Analyst’s Opinion

The borrower is the main operating company representing 47% of the group’s turnover and 47% of the profitability.

With a turnover of 816 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The variation of revenue and profitability are linked to the opening of new sites and maintenance costs. The forecast is based on 2017, including the new debt raised in 2018 for the creation of Monteclin.

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,56 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 2 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 31%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B+ and a 5,1% annual interest rate.

Strong points:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base.
  • Good repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1,56.
  • Positioning combining nature and strong sensations with ecological activities and very good notation of 4,5/5 on Tripadvisor

Point of vigilence:

  • Competitive sector

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,56 means that the company has a safety margin of 56% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
