Analyst Opinion

With a turnover of 658 000 € in 2017 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 in 2018, which shows an increase in revenue.

The borrower has a solid repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,71 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,57 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 82%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 6,45% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,71 means that the company has a safety margin of 71% 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.
