Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 2 982 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

The forecast is based on the 2017 and 2018 actual results.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,39 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,2 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 12%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 7,50% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,39 means that the company has a safety margin of 39% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
