Investment summary

The newly-announced rights issue, potentially raising c €114m (gross), ie four for 11 at €4.66 per share, is welcome in terms of cash and the scope for a step change in profit. Binding undertakings from key sponsors Puma, Evonik and SIGNAL IDUNA, covering c €82m of the issue, recognise management’s creation of a sustainable business with underlying profit growth. This was shown by record pre-transfer EBITDA in FY14, which confirmed that the Wembley-led comparative was not as good as it gets. We will review fully our forecasts on completion of the capital increase and release of the annual report.

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' applies initially to 2012 financial statements, obliging 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.
