Financing

Financing and the financing structure have not been affected by any changes this year. The business has only expanded the facility with the bank in order to finance the growing need for working capital. The organisation refinanced and expanded the credit facility to EUR 70 million in accounting year 2019/2020. The solvency of the business has risen from 40.2 percent in 2017/2018 to 41.4 percent in 2018/2019. The current ratio was 1.2 and the quick ratio also came out at 1.2.
