The CZECH Stability Award ratings are announced by Bisnode, in cooperation with the CZECH TOP 100 Association. The evaluation results of individual companies in the category of the “Most Stable Company of the Year” are announced annually within the CZECH TOP 100 and are published in business media.
The AAA award, the history of which dates back to 1908, represents a strong independent rating of firms and companies. The award can be granted only to those companies that meet strict economic criteria and the certification conditions. The certification is based on international evaluation using the original and fully-proven methodology.
Only 0.9% of the entities operating in the Czech Republic can achieve a Grade A to AAA certificate, while the prestigious AAA rating can be achieved by only0.09% of the best companies. Obtaining this certificate represents a guarantee of reliability and solvency, which, for potential clients, represents fair and honest business relations.
The rating assessments must take into account factors both within the company and also the external factors. It is not only the economic conditions that are assessed – i.e. reviews based on accounting indicators (profit, capital structure, liquidity, fund development, etc.), but also, for example, management, the quality of relations with business partners, risk management and corporate strategy.
