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

"Following the first quarter of 2014 with geopolitical turbulence and pressure on the Russian Ruble, the second quarter 2014 was characterised by two mile stone events. Firstly, preparations for the listing of DDM on Nasdaq OMX First North in Stockholm and secondly, increased portfolio investments.

During the second quarter 2014, we reengaged with investments in Russia and also made a first investment in Slovenia. During the first six months of 2014, DDM invested in portfolios to a total amount of EUR 7.1 M.

About Us

DDM Treasury AB (publ) is a subsidiary of DDM Holding AG (First North: DDM) a leading acquirer and manager of distressed assets, offering the prospect of attractive returns from the expanding Central and Eastern Europe market. Since 2007, the DDM Group has built a successful platform in Central and Eastern Europe, currently managing 2.3 million receivables with a nominal value of over EUR 2 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 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.
