Investment summary

While costs continue to be an issue (FY16 pre-transfer EBITDA was slightly below our expectations), Dortmund's finances (revenue +7% despite no Champions League and €30m net cash at year end) are impressively strong. The simultaneous loss of key players Hummels, Mkhitaryan and Gündogan necessarily invites caution, but coach Tuchel’s record of player development and the availability of significant funds for reinvestment make for exciting opportunity. Understandably, given squad rebuilding, financial implications are uncertain. We are in the process of reviewing our forecasts.

Industry outlook

Unsustainable spend on wages and transfers is increasingly being penalised by new UEFA Financial Fair Play requirements. Notwithstanding a phased implementation, a 'break-even requirement' applied initially to 2012 financial statements, obliges clubs to spend no more than they generate over a rolling three-year period. Sanctions vary from a warning to a ban from UEFA competition, fines and a cap on wages and squad size.
