Small Business Credit Index

Small business credit conditions bounce back in Q2

In line with expectations, small-business credit conditions improved in the second quarter. The Experian/Moody’s Analytics Small Business Credit Index (SBCI) gained 2.4 points to hit 112.2 from a revised 109.8 (previously 110.5) in the first quarter. The index measures credit quality for firms with fewer than 100 workers, and last quarter’s move puts it at an all-time high. Credit conditions for small firms deteriorated in the first three months of 2014 as an exceptionally harsh winter hurt business activity. Moody’s Analytics estimates weather contributed about 1 percentage point to the 2.1 percent annualized contraction in U.S. gross domestic product in the first quarter.
