Project Description

The company requests a loan of 250,000 € over 36 months to finance the acquisition of a led wall, which consists of a series of smaller led screens than can be combined to form a larger surface. This project will be realised in the next few months.

At least 40% of the risk of this loan is covered by a guarantee from the Republic of Italy via the ‘Fondo di Garanzia PMI’.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 122 500€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 6 089 000 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

Turnover has increased thanks to the laquering services offered that have gained popularity lately. The forecast is based on 2018 performance considering also the historical trends.

The borrower has a solid repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1.59 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1.73 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 283%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 5.10% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,6 means that the company has a safety margin of 60% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
