Analyst’s opinion

With a turnover of 4 438 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

Increase of turnover driven by the activity developpement and the client base improvement. Decrease of Ebitda margin in 2017 is driven by exceptional bonuses to employees and office renovation. The forecast is based on the performance of 2017.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,08 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,83 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 55%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B+ and a 4,45% annual interest rate.

Strong points

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base.
  • Correct repayment ability with a FCCR of 1,08 reinforced by the support of banking pool.
  • French leadership and strong managers’s experience.

Point of vigilence:

  • Fast growing company.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1.08 means that the company has a safety margin of 8% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
