Unfortunately, you cannot lend to this project.

Why? This project* does not fall within the regulatory framework of October IFP, defined by the ordinance of 30 May 2014 (ordinance on participatory financing). It is therefore not offered to individual lenders as part of participatory financing.

Project Description

The company requests a loan of 104 000 € over 12 months to finance the purchase of stock of photo printers for smartphones, cameras and gadget toys. This project will be realised next month.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 50 960€, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 2 967 000 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

In 2017 and 2018 the increase in turnover is driven by strategic choices on the markets to be addressed and the opening of new contracts with strong partnerships. The forecast is based on the 2018 performance, taking into account the growth trend of the company, and the result of the Q1 2019 (€2,2 millions achieved in Q1 2019).

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,26 and a good financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1,8 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 198%, taking into account the adjustments on the Factoring line regarding the credit insurance policy subscribed by the borrower.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 6,5% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,26 means that the company has a safety margin of 26% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.

The expert opinion is given as an indication on the basis of the elements provided by the project holder and information from our databases (External data provider). 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 quality key account customers base.
  • Good repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1,26.
  • Strong knowledge of the manager in the distribution market.

Point of caution:

  • Growing fast company with high level of inventory.
