Financial distress in corporate entity has become more popular and essential to stakeholders of any business organization.

Also data collected are secondary data collected from the financial statement and yearly reports of five (5) firms listed on the GSE over five (5) year-period ranging from 2014 to 2018.

Liquidity, financial leverage, assets quality and profitability of the firm were employed as moderating variables. The outcome of this study established that there was 74% strong positive relationship that existed between the Altman Z-score and the value of the firm in the market (market capitalization). Again this study revealed that there existed a positive beta value of 0.354 between the two variables showing that one (1) unit increase in Altman Z-score (a predictor of reduction in the level of financial distress) would cause an increase in the valued of firm
