Investment summary

Despite Bundesliga disappointment and coach Klopp’s end-of-season departure, Borussia Dortmund is well-placed to end FY15 on a strong note with potential Europa League qualification and Cup success (Final on 30 May). Maintained pre-transfer EBITDA in its most profitable quarter to December suggests another good year despite on-field setbacks. Although FY16 will reflect the absence from the Champions League, continuing growth opportunities in sponsorship, digital media, broadcasting and merchandising, as well as robust finances, confirm management’s creation of a sustainable business, as evident in our new forecasts with or without UEFA competition. Q3 results due 15 May.

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, 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, fines and a cap on wages and squad size.
