The amount offered on the platform is limited to 25 970€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

The borrower is the main operating company. The financial analysis was carried out on the financials of DG Rénovation without taking into account the target company.

With a cumulated turnover of 1 168 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the companies have a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The decrease of revenue is linked to the development of the manufacture activity : the company had to postpone some contracts. The forecasted revenue of 2018 is better at 1,3M€. The forecast is based on the performance 2017.

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,23 and an excellent financial structure with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,6 and a net Debt / shareholder equity of 0,52.

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

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,23 means that the company has a safety margin of 23% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
