Mr. Alberto Bernedo, managing director, has overall 15 years of professional experience in the sector.

The company’s main activity is:

  • Transportation and installation of furniture and other decoration items.

The company works with a relatively concentrated client base, such as La Maison du Monde or IKEA.

Project Description

The company requests a loan of 120.000 € over 48 months to finance the purchase 2 land lots in Madrid. This project will be realised next month.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 58.800€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 14.967.422 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with an acceptable operating margin.

Better margins in 2016 were driven by lower costs of gasoline. The forecast is based on the performance in 2018, where the company reported a 18.854.821€ turnover and a pre-tax profit of 648.284€

The borrower has a solid repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,63 and a good financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 2,88 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 142%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 6,1% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,63 means that the company has a safety margin of 63% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
