Secondly, the specific objective is to determine whether the price for the distress risk was adequately priced by the market. This study seeks to highlight on financial distress as predicted by Altman’s Z-Score model and the firm’s value, which happens to be the market capitalization. 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. A long enough period to accurately predict well their (firms) state of financial distress and detect the impact financial distress has on the value of the firms. Microsoft Excel 2013 and SPSS version 20.0.0.0 were used in analyzing the data gathered. Moreover, assessment of the nature and the extent of the relationship between the dependent variable (value of the firm) and the independent variable (financial distress) were conducted through the use of regression and correlation tests. Liquidity, financial leverage, assets quality and profitability of the firm were employed as moderating variables.
