SWOT-XPRESS SCORING EXPLAINED






In most cases, the variance for each metric measures the percentage difference between input firm ratios and the industry average. The Sales per Household Market Opportunity Index and Location Quotient compare local and national market data to determine the variance between the two.

Each variance results in a Score of 1-5 (5 being best) for each year of each selected ratio. The application of the Variances to the Score depends on the specific metric; in most cases higher is better (Standard Scoring); in some, lower (Reverse Scoring) is better; in a few, closest to the industry average (Balanced Scoring) is best.

Approach to Scored SWOT Metrics:

  • Owner Earnings (%)-Standard
  • Sales Rank -Standard
  • Variance from Average Sales-Standard
  • Variance from Small Business Sales-Standard
  • Sales per Household Market Opportunity Index-Standard
  • Location Quotient-Reverse
  • Sales per Employee Index-Standard
  • Efficiency Index-Standard
  • Days Receivable-Reverse
  • Current Ratio-Standard
  • Current Liabilities:Net Worth-Reverse
  • Long Term Liabilities: Net Worth-Reverse
  • Total Liabilities:Net Worth-Reverse
  • Days Payable-Balanced
  • Modified Z‐Score-Standard

Scoring Calculations:

Standard (basically higher is better)

  • +/-10% from average= 3
  • +11% to +20% above average= 4
  • >20% above average= 5
  • +11% to +20% below average= 2
  • >20% below average= 1

Reverse (lower is better)

  • +/-10% from average= 3
  • +11% to +20% above average= 2
  • >20% above average= 1
  • +11% to +20% below average= 4
  • >20% below average= 5

Balanced (middle is good, too high or too low is not)

  • +/-10% from average= 5
  • 11% to 15% above or below average= 4
  • +16% to +25% above or below average= 3
  • 25%-30% above or below average= 2
  • 30% above or below average= 1
