Project Description

The company wishes to borrow 104 000 € over 36 months to finance the recruitment of 2 project managers and a sales representative. This project will be realised in the next few months.

As a reminder, the Lendix lending community supported A.M.S Evenement in 2015 with two loan of 150 000 € (repaid in full) and 90 000 € to finance the purchase of multimedia equipments.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 50 960€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 3 760 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The continued increase in turnover is linked to the recurrence of activity and the acquisition of new customers. In 2016, the decline in profitability is linked to major investments in the business.

The forecast is based on the 2018 activity forecast.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,13 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 2,8 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 135%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 6,95% annual interest rate.

Strong points:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base.
  • The repayment capacity is correct with an expected CCRF of 1.13 reinforced by the support of the bank pool.
  • Recurrence of activity

Points of vigilence:

  • business seasonality
  • long payment periods for clients

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,13 means that the company has a safety margin of 13% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
