2015 Net Income for the year of C-Quadrat Investment AG

Group's net profit for the year amounts to EUR 20.7 million (2014: EUR 22.4 million) / Dividend proposal for shareholders' meeting: EUR 4.0 per share (2014: EUR 3.0 per share)

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, ) In 2015 C-QUADRAT Investment AG realized another highly successful financial year, the second-best in its 25-year history. Above all, this success reflected healthy core business, further growth in the volume of assets under its management thanks to the performance of C-QUADRAT’s funds and the expansion of its sales activities.

As of the balance sheet date, C-QUADRAT Investment AG had increased the total volume of assets under its management by approx. 4% to EUR 5.4 billion. Due to a changeover of commission payment procedures – funds of C-QUADRAT Kapitalanlagegesellschaft have been outsourced to external management companies – an annual comparison of the total revenue from regular management fees and performance-related management fees for the years 2014 and 2015 is not possible. All in all, total revenues remained at a high level (2015: EUR 83.8 million; 2014: EUR 94.9 million). Moreover, the solid performance of the funds of C-QUADRAT and its subsidiaries once again generated considerable performance-related management fees, in the amount of EUR 31.2 million. Net fee and commission income excluding performance-related management fees increased to EUR 22.4 million (2014: EUR 21.2 million)

In terms of costs, personnel expenses were reduced by 5% to EUR 11.0 million, while other administrative expenses and other operating expenses have declined by 1.2% to EUR 9.6 million.

The associates likewise once again all provided significant contributions to consolidated earnings. Net income from associates amounted to EUR 7.4 million.

In overall terms, in 2015 a net profit for the year (after taxes) of EUR 20.7 million (2014: EUR 22.4 million) was realized.

Earnings per share amount to EUR 4.59 (2014: EUR 5.05). The dividend proposal is EUR 4.0 per share (2014: EUR 3.0 per share). Dividend day has been moved from May 23, 2016 to June 22, 2016. The updated financial calendar is available at www.c-quadrat.at in the Investor Relations section.

C-QUADRAT founder and management board member Alexander Schütz says of these results: “In 2015, C-QUADRAT achieved the second-best result in its 25-year history. Thanks to the continuing growth in the volume of assets managed by the C-QUADRAT Group, the company maintained a strong revenue base. We have not quite achieved our cost-cutting goals and will continue to pursue them in 2016. We will continue to follow our company’s dual strategy of organic and inorganic growth.”
