Analyst’s Opinion

With a turnover of 10 712 846 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a two-digits operating margin.

The variation in turnover and profitability is related to the number of fires or rescue missions year after year. The forecast is based on the performance in 2018, where the company reported a 10. 235. 000€ turnover and a pre-tax profit of 288. 191€, considering also the incorporation of one contract from the Portuguese administration of 1. 500. 000€.

The borrower has a good repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 1,21 and a strong financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 3,02 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 112%.

The shareholder’s loans of €7,500,000, which will be blocked for the duration of the October loan, have been considered as quasi-capital.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of B and a 6,75% annual interest rate.

*The multiple of FCCR at 1,22 means that the company has a safety margin of 22% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
