Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 751 850 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

Reduction of profitability in 2016 related with the refurbishment of the kitchen.  The forecast is based on performance in 2017. 

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,27 and a good financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 3,15 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 60%.

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

The loan has the personal guarantee of Jose Luis Capo Antich. 

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,27 means that the company has a safety margin of 27% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
