Analyst’s Opinion

On the last exercise, the financial statements represent 18 months of activity due to the owners’ transition in 2016.

With a turnover of 732 287 € over 18 months in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

Over the last two years, the increase of profitability is linked to lower salaries and a better control over expenses. The forecast is based on the performance of the last exercise calculated on 12 months

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,23 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1,7 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 57%.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B+ and a 4,80 % annual interest rate.

Strong points:

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base.
  • Correct repayment ability with a forecasted FCCR of 1,23 reinforced by the support of shareholders.
  • Good record of the management team that operated 2 restaurants in the last 15 years.

Points of vigilence:

  • Activity dependant to seasonnality
  • Highly competitive market

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,23 means that the company has a safety margin of 23% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
