  • Financial analysis of selected fresh milk companies in Greece: the case of the cooperative company THESS GALA PIES   Order a copy of this article
    by Sophia Nema, Katerina Lyroudi 
    Abstract: This paper examines the application of the Altman Z-score (1983) model revised for nonpublicly traded firms and the Altman Z-score (2000) model for firms operating in emerging markets, in order to rate the performance of a cooperative dairy firm called THESS GALA PIES, in comparison to the fresh milk market leader, DELTA, another local dairy firm of similar size sales, TRIKKI and the Greek dairy industry. The comparative analysis of the aforementioned entities using the Altman (1983) non- public firms Z-score model, showed that THESS GALA PIES performed better than all the rest. DELTA presented the lowest performance whilst the dairy industry unified data led to Z-scores that were averaging the rest. The comparison of the emerging markets model Z-scores showed that TRIKKI was performing better, with DELTA presenting again the lowest scores and the unified dairy industry data averaging the rest.
