Analyst’s Opinion

The financial analysis was carried out on a cumulative of the financials of Groupe Gesti-Pro and his holding.

With a turnover of 13 667 000 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

Other the past years, the decline in turnover is linked to a more difficult economic climate and a decline in new contracts signed.

The forecast is based on the historical performanceThe borrower has an excellent repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 2,27 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1,5 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 122%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of A and a 3,90% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 2,27 means that the company has a safety margin of 127% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
