Investment summary

While maintained revenue in H116 was no mean feat without the Champions League, pre-transfer EBITDA (our key metric) was a casualty (-59%) of much higher than expected costs, driven by the team’s outstanding performance. With inflationary wage pressure unlikely to abate in the face of continued success, we are lowering our EBITDA forecasts by €10m and €12m for FY16 and FY17. However, we are encouraged that Dortmund’s current runaway second place in the Bundesliga, with less than a quarter of the season to go, justifies confidence in a possible step change in returns in FY17, assuming Champions League qualification. Meanwhile continued Europa League and German Cup progress offer a potential boost to this year's earnings.

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.
