Financial Modeling of Zynga

July 15, 2011

Both Groupon and Zynga are coming up with big IPOs. Groupon make us skeptical about multi-billion dollar valuation and claims because of their business model. Zynga’s model of social gaming clears some air by showing real profits on their P&L.

The social gaming firm which relies almost solely on Facebook for its revenues recently filed for S1, and had our modeling team poring through their financials for a number of days.

One aspect that is common in both the business models is that both show high probability to bankruptcy when we use Altman-Z Score on their numbers.

In Groupon’s case almost all year’s Z-Scores are negative whereas Zynga has Z-Score in safe zone from bankruptcy.

Will these two so called fastest growing companies of the decade show signs of insolvency or the discriminant analysis such as Altman Z-score doesn’t apply to these fastest growing companies in the world?
