Update on projected ERC

DDM Holding AG (First North: DDM) provides an update of its projected Estimated Remaining Collections (“ERC”) in light of committed investments including the previously announced agreement to acquire a significant portfolio containing secured corporate receivables in Croatia. The Croatian acquisition is made through a Joint Venture structure together with B2Holding where each party holds 50%.

Once completed, the acquisitions will strengthen the overall earnings capacity and several key financial metrics, including ERC.

ERC is expected to increase by about EUR 100 million or 42% to EUR 340 million, from EUR 240 million at the end of December 2018. The majority of the collections are expected to be received in the first three years and thereby accelerate the overall collections profile. DDM expects to be fully invested following the acquisitions.

The Croatian Joint Venture acquisition is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close in the first or at the beginning of the second quarter of 2019.

About Us

DDM Holding AG (First North Growth Market: 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 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 Baar, Switzerland and listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market in Stockholm, Sweden, since August 2014.
