Project Description

The company requests a loan of 50 000 € over 24 months to finance the acquisition of a new and updated management system that will help the company increase its operational efficiency. This project will be realized in the next few months.

This project is not covered by the Italian state guarantee.

The amount offered on the platform is limited to 24 500 €, which is in line with the regulatory limits.

Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 11 147 135 € in 2018 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

Marginality decreased in 2018 due to extraordinary expenses related to the final solution of long standing disputes with some banks and a supplier originated in 2011 after a fire destroyed the main factory. The forecast is based on 2018 performance taking into account the company business plan.

The borrower has a correct repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1. 14 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 1. 59 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 89%. Long term debt is mainly related to rescheduled taxes.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of C and a 6.40% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,14 means that the company has a safety margin of 14% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.

Points of caution:

  • Risk associated with the automotive sector.
