Project description

The company wishes to borrow 31 500 € over 36 months to finance the repayment of the shareholder loan. This project will be realised next month.

This project is a Flexible Bridge Loan, an amortizable loan with a standard commitment for the first 9 months and the possibility of early repayment at no cost for the remainder of the loan term, even in the event of refinancing by other financial institutions.

Analyst’s opinion

With a turnover of 1 574 161 € in 2017 and an experienced team, the company has a good track record combined with a strong operating margin.

The drop of turnover in 2016 is explained by the exceptional year 2015 with a spot order of the French Marine.

The forecast is based on the performance of the last exercise.

The borrower has an excellent repayment capacity with a forecast FCCR (Fixed Charge Cover Ratio *) at 2,39 and an excellent financial structure, with a forecast net debt / ebitda ratio of 0,3 and a net debt / shareholder equity of 1% taking into account the stable shareholder loan.

The analysis of the project leads to a credit rating of A+ and a 3,1% annual interest rate.

Strong points

  • Good historical performance based on diversified client base.
  • Solid repayment ability with a FCCR of 2,39.
  • Niche market with no other french actor

Points of vigilence

  • Dependance to the French army supplier
  • High level of valuable inventory

*The multiple of FCCR at 2.39 means that the company has a safety margin of 139% relative to its ability to repay its credit maturities.
