Profit and loss account (summary)

EOS Consolidated achieved an annual profit of 173.2 million euros in the financial year 2016/17. Sales revenue increased by 11.4 per cent. One of the key reasons behind this development is the enhanced return flow from substantially increased investment in debt purchases. Another is the acquisition of the companies of the Contentia Group during the year, which made considerable contributions to growth.

Operating income was up by 70.8 million euros compared to the past year. Despite a decline in the number of employees, labour costs remain 6 million euros above the level of the previous year. The sale of the Brazilian company has meant a large number of employees have left EOS Consolidated. Scheduled and unscheduled depreciation on intangible assets and tangible assets are virtually unchanged compared to the previous year.

Equity and financing

The equity ratio of EOS Consolidated saw a slight decline to 29.2 per cent in the financial year 2016/17. This continues to be assessed as quite robust for a financial services provider. The increase in earned equity reflects the excellent result of the financial year.

An increase in financing needs owing to the high investments made in the past financial year was covered predominantly by borrowing from the shareholder and financial institutions. The largest share of these loans has an average term with a maturity of up to five years.
