Project Description

The works plan is of 250 000 €. The company requests a loan of 53 000 € over 48 months to finance the works in the restaurant, in line with their strategy to renew it. The balance is financed by bank. The restaurant is closed from January to February. This project will be realised this quarter.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of €1 158 000 in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

In 2018, the expected level of activity is €1 250 000 and a margin level equivalent to 2017.

The increase of the revenue and the profitability is driven by the new management, and the changes of menu card. The forecast has been based on the new historical performances.

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,61 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,7 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 77%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 7,15% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,61 means that the company has a safety margin of 61% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
