Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 7 398 214 € in 2016 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The forecast is based on the performance of 2016 taking into account 2017 draft account.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,06 and a good financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 4,79 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 2,25% taking into account shareholder loan blocked over the period of lendix loan.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 7,50% annual interest rate.

Strong points:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base;
  • Correct repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1,06 reinforced by the support of shareholders;
  • Longstanding company with valuable branded product portfolio.

Points of vigilence:

  • High competitive market;
  • Level of debt.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,06 means that the company has a safety margin of 6 % relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
