Risk Score

2002 65 Credit Limit (£): 310,000,000
- - Contract Limit (£): 2,140,000,000
- -
- -
The ICC score has been designed to predict the likelihood of a company becoming insolvent within the year. The latest score is 65 and this indicates a risk level for the next year three to four times less than the average rate of 2%. We would expect 35.74% of companies to be at and above this score. The credit limit is 310,000,000, which is a reflection of the score and the substantial financial strength of the company.
 
County Court Judgments: There are no unsatisfied CCJs against the company.
