Borussia Dortmund GmbH & Co. KGaA announces preliminary results for the first half of the fiscal year 2015/2016 (July 1st until December 31st, 2015):
Borussia Dortmund increased Group revenues by EUR 17.8 m. (i.e. 11.8%) to EUR 168.1 m. (previous year EUR 150.3 m.) in the first half-year. Adjusted for transfer revenues the total Group revenues amounted EUR 143.5 m. and were thus nearly on the previous half-year level (EUR 144.7 m) although the club did not participate in the UEFA Champions League this season.
The operating result (EBITDA) of the Group amounted EUR 25,5 m. (previous first half-year EUR 30.7 m). This decline is directly connected with the reinforcement of the first team to increase the sportive competiveness in order to achieve the qualification for the UEFA Champions League in the season 2016/2017.
Group Equity totalled EUR 276.4 m. on December 31st, 2015; this corresponds to an equity capital ratio of 73.0 %. Group cash and cash equivalents amounted EUR 29.3 m. as of that date.
The result from operating activities (EBIT) had been affected extraordinarily by depreciations on an intangible asset in an amount of approx. EUR 7.5 m and therefore amounted EUR -3,9 m. (previous half-year EUR 10.1 m.). According to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) the Borussia Dortmund Group earnings amounted EUR -4.7 m. in the first half-year (previous half-year EUR 3.7 m.)
Personnel expenses changed to EUR 66,1m. (previous first half-year EUR 56.6 m.). Depreciation and amortization resulted in EUR 29,4 m. (previous first half-year EUR 20.6 m.). Other operating expenses amounted EUR 64,0m. (previous first half-year EUR 53.9 m.) in the report period. The financial result amounted EUR -0,6 m. (previous first half-year EUR -6.5 m.), the tax result amounted EUR -0,1 m. (previous first half-year EUR 0.1 m.).
Borussia Dortmund GmbH & Co. KGaA recorded in the first half of the fiscal year 2015/2016 earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in an amount of EUR -11,3m. (previous first half-year EUR 2.5 m.). Earnings before taxes (EBT) amounted EUR -5,1 m. (previous first half-year EUR 2.1. m.) and the semi-annual result amounted EUR -5,2m. (previous first half-year EUR 1.7 m.) in the report period.
