Creditntell Publishes Future Outlook Analysis Reports on Macy's, Burlington Coat Factory, Office Depot and More

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - Creditntell, a division of industry leading credit consulting firm Information Clearinghouse Inc., has published nine forward-looking ''Future Outlook Analysis" reports in 2011, and has plans to publish almost 20 for the full year.

The Future Outlook Analysis is a comprehensive examination and evaluation of a specific retailer's 12-month liquidity outlook. In addition to a "three scenario" future cash flow & liquidity model, the Future Outlook Analysis provides an unbiased deep-dive perspective into the Company's operational hurdles, competition, asset base, debt requirements, future credit ratings, and payment trends, including sensitivity testing.

Creditntell first began publishing the Future Outlook Analysis report in 2007, and since that time the analytical process has proven to be highly effective in projecting future liquidity for specific retailers. For example, our 2010 Future Outlook Analysis on Borders Group, Inc. accurately projected that the Company would likely face a liquidity shortage within 12 months from the date of publication, which then came to fruition in February 2011 when the Company filed for bankruptcy protection.

Creditntell has published the following reports in 2011:

  • Macy's, Inc.
  • Office Depot, Inc.
  • Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corp.
  • hhgregg, Inc.
  • Dillard's, Inc.
  • Conn's, Inc.
  • Trans World Entertainment Corp.
  • CDW Corporation
  • HD Supply, Inc.

If you would like a copy of any of the above reports please email Additional reports to be published in 2011 include: Sears Holdings, Toys R Us, Rite Aid, Bon-Ton and Barnes & Noble.

Commenting on the Future Outlook Analysis report, Lawrence Sarf, CEO of Creditntell, stated, "An inherent weakness in some financial analysis is that it provides a look backward, which can be dangerous when trying to evaluate whether a specific company will have the liquidity to continue doing business in the near and mid-term. Today's top professionals need to keep their eyes out the windshield, not on the rearview mirror. Our Future Outlook Analysis is the nav-system showing alternative routes and likely travel times, an absolute must in dealing with current retailing economic conditions."
