This paper presents a new clustering technique based on Ex-treme Learning Machine (ELM). This clustering technique can incorpo-rate a priori knowledge (of an expert) to define the optimal structure of the clustering; for example, the number of points in each cluster. Using ELM, the clustering can be rewritten as a Traveling Salesman Problem and solved by a Genetic Algorithm. This efficient and fast clustering technique is used in order to analyze and predict financial distress of French companies.
