The company requests a loan of 45 000 € over 36 months to finance renovation work in the pharmacy. This project will be realised next month.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 991 000 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

In 2017 the decrease in turnover is driven by a decrease in the price of medicines over the past 10 years. In avril 2018, 2 new doctors arrived in the city, located on the same street as the pharmacy, which allows for increased attendance. The forecast is based on the historical performance driven by a new dynamism linked to the arrival of 2 new doctors in the same street and the closing of the third competitor in juilly 2018.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,16 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,62 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 17%.

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

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,16 means that the company has a safety margin of 16% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
