COMPANY VALUATION ANALYSIS
Going Concern Valuation
The going concern valuations value the company on the basis that it continues to trade without the threat of liquidation for the foreseeable future. These valuations are primarily profit and cashflow based.
Valuations   Valuation Measures
Estimated High Value £6,800,000   Retained Profit £(44,026)
Estimated Mid Value £5,100,000   EBIT £81,793
Estimated Low Value £3,400,000   EBITDA £327,830
 
Liquidation Valuation
The liquidaton valuation values the company as if it were to cease trading and assets were subject to rapid disposal to cover liabilities. This valuation is primarily asset based.
Valuations   Valuation Measures
Estimated High Value £4,400,000   Total Assets £13,095,844
Estimated Mid Value £3,400,000   Net Assets £6,765,264
Estimated Low Value £2,100,000   Tangible Equity £6,765,264
The above valuations are based on our own algorithms and take no account of many factors that can influence actual valuations realized and should not therefore be assumed to be accurate.

FINANCIAL STATUS ANALYSIS
In this section we present the risk assessment of our financial status model developed over 20 years of corporate risk assessment.

Analysis:

The overall assessment and score presented here is based only on the financial results of the company up to 30 November 2016.

The latest turnover is £15.9m compared to the previous periods of £17.2m and £16.0m. The total change in sales over three years is -0.6%. The average trend over three years is 0.0%. The change in turnover for the latest period was -7.7% which indicates that the pace of growth has slowed.

EBITDA measures earnings before interest and taxation, and depreciation and amortization. The latest accounts show pre-tax profits of £24,458 and £57,335 interest paid. EBITDA for the most recent period was £327,830 as against £1.5m and £498,442 for prior years. The company has an average £763,262 EBITDA over three years, so the latest EBITDA is lower. Income drawn by directors during the latest period was £804,902.

Retained profits after all costs and dividends provides a further key indicator of cash generating potential. Recent retained profits have not been consistent. For the most recent period no profits were retained. For the previous period £1.1m retained profits are shown. When the latest loss and the previous retained profit are taken together, the average level of retained profits is £545,262.

There is a healthy surplus in working capital and all known short term obligations appear to be comfortably covered.

As at the latest accounts the company has net assets of £6.8m. There are no intangible assets included in the net assets value so all assets are tangible.

This appraisal is based on the financial performance and the overall balance sheet status. Later accounts are now over a month overdue. Delayed disclosure of financial results is not a positive indicator for financial status analysis purposes and under the circumstances we cannot advise unsecured business dealings based on figures this out-of-date. In view of this information we have qualified our credit opinion. Although the financial status may appear to justify the credit opinion, more information may be necessary before proceeding.

ALTMAN Z SCORE CREDIT RISK RATING
There have been many bankruptcy predictors developed, however none has been so thoroughly tested and broadly accepted as the Altman Z-Score.
Z Score: 5.06
Risk Band: 1
Risk Band Description: Low Risk
It should be noted that the Z Score model has limited tolerance and therefore sometimes flags increased risk more readily for companies in industries which may normally operate with technically weaker characteristics.
Z Score Bands:
1 Low Risk 3.00 and above
2 Caution 2.63 - 2.99
3 Risk of Failure within 2 years 1.24 - 2.62
4 High Probability Failure Below 1.24
