Comment by the CEO

Net collections for the third quarter 2014 totalled SEK 24.1M compared to SEK 24.5M for the second quarter 2014.

Operating earnings (EBIT) during the third quarter 2014 was SEK 9.6M compared to SEK 5.6M in the third quarter 2013.

We continue to work towards our strategy of geographical diversification outside our traditional core-markets, Russia and Romania. We continue to see interesting opportunities across the Eastern European region.

As a result the composition of our portfolio has changed during the year. Romania continues to be our biggest and most important market although its share of net collections decreased to 62% during the first nine months ending September 2014 versus 66% for the year ending 31 December 2013.

During the quarter our new CFO, Fredrik Olsson, joined and we welcome him as a strong addition to our management team. We have also made our operations team stronger by hiring a new Head of Collection. These two additions have put us in a position to be able to increase our investment levels further.

We continue to see attractive opportunities across the Eastern European region. Our long-standing relations with international financial institutions, active in Eastern Europe, has earned DDM status as a credible acquirer of assets. This, in combination with our proprietary IT system and focus on solving the individual’s debt situation, are factors in our continued success.

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.
