Financial ratio analysis method can be used to detect the failure of this company. As of 9th August 2010, there are still thirty four companies listed on Malaysian Stock Exchange classified under PN17 List. These companies have entered into PN 17 list in accordance with existing standards. There are also investors who do not know the status of these listed companies. A real and full attention has not been given yet for these companies. Analytical studies and scientific researches are almost still lacking on PN17 Companies listed in the Malaysian Stock Exchange.
