Question: What is the new D&B® Delinquency Predictor Score and how do I impact it?

Answer: The D&B Delinquency Predictor (formerly the Commercial Credit Score) predicts the likelihood that a company will pay in a severely delinquent manner (91+ days past term) over the next 12 months, seek legal relief from creditors, or cease operations without paying all creditors in full over the next 12 months based on the information in D&B’s database.  The Delinquency Predictor Classes range from 1 through 5, where 1 represents businesses that have the lowest probability of severe delinquency, and 5 represents businesses with the highest probability of severe delinquency.
