Commenting on the results, Mr. Gustav Hultgren, CEO of DDM Holding AG, said:

“Following our successful listing on Nasdaq First North Stockholm, our investments increased in the third quarter of 2014 and we have entered new markets. Since the start of the year, we have invested more than EUR 15 million. Entering the fourth quarter, our pipeline of future investments remains strong.

During the third quarter, we have capitalised on the origination efforts we made in the spring. We are pursuing our strategy of geographical diversification by making significant investments outside our traditional core-markets of Russia and Romania. During the first nine months of 2014, we have entered two new markets, Poland and Slovenia, and re-entered the Czech Republic. We expect these investments to start generating cash flow during the fourth quarter 2014.”

About Us

DDM Holding AG (First North: DDM) is a multinational investor in and manager of distressed assets, offering the prospect of attractive returns from the expanding Southern, Central and Eastern Europe market. Since 2007, the DDM Group has built a successful platform in Southern, Central and Eastern Europe, and has acquired 2.3 million receivables with a nominal value of over EUR 3.5 billion. For sellers (banks and financial institutions), management of portfolios of distressed assets is a sensitive issue as it concerns the relationship with their customers. For these sellers, it is therefore critical that the acquirer handles the underlying individual debtors professionally, ethically and with respect. DDM has longstanding relations with sellers of distressed assets, based on trust and the Company’s status as a credible acquirer. The banking sector in Southern, Central and Eastern Europe is subject to increasingly stricter capital ratio requirements resulting in distressed assets being more expensive for banks to keep on their balance sheets. As a result, banks are increasingly looking to divest portfolios of distressed and other non-core assets. DDM Holding AG, the Parent Company, is a company incorporated and domiciled in Baar, Switzerland and listed on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm, Sweden, since August 2014.
