Analyst’s Opinion

The borrower is a 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 29 639 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the group has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The increase of the revenue and the profitability is linked to the lands development and a good costs management. The forecast is based on the 2018 landing with 35M€ of turnover and the average margin level of the last few years.

The group has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,07 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1,9 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 72%.

Total debt has been restated from inventories under construction with a conservative discount.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 7,05% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,07 means that the company has a safety margin of 7% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
