The firm’s default can be examined as a solvency event or a shortfall liquidity event. This work deals with two main perspectives followed in the relevant literature: the EBIT-based models and the liquidity-based models. Both are consistent with each other when the over-indebtedness coexists with the shortfall of liquidity. In the econometric section of the paper, the risks of shortage of liquidity compared with the estimated debt reimbursement are measured in the manufacturing industries using the Dati Cumulativi of Mediobanca.
