DDM provides business update in connection to the written procedure for its EUR 50 million senior secured bonds

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.

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

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.

Liquidity

The Group ended the quarter with about EUR 26 million of cash available.

Acquisitions

There are no committed investments other than the previously announced additional 10.1% strategic investment in Addiko Bank AG which is pending regulatory approval.

About Us

DDM Holding AG (First North Growth Market: DDM) is a specialized multinational investor and manager of non-performing loans and special situations, 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 4 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 Zug, Switzerland and listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market in Stockholm, Sweden, since August 2014.
