Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 1 084 000 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The turnover has increased in 2018 thanks to the acquisition of two important clients during 2017 while the profitability has decreased due to the lower margin of works performed for these new clients The forecast is based on the historical performance and 2018 approved financial statements

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1.06 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 2.46 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 272%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 6% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1.06 means that the company has a 6% margin of safety in relation to its ability to repay its credit maturities.

The expert opinion is given for information purposes on the basis of the information provided by the project leader and information from our databases (external data file). This opinion is only an element of reflection in the decision making of a lender to participate in the financing of a project.

Strong points:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base;
  • Correct repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1.06 reinforced by the support of banking pool;
  • Very specialized company providing high value added services

Points of caution:

  • Small company in a niche market.
