Altman Z-Score, 2009: 1.68
J. Alexander's (JAX) came dangerously close to the "distressed" threshold with a Z-Score of 1.97.

Alexander's said it returned to profitability in the second quarter, helped by stronger overall revenue. The Nashville-based company earned $26,000, or zero cents per share, after losing $796,000, or 12 cents per share, in the year-earlier quarter. Revenue pushed up 4.6% to $36.3 million.
