Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 5 164 199 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

Over the past 3 years the increase of profitability has been driven by a good control on the fixed cost base combined with a recurrent increase of turnover in a context of a growing market trend The forecast is based on the 2017 financials taking into account interim performance.

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1.21 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1.83 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 235%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 5,50% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,21 means that the company has a safety margin of 21% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
