Comment by the CEO:

DDM continues to grow its investments and increase its ERC (Estimated Remaining Collections). Gross ERC has increased 6% compared to fourth quarter 2014. As a result of the increased investments, net collections in the first quarter of 2015 amounted to EUR 5.7M, an increase of 102% compared to first quarter 2014, mainly driven by some portfolios performing better than the average collection curve.

In early February we closed our first transaction in Hungary. While the invested amount is relatively minor (EUR 2.7M), this investment is of major value for DDM as this was made in partnership with one of the world’s largest financial institutions and is the result of long-standing work to make joint investments. We have a good opportunity to grow profit on our investment portfolio in Hungary on the back of this cooperation.

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.
