BORA S.P.A. Corporate Credit Rating (Upgrade)
modefinance published the review of the Solicited Corporate Credit Rating of BORA S.P.A. on its CRA website, and the rating assigned to the entity is B1 (Upgrade). The analysis revealed it is an adequate company with average capability of repaying financial obligations and little affected by adverse economic scenarios.
BORA S.P.A. is a company based in Maiolati Spontini (Ancona), which has been active for over forty years in design, manufacturing, maintenance and molding services of metal components. In the early years of its activity, the Company’s main market was the household appliance, while in recent years the automotive sector has become increasingly strategic.
Key Rating Assumption
The Company BORA S.P.A. presents a “sufficient” economic and financial situation, characterized by a significant improvement in the solvency area thanks to the increase in share capital and to a greater sustainability of the financial debt. The liquidity is appreciable, while the profitability area shows a contraction.
The cash flows analysis shows an increase of liquid resources, due to the greater efficiency in the management of working capital.
The analysis of the Central Credit Register of the Bank of Italy highlights how the Company optimally manages its credit lines, not presenting situations related to disputes or serious anomalies.
At the Governance level, the Company has a collegial form, composed by two shareholders. Starting from September 2020, the Company transformed its legal form into a joint-stock company, thus expanding its shareholder structure.
The Company has a widely adequate positioning in terms of size, being among the bigger companies in terms of turnover of the entire analysis sample. Profitability also shows a good positioning, while solvency remains at a low level.
The peer group’s solvency trend is stable and to be considered adequate, as well as liquidity. Profitability appears to be the least healthy area. The Company operates in the automotive sector, which represents about 51% of turnover, while 42% derives from the household appliances market. The margins of both sectors are expected to grow in 2021.
The ongoing pandemic and the consequent losses lead to a contraction in GDP and employment rate, affecting any company, regardless of the political and economic measures undertaken by the Government.
