Like all projects presented to individual lenders on Lendix, it is co-financed with institutional investors, sophisticated investors and the management of Lendix, subscribers to the Lendix Fund.

Analyst’s Opinion

The borrower is the french holding company whose revenues are derived from services invoiced to its subsidiaries. The financial analysis was carried-out on consolidated financial statements, which reflect the group’s performance.

With a turnover of 140 762 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the group has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

Over the past years, the group performed a global reorganization of the business with relocation to Mexico and China (2 plants vs. 1) as well as the reduction in temporary staff. This redeployment plan has been fully supported by the current shareholder with massive cash injection. Even if the group is still generating losses, the profitability has been improving from 5,5% to 9,5% in 2017 which shows positive output from the restructuring plan.

The forecast is based on the performance 2018 of the group taking into account the rental savings on the Thyez building.

The group has a solid repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,98 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 2,00 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 42% taking into account the subordinated shareholder loans.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B+ and a 4,25% annual interest rate.
