Investment summary

Maintained pre-transfer EBITDA in its most profitable quarter to December suggests another good year, reinforced by qualification as group stage winner for the lucrative knockout stage of the Champions League. Despite concern at the possibility of no European competition next season after a poor (if now greatly improving) Bundesliga performance, continuing strong support from key sponsors and new strategic investors Puma, Evonik and SIGNAL IDUNA recognises management’s creation of a sustainable business (€32m net cash at December following last year's oversubscribed €114m capital increase). We are reviewing FY16 forecasts in the case of no Champions League. 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.
