability of Default (PD) of borrowers is important for all key credit decisions viz. sanction, pricing and provisioning. In this article, the author presents statistical models based on logit and probit regression to predict default using 10 ratios (Revenue Growth, EBITDA Margin, Net Margin, Return on Equity, Debt Equity Ratio, Inventory Turnover, Debtors Turnover, Payables, Cash Conversion Cycle and Sales to Net Fixed Assets) popularly used for credit appraisal. The results of both models indicate that EBITDA Margin, Net Margin, Debt to Equity Ratio and Return on Equity have a larger say in determining whether an obligor defaults or not than other ratios studied. On applying the models, if the user gets 1 or close to 1, the borrower has high probability of default and when it is zero or close to zero the borrower has low probability of default. The models need to be recalibrated for using in pricing and provisioning decisions.
