Abstract: This paper proposes an improved approach to the assessment of firms’ solvency. First, sound companies are classified into clusters according to their financial similarities by using Kohonen’s Self Organizing Maps (SOM). Then, each cluster is replaced by a director vector which summarizes all the companies that the cluster includes. The next step is the estimation of a classification model through Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS). For the test of the model we considered a real setting of Spanish enterprises from the construction sector. In this dataset the proportion of distressed firms is very close to that which is derived from Economic statistics. Our results indicate that our system performs better than two benchmarking models, namely a back-propagation neural network and a simple MARS model.
