Their major differentiators are their technical capacity for ornamental production, their volume capacity, as well as some of their unique veined sandstone varieties.

PD: the concessions have 70+ years to go.

Financial Summary

With a 1,6 MM€ yearly sales, the company has a relatively low turn-over in relation to their real production capacity. Mainly due to the lack of commercial input.

However, with a €600K+ yearly SDE the owners had no urge to grow any further and concentrated on creating the best possible product & quality for recurring customers.

In addition to the solid cash-flow the company has a considerable amount of heavy equipment & machinery as well as the 2 quarries which have been appraised over €3.5MM

Investment Rationale

The main asset are the 2 quarry concessions and mining (& probing) licences. These mining concessions are unique. Moreover, the company counts with a surplus production capacity. Each year new machinery is acquired. Therefore the company is very scalable without additional CAPEX.
