The former, through a qualitative, proposed descriptive and quantitative perspective. From the discriminant function obtained and the statistics analyzed, we can conclude that the financial indicators Operating Assets Return (AS), Asset Turnover (AT), sector Level of Indebtedness (LI), show significant differences from one period to another. Nevertheless, only the average long-term leverage (ALL) financial indicator showed improvement from one period to another. Finally, we could structure a robust analysis methodology that evaluates the evolution of financial results in business organizations, being of greatly useful and of value as a scientific reference on the analysis of financial indicators for management decision making.
