DDM Holding AG (First North Growth Market: DDM), a specialized multinational investor and manager of non-performing loans and special situations, is publishing the following business update for the DDM Holding Group (the “Group”) in connection to DDM Debt AB’s written procedure for its EUR 50 million senior secured bonds with ISIN SE0010636746.
We are closely monitoring developments across our core markets, as the SCEE region resumes activity following lockdowns, loan moratoriums and courts gradually being reopened with limited operations resulting in delays of case settlements. We expect the coming quarters to continue to be challenging with increased volatility and to experience delays of some collections.
Net collections decreased significantly at the beginning of the second quarter but improved gradually throughout the quarter to end at about EUR 13 million, around 30% below the strong collections in Q1 2020.
Portfolio revaluation & impairments
The portfolio has continued to show resilience during the quarter with downward revaluations and impairments being less than 0.5% of the carrying value of the portfolio at the end of the first quarter despite the impact from COVID-19.
Operating expenses were broadly in line with the previous quarter.
Earnings before income tax
The loss before income tax was about EUR 1 million following the adjustments to the portfolio value.
Net debt & ERC
Net debt and 120-month Estimated Remaining Collections are in line with the previous quarter, adjusted for the collections that have been received during the second quarter.
The Group ended the quarter with about EUR 26 million of cash available.
There are no committed investments other than the previously announced additional 10.1% strategic investment in Addiko Bank AG which is pending regulatory approval.
