The economic crisis has left part of the productive sectors in a situation that puts their survival at risk. Yet no information is available on the financial fragility of the Valencian Community’s companies nor on how their situation has evolved in response to economic forecasts or possible interest rate rises. The purpose of this report is to analyze the recent development and current status of Valencian companies’ financial health. The study centres on four dimensions of a company’s financial position: liquidity, indebtedness, profitability and debt service. The analysis is used to estimate the percentage of firms, debt and employment in the Valencian Community that is financially at risk and compare it with the average for Spain. It also shows in which firm size brackets and economic sectors the financial risk is greatest. To do this, it uses a sample of more than 4.9 million observations relating to more than half a million companies over the period 2008-2016.
