Lawrence E. Golub, CEO of Golub Capital, said:
The Golub Capital Altman Index for the fourth quarter of 2016 indicates that the economy is still growing, though we are seeing continued profit margin pressure. Revenue growth in the Consumer sector is strong at 5.50%, as a result of a more confident consumer with additional purchasing power driven by a strong dollar and payrolls, coupled with the unemployment rate at new lows. Weakness in the restaurant sector is driving a modest decline in Consumer sector profits.
