Investment summary

The recent oversubscribed capital increase, which raised c €114m (gross) at €4.66 per share, is welcome in terms of cash and the scope for a step change in profit. Strong support from key sponsors and new strategic investors Puma, Evonik and SIGNAL IDUNA recognises 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 the imminent 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' 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.
