D&B® Supplier Evaluation Risk Rating
The D&B® Supplier Evaluation Risk Rating (a.k.a. SER Rating) predicts the likelihood that a company will obtain legal relief from creditors or cease operations without paying creditors in full over next 12 months. The SER rating is derived from the D&B Financial Stress Score® that is calculated using a statistically valid model derived from Dun & Bradstreet’s extensive data files. The Financial Stress Score percentile is the basis for the SER Rating. Once the Financial Stress Score percentile has been calculated for a business, a secondary set of rules are applied to determine the SER Rating. The SER Rating provides a normalized probability of supplier failure on a global basis; its statistical model more accurately reflects the risk of global supplier failure.
