Analyst’s Opinion

As closing date changed , turnover of 2015 represents 18 month of activity

With a turnover of 33 047 000 € 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 performance of 2017.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,14 and a good financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 4,99 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 114%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 5,70% annual interest rate.

Strong point:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base;
  • Correct repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1,14 reinforced by the support of banking pool;
  • High quality "Made in Italy" products

Point of Vigilence:

  • High leverage due to high level of stock.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,14 means that the company has a safety margin of 14 % relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
