The variables used are ROE (Return On Equity), DER (Debt to Equity Ratio), CR (Current Ratio), WCR (Working Capital Ratio) and Z-Score.Findings - The results show that ROE and WCR have a positive significant effect on Z-Score Altman's financial distress, DER and CR have negative significant effect on Z-Score Altman's financial distress. While simultaneously shows that at least one variable have a significant effect on Z-Score Altman financial distress.The financial condition of companies in the real estate sector has worsened over the years, marked by the increasing number of companies that were in financial distress from 5 companies in 2014 to 9 companies in 2018. Likewise with companies in the financial condition of gray areas from 8 companies in 2014 became 9 companies in 2018.
