Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
DSB will require, that candidates fulfill the minimum suitability requirements in respect of economic and financial capacity.
Upon DSB's request, the candidate must submit the following documentation of economic and financial capacity (1-3):
1) Total annual turnover. A statement regarding the candidates’ overall turnover in the last 3 financial years available, depending on the date when the undertaking was set up or started trading, if the information on these turnovers is available. For groups of candidates (e.g. a consortium), the information must be submitted for each participating operator in the group. Where a candidate relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must also be provided;
2) EBIT margin. A statement regarding the candidates’ average EBIT margin (calculated by dividing EBIT with turnover (EBIT/turnover*100)) in the last 3 financial years available, depending on the date when the candidate was set up or started trading, if the information on these turnovers and the figures for EBIT are available. For groups of candidates (e.g. a consortium), the information must be submitted for each participating candidate in the group. Where a candidate relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must also be provided;
3) Solvency ratio. A statement regarding the candidates’ average solvency ratio (calculated as (equity/total as-sets*100) in the last 3 financial years available, depending on the date when the candidate was set up or started trading, if the figures for equity and assets are available. For groups of candidates (e.g. a consortium), the information must be submitted for each participating candidate in the group. Where a candidate relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must also be provided.
DSB will require, that the candidates must meet the following minimum requirements at the time of pre-qualification as an average of the last 3 financial years prior to the deadline.
For submission of application for pre-qualification:
1) A total annual turnover of at least 30 000 000 EUR;
2) An EBIT margin of at least 5 % — calculated by dividing EBIT with turnover (EBIT/turnover*100);
3) A solvency ratio of at least 20 % — calculated by dividing equity with total assets (equity/total assets*100).
If the candidate is the parent company of a group of companies (i.e. the same legal group) the turnover, EBIT margin and solvency ratio may be based on the financial figures of the consolidated financial statement of the group of companies. ‘The same legal group’ shall be defined as entities covered by Directive 2013/34/EU (directive on the annual financial statements, consolidated financial statements and related reports of certain types of undertakings) Art. 22(1).
If the candidate is an intermediate parent company (i.e. the parent company of a ‘sub group’ of companies) or the candidate is relying on the economic and financial capacity of such an intermediate parent company, the turnover, EBIT margin and solvency ratio may be based on the financial figures of the consolidated financial statement of the ‘sub group’ of companies.
If the candidate is relying on the capacity of 1 or more other entities the turnover, EBIT margin and solvency ratio will be calculated on the basis of the combined financial figures of the candidate and the supporting entities. This means, e.g. in relation to solvency ratio, that the calculation will be based on the combined total equity of the candidate and the supporting entities calculated as an average of the last 3 financial years and the combined total assets of the candidate and the supporting entities calculated as an average of the last 3 financial years (solvency ratio = average combined total equity/average combined total assets * 100).
If the candidate and the supporting entity/entities have consolidated financial statements, the calculations of the turnover, EBIT margin and solvency ratio will be based on such consolidated financial statements.
If the candidate is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium), the turnover, EBIT margin and solvency ratio will be calculated in the same manner as candidates with 1 or more supporting entities, i.e. on the basis of the combined financial figures of the participating economic operators.
If any of the participating economic operators (in the consortium) have consolidated financial statements, the calculations concerning these economic operators will be made based on such consolidated financial statements.
DSB intends to ask the candidates to provide documentation for their fulfillment of the minimum requirements concerning financial and economic standing after pre-qualification. The documentation on fulfillment of the minimum requirements concerning financial and economic standing after pre-qualification shall consist of audited financial statements or excerpts thereof for the 3 latest financial years, depending on the date on which the candidate's undertaking was set up or the candidate started trading, where publication of financial statements is required under the law of the country in which the candidate is established or any other form of documentation which DSB deems appropriate, where the candidate is unable to present audited financial statements for a valid reason.
By ‘financial year’ is meant either a calendar year (1 January-31 December) or a season (e.g. 1 July-30 June).

(b) the similar supply of OEM services shall include the overhaul of brake systems by the manufacturer Knorr- Bremse;
