This measurement by Dr. Edward Altman is a significant measure in determining the financial strength of the company because it relies on different weighted financial liquidity and profitability metrics to come up with the overall score. This measure indicates the probability of bankruptcy.
The overall Z-Score of PEP was 4.21, the grading scale for 3.00 and over according to Altman indicates that the company will not declare bankruptcy. This measurement is not calculated for the purpose of estimating the company will declare bankruptcy but it helps in comparing other companies that have become insolvent.
