Project Description

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 8 406 000 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with an acceptable operating margin.

The growth in turnover is linked to the increase in the number of orders and volume. Forecasts are based on 2018 performance.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,06 and an strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1,9 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 71%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 4,45% annual interest rate.

*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.

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 diversified client base.

  • The other company in the group are growing fast and pool the production and the distribution on many products.
