Investment summary

Higher than expected costs, driven by H2 on-field recovery, suggest that our forecast of broadly maintained pre-transfer EBITDA in the year just ended may now be met only thanks to a Champions League revenue loss insurance claim (our estimate €10m), for which we had not previously accounted. However, we are encouraged by continuing top-line buoyancy and the prospect of underlying profit resilience in FY16 despite no Champions League. Initial reaction to new coach Thomas Tuchel seems very positive, eg key players Gündogan and Hummels deciding to stay.

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.
