Abstract: There are many bankruptcy prediction models being developed over the last four decades. These models, however, are susceptible to a relatively high proportion of Type II errors, which means misclassifying a firm as a potential bankruptcy candidate. The failure to correctly identify potential turnaround firms could incur avoidable losses as a result of firms not being able to attain the funding or loans necessary to enact a recovery. Therefore, the aim of this research study is to examine different predictors for corporate turnaround. A model will then be developed which could help to identify those financially distressed firms that have recovery or turnaround potential in the Singapore context.Based on the financial data of 703 publicly-listed firms on the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX), we investigated the relationship between the likelihood of corporate turnaround in Singapore and six other predictive variables.
